Purple 3rd kit

Post by Currie14 »

My Daughter wants one but LUFC are sold out online 😢 Anyone know where I can get one?

I'm guessing it's marmite but I really like it and the fact we usually win in it probably helped sales!

I inquired with LUFC shop quite some time ago when I couldn't get the 3rd kit in a size Large, and was told there would be no more coming in. I told them that was sales suicide as I know it is in a fair demand and with the success we have playing in it they could sell a lot more. Not sure did they expect both the success of the team this season and the demand for a 3rd change kit.

I see a few pop up on resale sites like eBay but you have to be careful for both the usual caveats like dodgy sellers and that it isn't a knockoff kit. I got a legitimate centenary grey/pink kit from last season via eBay and paid about the same as club shop was selling at (definitely wanted this one as it marked the 100 years + promotion).

Do we mean the burgundy one? Reason I ask is that next season's 3rd kit is rumoured to be lilac (which is more purple than the current one)..........

My two penneth..........I don't dislike the current 3rd one because of the colour, I just hate the pixelated effect on the front. Would look better if it were like the back and sleeves all over............The green/navy one, however. :love: :ok:

This is the one I’d seen Durly........thing is you don’t know if these are just mock-ups or there is some merit in the rumour. I reckon they tend to leak out some detail just to see what the initial fan reaction is

..and yes that one is more purple than this season’s burgundy shirt

Not my cuppa tea either but then again my fashion sense isn't to be trusted!

Though I will keep it in mind if I want to go to a fancy dress party as a bottle of Comfort. :)

The Leeds one is a slightly lighter colour, more lilacy judging by those photos, more classy :)

I really like the colour, but I'm not so keen on the white collar, if it's like that. It's different enough that I'd want to get it though, as long as they do women's sizes.

I agree. There's another mock up on Waccoe with a navy, round collar and navy (or could be dark purple) shorts and it looks much better.

I like the current purple. I truly hope the lilac thing is just made up as it looks sickly :bear:

I think it's pretty much nailed on, I think. Been reported in a few places. The away one is supposedly similar to this season's blue, Arsenal away, only a slightly darker shade.
