FAir play to them for getting these to market, but I would be very surprised If this is sanctioned by the club or Indeed Lord Lyon and are therefore  in breech of licensing laws.

Did you ever manage to produce the 97 replica that you had mocked up?

That's because it would be against the law. That company can't use that badge on their fake strips, they will find that our soon enough.

Been waiting on club approval since 2016.

The club license is held by Just Sport until the end of this season. Hopefully we can get back on track after that....just a bit disappointing that the club don’t have this flexibility, but on looking at the trouble Sevco are in with Sports Direct it’s perhaps understandable that the club don’t want to risk any breach of contract .

That's fair enough. The club would do well to commission a few of these retro shirts from you and sell officially through the shop. Clearly a demand there.

Yeah no bother killieboykfc.

I appreciate what your saying Al but our club has made no effort to ever bring anything like this to market. If they did they would make plenty of money from it. I’ve also bought both new tops this year. 

I can assure you I have made every effort to get a similar project live

I have  a signed agreement from Thomas Cook ( owners of At Mays brand) and been waiting on the club to authorise this. MJ to his credit actually gave this his full approval about 5 minutes before he stood down as chairman but failed to agree in writing.

Making illegal copies of anything is easy....making legal and approved replicas much more challenging

Exactly. That other mob are taking the mick and the money when reputable companies like the football club and yourself have to toe the line and suffer financially as a consequence. Buying their stuff only makes it worse. Good luck with your cup final strip venture, if that gets approved and manufactured you can count me in for one.

Aside from the copyright issues, I'm not sure the Tourhill Joinery shirt was ever made by Matchwinner. I know it's what historical kits says, but all the pictures I've seen have it without a manufacturers logo (away top does though). The Tourhill Joinery logo itself is in a different font and the collars and cuffs are wrong. Go nuts if you want to splash out £36 quid for one of those but it's poor before it has ever started.

I was pretty sure it was Umbro, but I might be wrong.

I think the Tourhill Joinery strip was made by a local clothing manufacturer, not sportswear. 

“Something & Something” - I can’t remember. Somebody might. 

Lyle & Scott maybe?

In the old squad photo it looks like there is no branding on the hoops, but the keeper's top looks like it has a Matchwinner logo.

I want to say Mitchell & Struthers, but I know that was a garden centre! 

 

Mitchell & Struthers is a landscaping contractor in the Bellsland Industrial estate.

They used to sponsor us at one time:

Al#1 apologies. I can see your frustration now if you have been trying to get a similar project off of the ground. When this is successful you will have 2 orders from me.

Update from my investigations today:

Mitchell & Struthers top came first and, at least the one the team wore, was Umbro. There are versions that were "manufacturerless," perhaps all replicas. I'd love to see the inside labels of this top if anyone has one. Umbro shirts were embroidered, replicas were printed/sublimated.

The Tourhill Joinery shirt came afterwards. It didn't have a manufacturers logo on the shirt, players or replica, but the inside tags show it was made by Matchwinner. The whole thing was printed/sublimated.

I think killie should launch a retro line in shirts but I haven't seen many away shirts from the 80s I remember seeing killie in a red and white one at Muirton park were rab Reilly scored

I've just bought a half price Killie top from the 2015/16 season....the Errea one, mostly white one with three blue stripes on the  chest.

Like it a lot, dare I say much better than the centenary home one that is bland and uninspiring imo.

 I like the stitched badge. Looks and feels  quality rather than the faded stick on effort on what was meant to be a special kit for a special  season.

Your right there Lroy as a said before was at Kilmarnock boys club then and the 1st team/ reserves had the new style umbro kits and we had the hand me downs late 70's early /80's kit. What i remember is that no versions of the new style Umbro hoops/all red kit ever went on sale in the town and was probably a deal where Umbro just made the kits for the 1st team with no  replicas, hence cheap copies.
