An earlier image we featured on this MailBag thread was an authentic-looking range but has been confirmed as a fantasy design by a fan.
With three different images circulating of a home shirt featuring thick bands at the ends of the sleeves, the smart money would be on that design being the one the players will wear next season.

Even more happy that Nike are our sponsors!
After a more traditional away kit this season I like the idea of something a bit more daring and exclusive next season - just nothing too garish!!

Bring back ye olde tradition of wearing away socks with the home shirt and shorts when we're playing away and our colours don't clash with the opposition. In the early 70s, that involved amber socks with blue shirt and white shorts. I rather liked that.
Personally, my favourite home kit was from 95, with grey and black trimmings to the basic blue and white.

Still, good to see the Nike logo on there. A real coup for Everton with the potential to raise our profile abroad.

Whether this is it or not, I hate that Everton shirts (sure many other club's supporters feel the same) are basically at the mercy of...I don't know, 'some designer'.
Yes it could be a designer who happens to be a blue, or is made aware of our history, but FAR more chance that it is some mute with a bit of metal through his conk, sticky-up hair and an 'ironic' t-shirt.

We'll launch this kit in about August with one of our stars who has chosen to stay. The blurb will contain the phrases:-
1) "The best kit in years"
2) "Technologically advanced material"
3) "Traditional royal blue"
4) "Pleased to have Nike as our partner"
Though not necessarily in that order and probably spoken by Elstone.
We'll all go out and buy it from the club store. It'll be the only place you'll be able to buy it.
We'll be drawn at home to one of the newly promoted teams.
We'll lose 1-0.

Think I'll carry on making do with my Black Watch jersey - doesn't half itch though and weighs a ton when it gets wet
Anway, what about the shorts?
"shorts don't matter! It's the pumping muscles underneath..."

I'm just glad there's a Nike tick on it - maybe just maybe our profile can be raised abroad?

I have no actually brilliantly thought out ideas, but as there are people who each year who buy what is basically a blue shirt with a tiny detail changed, maybe it's just something as simple as the season (eg: "Everton FC Premier League 2011/12").
Or, as our history is big for us, why doesn't someone look at anniversary seasons of..erm..suff and embroider events, records etc round the bottom of the shirt (where it's out of the way) eg: "Everton FC 2011/12 - 70 years since Dixie Dean's 60 goals".
Or maybe different Everton teams from different years embroidered around the bottom of the shirt (small but..er..classy like)
"Cup Winners 1966, West, Wright Wilson.." etc.
I don't know, I'm just lobbing stuff 'out there', but I'm sure an adult could figure out something.
That white sleeves thing really looks like someone said " look I know it looks fucking daft BUT....it hasn't been done before".
By the way (I've mentioned this before but will again) I think we (and the other remaining founder members) should wear FM (or 'Founder Members') on our shirt sleeves.
It would be a reminder to younger fans that the game didn't start with Sky, plus it would (probably) irritate The Victims as they couldn't have it.
Plus we'd occasionally get to feel important hearing commentators desperate to fill air-time mentioning it
"...and listen to that Goodison roar! Everton might not have the money to compete with the big spenders of the Premier League, but let's not forget they're a massive club with great support and as they so proudly wear on their shirts, founder members, one of the originals of.." etc blah.
I'll take anything that's going

Plain royal blue (circa NEC '94-95) with a white trim of no more than half an inch along any seam area but NOT across the main body of the shirt. All Amber 2nd kit and black and salmon third.

That's all that's needed to be said to any of the sad seed-sewing circle who MAY frequent this site/thread!

At first glance, I thought the arms were a bit daft but it's grown on me.
Next season, I hope we return to white socks and more white around the neck or color...... like the fat 70s color (just kidding).
606 Posted 29/04/2012 at 20:18:55
The same season we should wear white socks for the home kit so these should be the only 2 kits needed.

That said, I must admit the Italians never fail to have an attractive simple kit for every major competition.
I personally don't think you can be far wrong in having a blue kit which is simple, with only three things present: the team's badge goes without saying, their logo, and the club's sponsor.
I quite like this shirt, apart from the sleeves; I also think it will give me an added incentive to keep fit as it looks snug.

It's exactly the same as Brazil's & Arsenal's new kits.
