Will you please play in Royal Blue? This is our colour, not dark blue or light blue just royal blue and white.
Recent away kits such as Banana yellow, Grey, Black, why all these charges, why can we not have the Amber and royal Blue back a winning kit.
Too much change and too much profiteering. Can we just keep our traditional Royal Blue and white for home, and Amber and Royal Blue for away?

One of the selling points of partnering with Umbro was that we were supposed to be getting treated to Umbro's strategy for focusing on heritage. To date we have had half hearted attempts at trying to blend the old with the new round collars, yellow and white away kits, a nod to silver with this year's away shorts. If you want to see this working correctly take a look at Southampton's new home kit designed by Under Armour retro but up-to-date version of their mid 80s kit.
We are evidently behind the top six clubs in the Premier League in terms of merchandise partners. Chelsea (switch from Adidas to Nike) Spurs (switch from Under Armour to Nike) Man United (Adidas), Man City (Nike), Arsenal (Puma) and Liverpool (New Balance) the latter two more to do with lucrative endorsements.
In terms of our colours Royal Blue Shirt, white shorts, white socks. Change White shirts, black shorts, black socks. Third kit should be amber or salmon pink to reflect the Club's heritage.

I'd personally agree about the colours but would like to add do we need 3 new kits every year?
Why can we not stop fleecing the fans and only have a new kit every other year? 1st year home kit; 2nd year away kit 3rd year home kit and so on.
As fans, do we really need 3 new kits every year?

Umbro are amateur at best. The shirt designs are shite let's be honest.

Same with the away strip – why couldn't it be yellow tops with blue diamonds running down sleeves and blue shorts with the yellow diamonds and not some kacky strip that looks like a new start-up team and not a traditional team like Everton.
We don't need glitz – we have the Everton name and tradition.

It would be popular in E4 and fuck all elsewhere.
Street local cred. And zilch sales.

Take a look at any photos of Lukaku in our shirt and people knew instantly it was Everton not like this wishy-washy Man City / Coventry City colours rubbish they are wearing now.

Maybe I'm old fashioned but just go back to the mid 60s and copy the basic home and away strips, Royal blue and white, Amber and
black dark blue.

I think Umbro have been pretty good up until this season's effort which looks like a training top. A shit training top!

I, like most Evertonians, want to see my team in blue shirts and white shorts, and only see a change kit when there is a clash of colour.
We wouldn't dream of playing across the park in the derby in anything other than blue and white. So why do we use a change strip for visits to Bournemouth or Arsenal?
As an ex rugby player and referee, I was used to teams being told to change their published kit only if the referee felt there would be confusion. That is why in rugby the tradition is for the home team to change, the away side only had to bring one set.
I am not a dinosaur. I understand about the commercial aspect of the game. But I still believe that most fans want the traditional kit used wherever possible.
Unfortunately, until those with more money than sense stop buying all the replacement colours, the clubs will continue to fleece us.

The day we get points for kit design is the day I'll stop going.
