Home shirt just arrived, order was placed on 30th of September. Received a bobble hat, mask and season ticket holder wallet too which I guess was for the delay.

Just like last seasons commemorative blue kit, its not really commemorative.
Wait till you see the 1892/93 shirt that’s being created for a website, now that is cool! ;)

The 1892/1893 Claret shirt.

Some may think it’s too plain but, for me, it’s pretty cool! 😎😁

Does anyone know what the shorts ? Burgundy or black and the socks design are for the new third kit?
All White, so it was mentioned on here.

Looks as though they were wearing black shorts on one of the pictures but difficult to be certain. It could have been burgundy which would have been appropriate. The socks can't be all white surely,if so how boring, surely they must have the historical colour trim at least at the top. It wouldn't surprise me if it is a boring all white, however, as whoever is involved with choosing the kit is either colour blind or has no imagination.

The pictures and video show the players in black tracksuit bottoms. No shorts were worn.

In the shed.
It’s not the kit to wear at home when the supporters are decked out in RED &. WHITE

What a totally pointless kit, and please no more home games not in red and white...
Especially when they have clearly misjudged demand for it as it is already sold out. If it is a money spinning exercise then it can't have spun that much money and if it is truly a commemorative thing then release it next year when people will wear it at games and it might have sold more.

I am afraid to say I really think this commercial side of the club is poorly run

It depends on your point of view, but if you sell all your stock and don't have surplus kicking around then that is not a failure.

Order five and call yourself a success then...

Then the shop needs to be better at assessing demand because they have missed an opportunity.

Still don't get the need for a 3rd kit at all apart from, maybe, Preston, Derby and Bournemouth away where you could wear white shorts & either top anyway....

....UNLESS you saw a way to make some money out of it, which they clearly did, otherwise they wouldn't have made it "commemorative".

I am sure I don't know all the facts, but this part of the business seems to me rather amateur and has done for a while

We needed a third kit for the premier league.

They've sold out and recently announced on ****ter they'll be restocking in time for Xmas. Whilst yes, they have fallen short with the initial outlay, maybe given the current climate they didn't want to commit too early and wanted to test out the market.

Still don't get the need for a 3rd kit at all apart from, maybe, Preston, Derby and Bournemouth away where you could wear white shorts & either top anyway....

As mentioned above, we needed it in place for the Prem.

....UNLESS you saw a way to make some money out of it, which they clearly did, otherwise they wouldn't have made it "commemorative".

Surely as a business we will always see opportunity to make some money? Most teams third kits are in some way "commemorative", look at some of the Prem ones as examples, they come up with some weird and wonderful ideas. Villa is a good example of this.

Please only play home games in red and white. I hope most fans agree. Anyway who decided to play in the white kit?

Fair enough

I work in sales and marketing, we generally ask our customers about their views on planned products to gauge demand, identify target segments of the market and adjust our messages to suit.

I am sure the club could find 100 willing volunteers who'd contribute their views occasionally.

Berkshire, Lboro was my uni!
The popularity also might be due to: loads of people here won’t have been spending their “spending money“ since March, pick any from worry/shielding/tight/no football/no petrol needed/no point.

So when something relatively neat like this 3rd shirt comes out, we go for it, anything that makes us feel closer to our club rather than a jittery ifollow picture every few days

What a shame we have chosen a third 'commemorative' all in white, like Leeds. The trim is a great idea and colourful, but why on earth white shorts (could have been burgundy) and plain white socks, which could have also had the historical and colourful trim. The club's management do so well with everything else, but why on earth are they so pathetic when it comes to choosing the kit.

Just read on twitter that the salmon kit was not only never worn by BFC but was never the rowing clubs colours so thw white kit is a nod to absolutely nothing.

That person on Twitter needs to do some research then. This is an excerpt from the Richmond & Twickenham Times. Note the comment underlined in red.......

Did our players think we were playing in blue today?

Brentford FC 1896. These were the colours when the Club won the Middlesex and London Senior Cups in season 1897/1898. 😎

Thanks to @itchybowwow for his brilliant work, again!

Just got an email from the club shop telling me that my third kit order will not be fulfilled, as it is out of stock. Then told to pre-order on the website for the December run...are they having a laugh? Fuming, as now I am going to be at the bottom of the list for December, despite making a successful order and payment on the 2nd! Oh Brentford.

Would you mind forwarding your email to feedback@bias.org.uk? We were told this wouldn't happen.
