Anyone have an idea why kitbag.com is offering the home kit for less? Printing Price is less, delivery charge is less. Is it a reliable site or is it too good to be true?

edit: Anyone dealt with kitbag.com?

Do you remember that? That was a joke, and back then there was no evidence, but right now you guys will expect something new, but I will laugh at you, because the new kit will be that one.

^^^^^^^

Bookmarked

Just wait until next monday. I know those guys from todosobrecamisetas and they never get it wrong.

Time to get the bookmark out.

I'm a bit surprised though, I thought they were supposed to reveal it on 15th May or smth. But I must say the kit looks nice, not better than this year's, but still nice. At least the dark ages of kits of 2008-2011 seem to be over now. They've finally realized the less the better. Could have done with a little less white, but it's no biggy.

Kitbag.com run our megastore. Brilliant website, can't recommend them highly enough. Chelsea Megastore charges commission, basically.

Adidas have apparently claimed those black and white shirts are the training ones, not the actual kits.

Those 2 fellas was talking about those 2 shirts before Adidas came in and said it's not the away and 3rd kits.

I don't think so. If you look closely the black one has the patch in fabric sewn on. The training kits usually have the patch in plastic either ironed or printed on.

No, the other kit as a black and white copy of the new blue jersey.

Looks like I'll be buying both of our shirts this season then if that away one is to be believed. Definitely opting for a long sleeved home shirt this time around though - absolutely gorgeous.

They use replica prints instead of the authentic EPL ones.

I can never recall which one is which... are the "authentic" ones the thick, lextra ones? If so, I prefer the replica ones! I'm pretty sure all megastore-issue shirts these days are done with the thin plastic lettering, though...

Senscilia is the old Lextra type, felt numbering. Last's longer and looks better IMO.

PU is the plastic/rubber type numbering that wears away with too much wear.

Photos of the new kit at the Bridge:

The blue is considerably lighter than the current kit's shade. In bright light, the vertical stripes are quite visible as well. The two-tone blue looks fantastic. The goalie kit is really, really bright, but again an outstanding effort from adidas.

Looks like EPL is going to change the material for the authentic printing.

Like you said the current authentic printing is called SensCilia, the new one is called PS-Pro.

I hate the current SensCilia btw, it's so thick and it's very uncomfortable to wear.

Free Europa League patches in the Megastore.

Does anyone actually WANT an Europa League patch on the jersey? :ph34r:

Get it as a gift for your Spurs and Liverpool friends, make sure you give them a receipt so they know you spent fuck all for it too.

Yes, that's correct. The Fulham shop only uses the thick felt-like ones. Chelsea Mega Store uses the thin plastic lettering.
