I dont normally dis the club and the behind doors team as they all work hard and mostly deliver but this is ridiculous. Some people dont like pre ordering and im one. Some times XL fits sometimes XXL so I need to try on first.

They knew how msny shirts they sold last season and they know the percentage increase in Membership uptake from last season to this. That would have given an indication surely.

This is very poor by the club to have run out of the main sizes before the first home game had kicked off. They have lost my shirt money now and I will continue with the white away from last season.

Im sure others feel the same.

I normally buy an XL, tried on a L yesterday as that's there biggest size in stock and it fits! Not sure if they are slightly bigger but made up!

I went to the shop yesterday and was told 2 months before any more shirts came in. Surely they can get the shirt supplier to make them quicker


You should pre order like a lot of us do
Unless there's a way you can remove the shirt from your tablet and try it on ;)

I pre ordered an XL away and it was bloody tiny, phoned up and said they have no more away shirts so i reluctantly aggreed to bring in in yesterday and exchange it for an XXL home shirt, get there yesterday and all they have is a lorry load of medium and womans 16's.
They then had the audacity to ask me if i wanted to pre order for christmas.
1. I won't be pre ordering anything from that club ever again unless they have sample shirts to try on.
2. I don't want a full price shirt for half a season.
3. I along with many others yesterday queued up for refunds whilst the till for pre order book was, well pretty empty.

What makes it worse is exactly the same happened last year with the away shirts and they clearly have not learnt a thing.

It is pretty poor really. Bombard you with emails to buy stuff you can't try on because they've run out, then when you can get one it'll be some weird random sizing system that won't fit anyway.

Makes Matalan and Primark seem like Harrods ;)

Surely an XL home shirt should be the same size as an XL away shirt, otherwise what's the point of having a size system.

May as well mark them as smallish, mediumish & largish.

What does it really matter as long as they are paying the club the admission fee
More important issues at Home Park than what shirt a paying fan wears

People shouldn't need to. It's completely reasonable for someone to decide they want to buy an Argyle shirt at any stage of the season (certainly the first half of it at least) and expect to be able to rock up to the club shop and buy one there and then or, at worst, order one with a couple of weeks delivery time at most. This whole situation and the way that the Puma deal pans out each year seems quite bizarre to me. Essentially, these shirts have become special/limited edition items that can only be bought during short sales windows. I think the marketing material ought to be more upfront about this.

I have been buying Argyle Replica shirts from the club shop for over 30 Years

Always get them at the start of the season to avoid disappointment

The Club always advertise when they are available so I order them

Always exciting when a new kit is launched

Maybe it's Just Me !

Great to see Mitre Replica Footballs in the club shop today

Rachel and the team do a great job in the Argyle Superstore


So pre-order and...

Confused, you will be.
