Good to see the worldwide fanbase being recognised.......any other Hibees in Japan apart from me?!

I'll be having one of those to absolutely confuse the locals!

Sam Stanton; the resemblence to the great man is obvious.

:agree:


Superdry can be seen on just about everyone these days (not me, too cool to be following trends :agree:) so it's probably quite a smart move by the club.

There's a matching white headband coming out soon with a rising sun motif. Symbolising fighting spirit.

Quite appropriate, really.

Nish had a Japanese follower who posted on the Bounce. Maybe the Club are trying to keep her onside?

Pretty sure the Japanese guy who has something to do with Shonan Hibees used to drink in Robbies a few years ago. He had a 5-a-side team in Japan with the same name I think.

I don't want to be seen to be putting a dampener on the initiative, but the Japanese translation isn't correct. It should read:

ここでは、そこにおよびあらゆる場所

BTW - I'm being 100% serious!

I was quite surpised when I learned they were, in fact, a British company....the whole "Japanese" thing being a marketing gimmick.

I'm going to be negative here. Here I go.

Those t-shirts are dreadful. When was the last time we produced a smart leisurewear t-shirt that didn't look cheap and rubbish? I'd like to see some smart tops with a touch of subtlelty about them, the good photoshop folks on here could probably knock up better stuff than the shop have in years.

Yes he did, great guy. There's a picture of the team behind the bar that he sent over at Christmas. I've got one of their t-shirts :greengrin

I do think the t-shirt has written the phrase in a bit of a complicated way and the I'm not sure about the kanji but isn't what you wrote there exactly the same as what's on the t-shirt?

More than happy to be corrected - it happens every day out here!

the whole clothing range in the hibs shop is rubbish.

I think those t-shirts are quite good and I think the club store range has come on leaps and bounds in recent years.

One of the major considerations in designing these kinds of garments is obviously the market. Who will buy them and why? I'm guessing that they are targeted at fans who want something to wear on matchdays as an alternative to the strip. Perhaps for when they are going straight to the game from work, have plans after or are watching a game in a pub where "colours" aren't permitted.

I haven't really seen this year's leisurewear range, but last year's was varied, with many simplified designs and didn't look "cheap and rubbish" IMO.

These t-shirts will sell and that's the main consideration for the sales and marketing people at Hibs.
