Looks like a Cotton Traders effort I have in my drawer! Castro era? Hmmmmm I could be back in fashion.

I like to think of it as a nod to Seru Rabeni’s era.

1. Leave it until after all the other clubs, when people are a bit fed up waiting and no longer particularly care one way or another.

2. Announce it, and strike while the iron is hot by ensuring that people can't buy, or even pre-order for another month.

I see they are already doing some of the staff kit, I'm not personally convinced all their Exeter kits have been very same-y and not brilliant design.

Not for me.

My kit is supplied by Samurai, and I can categorically say all of it especially the leisure wear is some of the worst kit out there.

Nike don’t want to do any more rugby stuff outside those already contracted

Well I would not bet against Samurai as being the kit supplier for next season.

My first picks would be Under Armour or Canterbury, always been impressed by their stuff and quality. Adidas also wouldn’t be bad but don’t think rugby is their gig.

For what it’s worth Nike do very little rugby gear it’s not their market.
Adidas do the All Blacks can’t think of who else.
If either of these do did the kit you would be looking at a minimum of 20% price rise for fan kit, the BMW factor, then watch the brown stuff hit the whirly thing.
Samurai are a more traditional rugby supplier, on the occasions I have had to buy their kit for personal or club use I have found it to be well priced and good quality .
All imo of course

Well not sure about currently but Adidas certainly has been a kit supplier to Hairy Queens.

Adidas make most of the NZ super 15(?) teams kits if not all of them and Harlequins kit as well.
They also make the Lions kits if I remember correctly.
RRP of our replicar jersey is £60 Adidas Quins ones are £65. But I reckon the quality would a way better.
I like the current kit design, even the change shirt, and really wanted to buy a home shirt but the quality is poor as they can't even get the hoops to line up on the arms, which just shows they are cheaply knocked together.
Canterbury, under armour both make good kit, if samurai can produce good design with God quality then I'd buy it.
