125th anniversary shirt

Recommended Posts

I wish a fan would make a really decent anniversary shirt and sell it. I think I would wear one to make a point. There shouldn’t be any issues with copyrite, just don’t have a badge or sponsor, or make up an anniversary badge. Any profit could go to charity after expenses of course.

Yeah, I’m only dreaming but I cant believe we can’t do something more appropiate.

Just to stress, this is my option as a fan. 

@Olé ?

That's a really nice idea. There's lots of members on this forum with lots of skills. Perhaps it could be an OTIB initiative. We've seen the success of the OSIB podcast (which was originally brainstormed here). Surely amongst our membership we could arrange this with a few skilled members.

Well, @Spike designs kits and @Olé has his South Bristol clothing brand. 
Do it lads.

Perhaps as the formation date suddenly changed in the summer from 1897 to 1894 the club will have another attempt at getting it right in three years time?

Though can't help thinking the anniversary was actually in 2019?

Or was the Fulham game chosen as they were our first opponents? I can't say I have seen anywhere what is significant about the date / game chosen to mark the 125 years?

Yep, plenty of good designers on here and @Olé understands the stock/supply chain side of things. Easy to make a shortlist and have members vote.. could be a good solution if this kit is genuinely real and not a joke.

It doesn’t have to be a football shirt, maybe a T-Shirt perhaps, or hoodie might be good. But a fitting alternative as I said. 

I don’t want to take revenue away from the club, of course I understand the importance, but it is also vital not only to produce something that the fans want but to be able to sell it too. This shirt ticks neither box for me.

FFS..............I haven't had time to read all the comments, so forgive me if i am repeating previous views.    It looks like a object designed by a commitee,  a complete mess, and a seriously missed opportunity.  How come no one stopped, looked around and said  " This is awful?"   A major landmark in the clubs history, has produced something akin to a Primary school art class's attempt at a quilt for a hamster cage.  I hate it with a passion.  What ever it cost's................. is far too much! 🙃

I don’t think you have to worry about taking revenue away from the club. There won’t be much

Go back to our origins and recreate one of these surely?

Well found Noggers. Of course, the kit on the right is Bristol South End's strip from season 1894/95. The top is similar to this season's design and would be a deserved representation of our 125th (plus one) anniversary.

Could someone please start a poll for this classic, versus the cut 'n shut?  If it's well supported perhaps we could then forward the results to the club.

To be fair, you can't just make a good football kit. It needs months of planning. Although there's been huge developments in "direct to garment" and "all over" digital shirt printing, generally unless you are in full on mass production, you will be using a "blank" (a generic* item of clothing in a default style and pattern) and then adding a screen (ink design printed over in a few colours) or embroidering a logo.

A great design of football shirt (ie like the broken glass nibor shirt in my first season) needs the material printing with an utterly amazing pattern, the shirt sewn together and the badge added or embroidered. This is why Adidas and other big brands simply  give clubs templates to add their badges to, costs too much to tool up for a unique material and fit. Not going to happen.

Given all the preparation required it is even more amazing that people at City had this long organising material and production of a bespoke design they must have thought up while overdosing on PCP and MDMA.

For anyone who knows them, Streatham Rovers are an exception, if we can find out who did their shirt which I assume is low volume but utterly ridiculously bespoke in a way our 125 shirt can only aspire to, I'm happy to work with @Spike to see what's possible.

*self-indulgent disclaimer: I use blanks but go out of my way to never use the default or cheapest and always find less common or higher quality items, like the ultra soft summer cotton tees or new fitted hoodies.

Not even Streatham Rovers best 🙂 the one in Purple and Green with about 30 evil sponsors is ridiculous. Wouldn't buy it but at least they are actually wilfully taking the p***. As opposed to City. Or maybe not.

That one is great! I just can't understand how crap that City design is, I was really hoping for something worth buying and putting up in my games room, along with my other City shirts and the Gerry Gow shirt that you produced

I don’t really hear  Dunderheads said much, is it a thing maybe on social media? But I don’t like the brand name Dunder much. I’m not so bothered it’s a betting company, I think if you are going to bet you will anyway, and probably place your bets with a better known rival company. So maybe that’s my issue, if you are going to have a sponsor have somebody known, even a betting company.

I guess the money was the draw for the club, and everyone has to start somewhere. But if you are going small then go for a local business, or if you are going large, then go large. I can’t believe as a Championship club we couldn’t attract a better known sponsor?

But I agree that this bloody awful anniversary shirt should not have the current sponsor blazed across the front. But I guess Dunder will argue they have paid to have every match this season so that’s what they will expect.

Dunderhead has been around a long time.

 I don’t really like them as sponsors but there’s not much I can do about it. 
Shame it’s got that bloody awful white stripe across the chest

Any word from the club yet, I would imagine they have seen the feedback 

We've seen the negative feedback but what we don't know is how many fans are happy with the shirt and have pre ordered it - it's a 'limited edition' so perhaps the club have sold as many as they hoped to.

In which case no doubt they'd see it as a success.

On the basis that you have to pay in full on pre-ordering I very much doubt it. As @Olé says these things take a lot of time to get to market so I can only imagine this is the real deal. Unfortunately. 

One thing’s for sure, it will for evermore crop up in the usual rehash of the Worst Kits Ever articles that tend to come out at the start of every season. Might even be top, beating Coventry and Norwich! No such thing as bad publicity?

Why oh why didn’t they do a new version of the kit they had quite a few years back where all the players who had ever played for us were on it, tiny little names for those of you too young to remember. 

Gloucester Rugby did that, it was on Points West last night with Ally Durden and an old player, who's name I can't remember. It looked good.

The only issue with this is that you'll never please everyone. 

I've made so many kits in the past and you can tick every box thrown at you and still not please everyone. 

I think the issue with the 125 celebration idea is that you really need to capture the history of the club and satisfy numerous generations who have all seen something different to make them fall in love with the club. 

Do you use the current Robin? The old Robin? The coat of arms? Do you add elements such as the 82, suspension bridge etc? 

Do you go for a classic all red or mix it up with some of the white elements used in the past? 

 

Personally I think the best "classic" kit would be a simple all red design with a white collar, maybe have the suspension bridge with an 82 over it on the back before the neck, also in red so that it is only noticeable up close. 

That said I'm sure there would be plenty of people who would complain that the design would be too plain.

Imo, it's aimed at youth, not old gits like us.

I've noticed the trend with youth is to wear clothing that clashes and looks a complete mess.

Just my hunch.
