  1. Chelsea Kits thread

    Yeah, I got a LS Hazard of that away kit. I agree. One of the best and classiest in years. I ended up picking up a SS navy blue training one too. Just love those stripes across the chest.
  2. Chelsea Kits thread

    I agree. It's not too bad. But those boots... I've come to expect these crazy third kits. Two years ago we looked like Wolverine! So, a sound wave is a bit more tame. Don't think I'll get it, but still is a futuristic look. Love the Navy. I might consider getting the shirt if the audio wave was actually the sound wave from a Chelsea chant. But I'm sure Adidas didn't want to work that hard on the design.

    Wow. What else shall we talk about in a thread dedicated to our new kits? Do you want to talk about our wives or property we own? Shall we discuss our careers or personal sporting acheivements? Man, this community seems to be quite unfriendly. "Hey everybody, welcome to the Chelsea FC's supporters. Where we treat you like crap!" As far as new kits go... getting back on topic, I just ordered the 3/4 pants to match my home shirt. I usually get the official shorts, but liked how the 3/4 pants fit and saw that it looked like the home colored ones had pockets. I'll let you know what I think when they arrive!
  4. Chelsea Kits thread

    Yes. It does. It's preseason and I'm watching videos of my club wearing this ugly (IMHO) training gear and this is where we go to talk about it. That's why this thread exists. To talk about the new Adidas kits.
  5. Chelsea Kits thread

    Yup. The training gear this year stinks. I just bought some discounted training pants/shorts/shirts from last year because it actually looked classy.
  6. Chelsea Kits thread

    I do like this yellow away shirt, but personally I really loved last season's away white shirt with the red and blue stripes across it. Got me a Hazard LS. Great shirt!
  7. Chelsea Kits thread

    That's a great choice! My wife got me a home 14-15 Cahill shirt too. Love it. Wore it when he was playing in the WC. Probably going to get a Terry away kit later this year, unless they come out with a really sweet third kit. Terry either way though. Got Lampard last year. So got to get Terry this year!
  8. Chelsea Kits thread

    I might ask for a Cech red kit for Christmas if he's still playing a lot. Depends on how good the away/third kits are. Blue one first though.
  9. Chelsea Kits thread

    Ha. I've got Frank blue and Hazard white from this season! I was thinking of getting Cahill or Ivanovic for next season. But might go Terry if we keep him for another year.

    Just got a Hazard long sleeve away shirt for Christmas. The BPL patches and lettering/numbering are totally different from my 13/14 Lampard home shirt. Both were ordered from the US Megastore, and both didn't give any options as to what material the patches & lettering/numbering should be. My Lampard home shirt has BPL patches and lettering/numbering are all the same material: Lexstra, I think. It is kind of felt-like. My new Hazard jersey has BPL patches that I think are Senscilla. However the lettering/numbering is a very smooth slick plastic, and even smoother than the lettering/numbering on my 12/13 Mata shirt that I got at the megastore at the Bridge (bumpy plastic). So why are they different? Does it have anything to do with Away vs. Home?
  11. Chelsea Kits thread

    I definitely agree that this years kit is comfortable! Feels way better than any of my other jerseys. The only one that comes close is my Swindon Town kit from last year. Adidas did a great Job with that one too.
  12. Chelsea Kits thread

    Just got my techfit kit in from an ebay seller. Looks awesome! Just have a couple questions. Are you disappointed that the seams at the bottom aren't as well done as last year's, like the photos here: http://www.chelseamegastoreasia.com/stores/products/product.aspx?catid=305&productid=4550&product=Chelsea+Home+Authentic+Techfit+Jersey+2011%2F12 Also, have you had your letters or logo come off on any of your techfits? I'm surprised the logo isn't sewn on like last years, as well as the adidas logo. Anyway, can't wait to put this on when we head to the pub next weekend for the match!
  13. Chelsea Kits thread

    Well crap. I would've ordered my techfit from them so I could have gotten badges and name/number... But I already got it off eBay without that stuff. I'll definitely use ezfootballshop from now on though!
  14. Chelsea Kits thread

    Yup. eBay is where I had to go to purchase a techfit kit. And man, I hope it's worth it! Also had to get the Home shorts off eBay too beacuse the USA megastore doesn't have anything! So weird that I can't get my size there, but might be able to drive an hour away and pick up replica kits and shorts... If I didn't see that sweet photo collection of Ryan's new techfit, I'd have no idea it existed. So my wife can now thank you for that bill
  15. Chelsea Kits thread

    Whoa. You're right. I just tried to order from the Asia Megastore and they don't ship to the States. That sucks. I don't know anyone over there, let alone someone well enough to ship them a kit! I wonder why the US Megastore doesn't carry the techfit. I mean, it won't even let me order the replica home kit in my size right now online! And all I want to do is give them my money... Sad. Well, off to ebay. I was really hoping for techfit with patches. Oh well.
