New Club Clothing - Initial Kit Order
Alex Hewins is looking to try and ascertain what the Club's initial order might be. There is a possibility that if the order is large enough, Kalas the supplier, may waive their design fee.
IT HAS BEEN DECIDED BY THE COMMITTEE THAT THE CLUB WILL PAY THE V.A.T. ON ONE ITEM OF CLOTHING PER MEMBER, ON THE INITIAL ORDER - DO NOT MISS OUT !
Accordingly, if you intend on buying kit in the first initial order, Alex requests that you contact him ( his email is in the 'Contact Us' panel ) with what you are likely to buy. This is not a commitment to buy, but a guage of our interest, to be able to give Kalas a ball-park figure.
The list of clothing, types of materials and prices provided by Kalas is extensive, ( there are 19 types of skinsuits available, each in two types of material ), so below is a precis the most popular items to give you an idea of prices.
Short Sleeved Shirts :- £29.00 to £50.00. Long Sleeved Shirts :- £42.00 to £62.50.
Windbreaker Jackets :- £37.50 - £58.00. Elite Membrane Jackets :- £67.00 to £81.50.
Shorts :- £33.50 to £56.00. Bib Shorts :- £38.50 to £75.00. Skin Suits :- £66.50 to £83.50.
If you want an excel file of the full price list, then email Alex and he will send it to you.
