    Maybe as a result of the new sponsors adopting the yellow and black colours instead of their traditional logo colours, inspired a change from red shoulder stripes to alternate yellow/black stripes as well. That may also explain why the kit seems to be announced/on sale later this year than last year.

    Do we know when it'll be out or available to order? Thought it was pretty early last year.

    I was told by staff in the new shop in Intu that the new shirt would be available at the end of July.
    Seems a bit late for me.
    Think that would mean playing pre season friendlies in training/last seasons kit?

    That's pretty late. I'll be ordering mine for delivery so doubt I'll have in time for 10th August if much later.

    Can’t help but think that this is the kind of offbeat strip which relegation teams wear.

    Yes, it's going to be a striking organza dress in pink tulle, with matching pearls and a diamante collar necklace.

    The shoes are in brushed pigskin with gold clasps, by Maxwell of Bond Street.

    The hair is by Roger, and the whole ensemble is crowned by a spectacular display of Christmas orchids.

    Are you seriously trying to admit to your fellow Orns you didn’t take your souvenir flag home to be cherished and protected and preserved - so it can be handed down and proudly waved by your (great?) grandson at our next cup final defeat?

    I still wave mine whenever I sense something bad is about to happen.

    No, no, you wave it when something bad has ALREADY happened.

    We left ours behind but I am reclining on a cushion I half inched from a Kraftwerk gig.

    I was led to believe the delay is because the stripes on the shoulders were changed from red to black. A good thing if true, because the shirt looks so much better being just yellow & black

    It doesn't look particularly good. Not with solid black shorts especially. Very championship.

    Probably still buy one. Nice to show ones colours every once in a while when living in a foreign land. May look ok with my coral shorts!

    I take that to mean pre-orders from Wednesday (the calender emoji has Jul 17th as the date), and official release on the 26th.

    With the red shoulder stripes it really is nasty.

    Like the getup of a medieval court jester.

    Agreed. I think with black stripes it would have been manageable, but the red looks rubbish.

    Most of the other clubs had their kits released a month ago. Distinctly tinpot.
