Having seen the orginal pictures of the shirts, I was quite critical of the design. Now having seen the shirt up close on Sunday I feel I was a little hasty, I think apart from the over generous collar and the fabric the shirt design its self is very good I love the red accent lines and stiching and the army logo is spot on.

Shame the origianl pictures didnt do the shirt or the designer justice. So Im now the proud owner of the snazziest shirt in the league biggrin.gif

i was same, the design looked plain and boring on the picture, you couldnt make out the red detail on it, but having seen it in the flesh its a very smart shirt. havent bought mine yet waiting to see what the away shirt is like.

after seeing it proper for the first time on sun i could have probably lived with the design but I'm afraid the quality for the price is poor for me, like i've said before 'a glorified T-shirt'

It was the design I was praising, the material is a little flimsy for a rugby shirt. I dont feel ripped off as I see it for what it is, a limited edition/production item with only a thousand or so being produced. It is also a way of th e club making money and if the club didnt make money from fans there would be no club. If i were buying it from Jon barrie then yes I would feel that I was being ripped off, but buying it from Rovers I am just helping the cause.

dont we just buy the shirt to give the club much needed funds otherwise they could drop the price of the shirt by a fiver and put a quid on the turnstyle fee
the shirt is only designed to last for 10 months anyhow

so if beer was a tenner a pint, programme 6 quid, golden gamble a fiver would you stump up for it?...for the cause?.....I can understand ya mentality psf but do ya think the sales of shirts would boost if we paid something like £25? more affordable imo

If it was a tenner a pint I wouldn't even enter the ground biggrin.gif

Think I agree with you Sportbilly, just because we support the club it shouldn't mean we are expected to pay for sub standard stuff "because its helping the club" for that reason alone.

I wonder how much it actually costs to produce the shirts in a batch? Can't be much more than £30 for an adult.

i was trying to compare summat.....all i could think was if my chippy(who i think sell lovely fish) was to start selling sub-standard fish, then pump up the price to a tenner for F&C, I wouldn't keep buying them just to help the chippy's cause, I would still use it, I just wouldn't buy the fish......am I making sense here? I have been on days lol wacko.gif

When I ran the Buccaneers and I got the mascot shirts at roughly cost price, you were talking about mid £20 price range for adults and kids, very little difference in price.

Yep, crystal clear!

There's nowt wrong with the club making a profit on the clobber but if the quality is shiiite folk can't be expected to buy it just because "its helping fev" or whatever.

I can see your point however the thing with a shirt is it has a much longer life than any of the above, and costs alot more to produce.

You may be right that the club would sell a lot more shirts for £25 but would they make more money?

It might sell more shirts but it would make less profit. If they really wanted to maximise profit they would put the price UP.
100 shirts @ £40 = £400
90 shirts @ £50 = £450

If we went back to the quality of the Kooga shirt then I for one would pay £50.00, as it is the last couple of shirts have been very poor quality and would rather do without, so thatís no profit at all from me, sometimes you have to listen to the customer and by the sounds of it a lot of supporters are in the same opinion with regards to the quality.
