Compared to....Primark? 

£30 for a tee, £40 for a polo and £65 for a hoodie is pretty standard these days, isn't it? Even for your not exactly high end fashion brands like Ralph Lauren, Hilfiger, Lacoste etc, you'd be looking at double those prices. 

As long as the quality is decent, and effort has clearly gone into some of the designs, then I'd say the pricing is reasonable. 

Those anthem jackets look very nice. 

£30 for a t-shirt and £65 for a hoodie reasonable? Not for me.

Have to say.... they look quite smart. Not my sort of thing, but you would imagine that they'll shift those in strong numbers. Would guess the youth will be impressed.

Price wise, seems to be on point for items you won't find elsewhere, somewhere between 'branded' and high-street.

Hope they do well out of it.

Compared to Brentford, £20

Swansea, £16 (prior to being on offer) 

https://www.store.swanseacity.com/leisure-wear/mens-leisure

Birmingham £20

https://blues.clubstore.co.uk/fashion-wear

That's just a handful of clubs. Which are 2/3rds of the price.

Same conversation had basically every year, last season and this season will come down to how much of the money Hummel wanted as part of the deal, could be Joma, Umbro etc wanted a lower percentage

If you go on sites like 80s casual classics you be looking at lower prices for Benetton, Ellesse, Fila, Lacoste, Sergio Tachinni .. And err Hummel.

Er...none of that stuff is branded. That's why it's cheaper.

Some absolutely horrendous clobber for all three of those clubs too.

Ours looks much, much better. And that's what you're paying for, an experienced sports clothing manufacturer.

Some of the new stuff is really nice....  some of it is just plain weird....

Take this "sweater" for example....it has no body - just sleeves.....  that's just odd....!

The anthem jackets are lovely though....£65 is a little steep for me, so I'll have to pick and choose which one to get from store credit when I've bought my lads Christmas Presents! :)

Certainly not Lacoste: Lacoste | 80s Casual Classics 

They have a few Hummel tees on there for £24.95 but they aren't essentially limited edition, City branded clothing. So, no, not lower pricing at all.

I still don't believe that fans should have to pay £30 for a Bristol City t-shirt. That's extremely expensive in my opinion and prices out a lot of fans. 

Horrendous is also subjective, that "Bristol" inspired drumstick-esque shirt in my opinion is horrendous.

Fair enough, each to their own.

Though wait until you find out how much the litany of kids down at AG pay for their Stone Island, CP Company and Canada Goose jackets, and Dsquared baseball caps.

Sorry but Bristol City is not a designer brand so not so relevant in my opinion.

Find out how much the average City fans pay for their M&S, Next etc clothes.

If you go through it thoroughly there are all sorts on there. Certainly Lacoste prices will alter because the site adjusts prices constantly sometimes days after stocking. The sales section sees casual wear which isn't double those prices. I genuinely feel City's prices are on the too heavy side.

If my son wants City things I will show him alternatives. He then frequently gets something else via his choice not mine. North Face is winning.

And the 70% off section at https://www.terracesmenswear.co.uk/ often throws up a few bargains.

Will have to have a look. I'm not a scrooge but frequently shop v sites x site. Thanks.

Not sure about being 'priced out' for a lot of people thirty quid is a few hours in a pub with the Doris at a tenner a round, or a splash-and-dash visit to a petrol station.

For those who wouldn't ordinarily spend that sort of money on a t-shirt, it probably dies seem pricey, for those who likely spend double that, it looks like fair value.
