That 12/13 kit of Chelsea was a one-off in celebration of London 2012, even Samsung got behind it.

Adding another colour because it separates from other teams is a shit idea.

That's really only a consequence from the addition, not the primary reason.

 

I think the main concern here is that people think that the gold has taken over the white. But ever since it has been introduced, I still think most outside the club see the white as the more dominant between the two colours because more important elements of the kit are white.

 

It's not like we're using the 14/15 away kit as our home kit all of a sudden.

Never mind the Gold there’s enough money in the PL to do away with the Sponsors on them.

I would say if the PL suddenly went sponsorless (on the kit, at least), we will see more white on the kit.

Yeah, I am. 

 

14/15 was the last time I believe we had the white shorts, and since then; the crest, shirt number and the King Power logo has been the largest source of white. It's very striking in comparison to the gold trimmings. Those elements do play a part in the identity of the kit. 

 

Look head on in any of our kits since 15/16, and you're going to notice the white parts long before any of the golden bits.

 

All third party advertising of Leicester also supports the blue & white with a hint of gold set. 

You said that it has "always been a trimming to the blue and white" - and that simply isn't true.

Don't have a problem with the gold, but I will not be buying it...and probably wouldn't wear it if I was bought one.  I still want this seasons grey & yellow away kit for fat b'stards.

Oh, I meant when it was first introduced in 13/14 I believe.

 

I'll have to admit it was a curious addition at the time.

Actually, no again. The 94 - 96 shirt had it - Urban Spaceman posted an image of it at the start of this thread. I loathed it back then. Also, we'd been blue shirts, shorts and socks since 92 I think, and I was very pleased to revert back to the blue and white in 1997. 

 

Gold shouldn't be anywhere remotely near an LCFC kit in my opinion. Looks kitsch too. Horrible.  

 

Blue and white.

I can see why people oppose it - it's not traditional. However, if that's all that matters, then really, shouldn't we still play in black with a sky blue sash?

 

I like the gold. Gold/amber/orange has been our third colour ever since the shirt had a fox on the badge in 1946. I'm sure the owners would have added gold even if this wasn't the case, but who cares? That's just a nice coincidence.

 

Besides, it goes very well with royal blue. Objectively.

 

I feel the same about blue shorts. I know they're not traditional, but again, royal blue isn't our original kit, either. I think the blue shorts look better, we always seem to win stuff in all blue, and I think it's more unique to us.

 

If you're not a fan, then try to be thankful we're not doing a Cardiff. It could be a lot worse.

I can take it or leave it.

 

I like the all blue kits and would prefer white trim but it makes me chuckle how wound up some people get about it.

We’re Blue and White and everyone knows it.

 

Excusing a kit colour being shoe horned in to replace another on the grounds of the Owners wish is a dangerous game.

I particularly liked the gold Premier League sleeve badges we had a couple of years ago. We should get those again.

This.
