Everton have released the Third kit for the 2023-24 season.

The third kit is a pinstriped design with contrasting grey tones, white base and traditional Everton blue. Grey shorts compliment the kit, with blue and white chevrons, plus grey socks with a blue chevron trim.

Once again, the club's badge has been replaced by a simplified Prince Rupert's Tower icon logo.

The new third kit is out now and available to buy at https://evertondirect.evertonfc.com

Just said the exact same thing to my wife, Frank, lol,

I wish someone from the Fans Advisory Board would tell the club to stop using the crap version of Rupert's Tower on everything (looks like a bullet) as well and stick to the badge.

Changing the badge is a no-no!

Trying to test the waters of the supporters resolve, it's our club regardless of this fake corrupt money that is currently at the helm!

I will not purchase at all, until our true badge is in place.

I don't think it's crap, Wayne. I rather like it, but think it's more suitable for use on leisure-wear than on actual kits. There I agree with you that they should stick to the proper Club badge.

Nice, but no badge so won’t buy it

I like it and I quite like the tower on its own. However, I won't buy a shirt with Stake slapped all over it.

I like it, I'll buy it and I'll give it five!

Who was famous for these words?

Seriously very smart!

I think this is a subtle attempt to introduce a new badge by stealth.

Put it on the 3rd kit each year. People get used to seeing the badge. Assess how many negatives v positives about badge.

Eventually put it on away kit too leaving just the home. Then put it to a vote.

I think we could do with updating the badge but going more old-school.

I love it, including the badge. If it wasn't for the horrible Stake on the front I'd wear it.

The kit is fine, nice enough.

The badge is the issue. Normally I'm against this kind of change, but I see this as making sense. I'd never advocate changing the proper badge, but having a simple, easily identifiable logo as well is actually a good thing for growing the club brand.

Just as Nike own the ‘swoosh' shape and Adidas ‘own' three stripes, Everton can ‘own' a really simple geometric shape and get their brand around the world and into people's consciousnesses more easily.

As a fan base, we complain that the club don't do clever things like this, so I don't think we should complain when they do.

The badge debate always intrigues me.

Until the 90s, we rarely wore a version of the official club crest, so it doesn't bother me too much.

Outrage when we had that Nike version.

In the 80s, we wore a crest that had no direct reflection on the official crest.

The 70s classic and simplistic "EFC" on a slant. Give me that every day. That would be iconic.

I personally like the modern representation of Prince Rupert's tower.

Those who know will understand what it means.

It's a decent kit but why do we even need a 3rd kit? I suppose I know the answer to that... We've got bigger things to worry about than a 3rd kit and a redesigned badge. The fact that we need to witness the likes of Michael Keane wearing this is the bigger concern for me.

Its not a badge, it's a logo - though why is another matter.
Dan Nulty

I'm not bothered about the badge either way. We have a long history of shorts without the full crest on. I just won't buy anything woth a gambling company plastered all over it. The scourge of society.

The badge, sorry logo, sorry bullet, doesn't bother me, as Danny mentioned I've had loads of kits from back in the day when the official crest wasn't used. What I'm more bothered about is that it looks like one of those cheap plastic door inserts in me nan's house

I love this kit. Modernized interpretation, sharp as heck.

I'm always on the bright side of Everton life, an unashamed erm happy clapper, but that kit (not saying "this" as this makes it sound more sort of personal and possessive) is fecking shocking, although Luton, Kidderminster Harriers, or Newport County would look good in it.

If it has white shorts - I can't look - we will not score in it. Players will become suddenly ugly in it, the "organs of increase" will "dry up" (love a King Lear reference), and Jimmy Martin will be turning in his retirement (fantastic interview by the way, heartwarming).

I can't even think of my beloved Neal Maupay with it on. It will make him look like a third-rate striker who hasn't scored a goal for nearly a year.

"And you go home, and you cry, and you want to die".

I like it. It would be better with the original badge though as many already mentioned

Are we trying to disguise ourself as Man City to scare opponents into submission?

And haven't the board learnt the lesson from the previous release of the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse inspired badge?

Brian Williams

If it didn't have the Stake logo on it it'd look really good IMHO.
Paul Ferry

That collar is beyond words. I can't see in that light to be sure, but please tell me the left sleeve is not in white.

It does look "greyish". But grey? What a dull, dreary, drab, dishwater, gloomy, rainy day, resigned colour. At least something day-glo could be inspirational and get noticed.

This dirty towel looks like a relegation scrap.

If it's a logo why choose a logo that looks like a condom?

Is it subliminal messaging that we're fcuked?

Darryl Ritchie
26 Posted 30/08/2023 at 16:36:52
At least it doesn't have collar.

Peter @ 3,

agree - leave the badge alone. I like the tower but as an addition/trim item.

My cynicism is such that I predicted this to a friend the first time the tower appeared on the first team shirt. Little is left that isn't subjected to the ongoing change culture, and it's often done in the same old creeping way, so Andy @ 9 is likely correct.

The broad design, I like (from only this one pic so far). Not that we have ever needed or would need a third kit.

Paul F @ 20 - hang in there, Lad. You'll feel better after the first win.

Paul Ferry

Will do Will.

The "collar" looks like a blind man stitched it, couldn't they have gotten it to meet up symmetrically?
Mike Gaynes

Eric, the collar is straight. The player is lopsided.

I like it,in fact all three shirts this season are fine,as a collector of Blues shirts,I'll be buying all three...when the prices come down like!

Mike #30, a problem we've been having for years!

They could have put a couple of wreaths under the tower and then we would have had a real looker.
Jeff Spiers
34 Posted 30/08/2023 at 17:42:20
Stick to the badge we grew with.
Billy Bradshaw
35 Posted 30/08/2023 at 18:11:58
Looks good especially without the two big white flaps that they call a collar on the new home kit.
Paul Smith
36 Posted 30/08/2023 at 18:48:06
Lovely. So much better than that awful first kit with ridiculous collars. It shows we can produce a stylish little number.

Apparently based on the 1986 Denmark World Cup wearing team,I also liken it to the silver kit of 84/85.
It's a nice kit but shame the badge isn't normal or fans can't buy it without the huge gambling sponsor on it. I honestly believe fans shouldn't be used as advertising boards (and pay for it).

What's wrong with grey? I'm grey from the toes up.

Very nice imo, shame we will only wear it once or twice – a third kit is a con to fans.
David McMullen

I think the kit is great, just need to restore our badge to it.

It's ok. I like the classic / retro look but the grey doesn't do anything for it.

Replace grey with green and it would be lovely.
