Morning all.

Reckon most of you have seen our illustrious President modelling the brand new Connacht Clan fleece over on Facebook. To those that didn't, have a gander.

The fleeces are high quality, warm, and have pockets 'that can be operated with gloves'. Diom thinks this is important, but as I've never been able to hang onto a pair of gloves for more than a week I can't comment.

They'll be available from Clan events for the low low price of only €30! Fleeces can be dispatched via post for €30 plus P&P (which will be the cost the envelope and postage. No eBay style gouging here).

EDIT: We are also able to accept payment via paypal and bank transfer. Paypal will have a small surcharge of €1.50 due to the commission (we'd usually swallow that, but our margins on these are quite tight). Email me below if you're interested.

Let us know what you think!

They are nice AND green! Pic doesn't do them justice. Dark green I think, but I'm colourblind so I'll let someone else that's seen them in person make that call!

They are green, although it is a darker green than "Connacht green". Best we could find at the prices and order quantities that we could manage.

I like it. Not the standard Connacht green for sure, but a more day-to-day green. Good work guys. I'll be picking one up anyway.

Sorry if the colour is a bit military. It's hard to suit everyone as we cannot order multiple types and have to find something that someone somewhere is already producing. We don't have the clout to go directly to a manufacturer and get them to do a custom colour for us (unfortunately! :) ).

As for sizes last time we ordered a set of clothes we ended up selling very few XXL ones and relatively few XL, and we sold out of small and medium very quickly. So this time we said we would try and reflect what sold last time and get more medium.
Then we figured that we might sell more of the fleeces to adult males than we did last time so we readjusted... what we ended up with was:
5S, 8M, 12L, and 5 XL.

I haven't gotten measurements but I will take some time today and measure them out.

That said, if we get 30 orders of any sizes then we can make another order.

It's probably cheaper to rebrand the Clan logo and website to match the fleece's colour :unsure:

I find it hard to believe there are so many svelte Clanners. Although the XL brigade probably held off buying stuff because they (ahem, ok, we) need the cash for beer and chips.

I know it's thin ice/eggshells territory but a bit of cuddling up to Elvery's to get the clan gear available in and around The Sportsground would do a world of good for the Clan. I know a number of solid Connacht fans who didn't know the supporters club existed.

If this isn't too personal a question, what size was the one you tried on in the picture Diom? I reckon I'm that size!

RL: I'm a medium. Just for perspective I'm 5'10".

S_P. I will try and bring it over. I'm going to have yours and Andy's with me so I think that's me at capacity. We can mail them over too but will have to request reimbursement.

Ummm, yeah we went for those simply based on last time we sold stuff. A lot of people were buying them for their teens so didn't want to discount the small sizes either.
As for Elvery's we have made numerous enquiries about selling our stuff in their "shop" before but without success. Will try again though... no harm.

EDIT: Forgot the measurements. I have just had time to get two done. I'm not a tailor so please take all measurements as very approx.
How I measured: In straight lines based on the fleece being flat in front of me.

===Small===
+ Chest (from corner of one sleeve to the other): 42cm
+ Bottom of Neck to Bottom: 60cm
+ Sleeve from top of shoulder to cuff: 60cm.
+ Width at Bottom (laid flat so includes half the 'side' I suppose): 53cm

===Medium===
+ Chest: 48cm
+ Bottom of Neck To Hem: 61cm
+ Sleeve from top of shoulder to cuff: 61cm.
+ Width at Bottom: 56cm

BTW if anyone wants to try them on before hand, if you can make it as far as the Mervue Industrial Estate (where I work) then we can arrange for that. But we will have them at the bar probably at the next home match.
