New kit?

Are we having a new one this season? If so I would like to see an old rugby jersey type top in the club shop too. Similar to what I think Bath and Quins have done.

I would love a retro kit- I say so every year. Something like the old Cotton Oxford with the old badge.

There will almost certainly be something retro to celebrate the Wasps 150.

If they are being authentic it will be all cotton, black, with white collar.

It's highly unlikely to be cotton. Kit material technology has come a long way since cotton and I highly doubt under armour produce anything in the old style cotton.

I'm guessing it will still be high performance material but with a retro design

I would really like a leisure 'retro' version. Saying UA doesn't make stuff in cotton, well, there are plenty of factories still making old style shirts in cotton. When out at the HK Sevens a few years ago I found old style cotton versions on sale in street markets. I still have one, and it is very good quality. I do not find the new materials at all comfortable to wear on a daily basis, but I would wear a (roomy) cotton one. Proper stitched on sponsor logo patches, stitch on team badge, stitched on white square with team number (give me a 12 please).

There's no need for it to be made by UA if it is a Retro anniversary kit. Would it not be made as part of the leisure range?

Apologies, I thought we were talking about the playing kit this season and that's why I said it wouldn't be cotton. Of course there are leisure shirts that are still made of cotton and I'm pretty sure they are available form the club shop.
I'm really intrigued as to the design of this season's playing kit and looking forward to it. I've been a little apprehensive about he UA kits when they've been released, but have ended up loving them!

I'm confident the club and UA will produce a great shirt for this landmark season

Polo shirts, maybe, but I don't recall seeing any 'vintage' style heavy cotton rugby shirts. Something with some real quality, as opposed to the awful things that sell for about 10-20 on eBay and the likes.

I remember my old school 1st XV shirt lasting at least 10 years as a leisure shirt, and that was after me playing in it for 2 years!!

Just got an Israeli national team shirt. Normally a large and this is 2xl and looks like it may be trim. Now I'm done showing off, unlike most o quit liked last years and was tempted but held out in the hope this one would be special.

Not many kits out just yet, so can't see any reason for concern!

Would be good to do some big event like Exeter did, being the 150th anniversary and all.

I've always wondered why clubs don't release shirts for the last home game of the season (providing sponsors and manufacturers are known). Would be a financial boost for the summer where no rugby is played and kids would be out in them over the summer/on holidays etc!

Hopes high for a retro kit with old logo given all the 'Wasps 150' branding that's already about. I think Quins' kit from last season for their 150th is the benchmark for shirts now - I was very jealous of them.

Last year's kit was announced on July 22nd, and we're starting to see a few new shirts being announced this week so I imagine we could be seeing it sooner rather than later.

I suppose with the Singha 7s on 28/29th July, the release should be before then/timed to suit that event (unless they play in last years kit, which would be a surprise!)

Wasps twitter today confirming that we will have a new playing kit before the start of the 17/18 season. I assume that this means a new kit before the sevens.
