    Frankly spending over £20 on shirt, shorts and socks seems a bit steep to me.

    £15 for a shirt - say a fiver for shorts, and a good negotiator should be able to get a pair of sock thrown in...

    You need to remember some distinct differences.

    With your society / association they buy approx 300 - 400 shirts (all the same). They have the quantity to be able to negotiate price.

    Here it is going to be a range of shirts that has a potential to be bought by thousands (if all members bought one) or fifty, if not many buy them.

    You also need to remember that by purchasing some kit you are helping the site, which is available yo everyone for free, without any annoying adverts or pop ups. Just built on what I can afford, and maintained by the same plus the generous donations of members.

    Next, look at the price of replica kits, at least £50 a shirt.

    These items will be good quality, much better than the Ram ones, those who already have Akuma shirts will be able to attest to this.

    Rob,

    Have you considered rounding up members of the site and shoving coal "up there" I'm sure you'll produce some diamonds and be able to cover all future costs

    My Society just ordered a bunch of Akuma kit.

    The only one quibble I have on our shorts is that if it pisses down with rain, they get a bit clingy, unlike the Koogas. Admiitedly, these shorts may be different.

    That to one side, I'm really happy with what we got.
