Does anyone know if you can buy the club branded gilet that UE wore to the press conference today? Cant see it on the club store anywhere, unless I’m being thick

Watching a bit of the Windies - England one day cricket & note the Windies have moved from Castore for Macron - https://www.cricketworld.com/cwi-unveils-macron-as-new-technical-partner-official-team-kit-supplier-for-west-indies-teams/91242.htm

However, going down a Google wormhole this report appears Castore did the ditching in an attempt to shrink their portfolio based on new investment.  Hopefully we help them shrink it further - https://www.msn.com/en-us/money/savingandinvesting/castore-nets-145m-in-raine-led-investment-round/ar-AA1kOdAi

Dan Bardell (whoever he is?) and Jacob Tanswell on the latest 1874 podcast have confirmed that we have a new shirt manufacturer for next season to replace Castore, and that the shirts are in development.

I was working in Brindley Place when that kit was launched and I've got some (not very good) photos from behind the stage.

I went to that with a well-known local ‘author’.

A big brand apparently. I posted this on the first vaguely relevant thread I saw, but this one would have been a better choice. Sorry mods and everyone.

Where did they say it was a big brand?

I saw the podcast and they said its one to be excited about but also that it was a new brand.

If it's not one of the big four then it'll be a disappointment. To be a big club you need to look like one and that means a top brand making your kits.

Yeah, possibly. They said we’d be excited by it, and perhaps I assumed the rest. We’ll see of course.

Edit: Tanswell “a new, big brand”.

Bardell: “one that fans will absolutely love”.

The only big brand I can think of that's also new is Gymshark.

But would that excite the fans?

Maybe the younger ones who are more familiar with Gymshark.

New to us, and big, was how I interpreted it.

The bloke who started Gymshark is a billionaire Villa fan.

I doubt it’s them though.

Bardell also said that he knows someone who’s seen it and it’s ‘unbelievable’ (said in a positive way) but ‘the badge isn’t great’. (He slagged the badge earlier in the pod).
