I see Macron have done a few bespoke shirts with building silhouettes on them. Assuming our kit will be bespoke and not off the shelf, what about one with the pier on it (although I'm sure @Mad Cyril might come up some suggestions of some other iconic Southend buildings!)

Maybe someone creative could knock up an example!

As lovely as a bespoke kit would be, this seasons will be an off the peg number I'm afraid.

There must be a huge % profit over manufacture cost on kit, and if numbers made are judged correctly it ought to be a good earner for Macron and club.
Any guesses how many shirts we do sell a season?

The sales figures will show what sells? What colours are favoured etc?

I hate tops like that, just prefer a kit not a work of art. Just my preference of course lol

Usually you have to agree to buy a certain amount of each top (home and away) and clubs usually base that on what they think they can sell obviously. No idea what we sold last year but reckon a lot more than the season before lol

It would take a lot to top the last Nike kit we had. That was truly one of if not the worst kits we have ever had.
It can't even be classed as a kit, it was a training top and any fans that bought it got well and truly done in my opinion. Disgraceful kit.

Very rough, but you get the idea haha

I'd move the pier to the left so it starts from the hip and rotate it a bit clockwise. I'm not a kit designer by any stretch of the imagination but I'd imagine one of the first rules of kit design is to avoid having shapes like that emanating up from, shall we say, the lower abdomen area.

Is it the new shirt that those who donated get for free this year or something different?
