Looks cheap, I don't buy replica shirts anyway but I can't see this being a popular seller, its crap

In reality how many adult shirts do we sell anyway? Maybe 500 a year?

"The kits have been produced by Wanderers in conjunction with Leeds-based Infinity Apparel who were carefully selected by the club due to their commitment in adhering to stringent ethical, environmental and employment standards including safe working conditions, living wages and ensuring that that no child labour is used in any part of the supply chain."

That's going to go down well with some on here....but good on them. 

And that is way more important than the design. Which to me looks fine apart from the logo - but any logo will more or less be a problem. 

Infinity Apparel are an offshoot of New Balance.

The kids shirts have the sponsors name on then?

Seems a while since that happened.

Yeah, because they're not gambling, beer or adult themed product-related

No problem with the kit, it’s fine, the sponsors worth 3.5 billion I’ll take some crumbs off his table and you never know he might just fancy a little flutter on BWFC. Welcome aboard Tom. 👍

Had time to think about it and youre spot on.

I'm not having a pop but are you sure about that or simply repeating what Iles said in his blog?

Doesn't seem to be any tie up between the two companies that I can find?

Infinity Apparel seem to be an offshoot of Infinity Incorporated, and that company is 75% or more owned by a Mr Darren Cohen. who again doesn't seem to have any link to New Balance either?

The only secured creditor for Infinity Incorporated is the bank.

There is a tenuous link between the two via John Moores University where New Balance works in partnership with them and Infinity Apparel supply the sportswear to the University but that's nothing like the same as saying IA is an offshoot on NB.

I think Infinity is simply a stand alone company in it's own right.

IA doesn't appear to be a clothing designer or manufacturer.

It would seem to me their method of operation is to source the clothing from abroad, bring it to Leeds and 'customise' it by printing or adding transfers to it, embroidering  it if the customer so requires, and relabelling it in accordance to UK requirements (the washing instruction tag).

I guess this enables them to be competitive on price, which in turn allows the purchaser to retail the goods at a high margin of profit or a discounted sale price to the consumer - and that's why they are being sold £10 cheaper than normal shirt prices.

The disadvantage I guess is being limited on choice as to what shirts IA can source rather than provide a design and manufacture facility themselves.

Everybody seems to win, IA provides finished goods in just six weeks, the club has a shirt, shirt sponsor is already onboard (PBP owns Home Bargains) and the fans are able to buy a new club shirt £10 less than they normally would.
