Quality of the stuff is second to none the service on the other hand is jobby. Totally overwhelmed by the demands which is unacceptable really. I hope they learn quickly from this.

whats selfish about making sure it fits,but I suppose you being a big man butting people down, makes you happy carry on.and all I said was I haven’t heard about a refund

We went with a company like the because they could offer more than the big boys would ever sign up to.
A young ambitious start up company biting off more than they could chew is what broke that sports direct shackle.

So yes, disappointing.
But it was still the right thing to do despite many a disappointment.
I totally agree, the club would had the same concerns as we fans had in terms of stock etc. But everything outways SD.
It's a fantastic opportunity for Castore and I think they'll really go for it.

And I said folk buying stuff they don't need is low on their priorities right now (I'm sure they will fix it in a few days) .. not being big man? you only one mention figures. just don't get the moaning when you the one buying stock others potential could have got.. fair play if that's what you do.. :)

I thought Castore's initial online sale of our kit was a bad move and I said so at the time, not because a I didn't trust them but because I didn't trust getting all this done in the middle of a pandemic. Didn't one of the brothers say they were trying to do in 3 months what normally takes 18, mental.
I work in manufacture/construction and I have done right through the pandemic, you'd be amazed at what suddenly becomes unavailable or difficult to get, for many reasons, companies furloughed, backlog in delivery, held up at customs you name it. Coupled with the huge Rangers demand the company should just never have went there. That said If they drip fed us strips it would have never been enough for our support either. If the issue is only with 3% of the shipping then they practically pulled it off. I thoroughly believe these are teething problems made worse by difficult times and this will be a magnificent partnership. I'm a bit old for most of the merchandise but it looks quality

Ordered 1/7, no further update since then. £25 digital voucher received, came home to missed RM delivery.......Order redirected to Monday so all being well two home tops will be delivered then.
Despite no direct comms, assuming delivery arrives Monday, Castore have kind of redeemed themselves with the £25 voucher.
I’m sure lessons will be learned and next season will be so much better.

I queued for about 1 hour 15 minutes today. Queue was at Argylle House when I joined. Got bigger the longer I was in the queue.

Family members were 90 minutes today and left with a top(for me).My 6”5 brother in law left with nothing.The shortage of sizes was a disgrace.No home tops after Medium.,no training tops or 3rd top over 2Xl.Petty moaning but for folks to wait nearly 2 hours and leave with nothing needs sorted

Just a post about the caps.

I absolutely loved the 47brand hook up that elite sports put in place.

Can't help but think the castore caps looks absolutely shite in comparison. I'll admit I picked up a hat from elite sports in the sales a while back as they are just great quality caps.

47 brand is excellent, top notch brand for head gear. Make hats for all the American sports, MLB, NFL, NHL etc.

The have a line just now with the Carhartt brand that are belters, just pick your North American team

Just because Castore call themselves a ‘premium’ sporting brand doesn’t actually mean they are premium. It’s just there own way of talking themselves up. The training gear I got is nice but the Rangers badge and castore logo are all just stuck on, rather than embroidered not a very premium finished product for a premium brand at a premium price.
So you're saying it's not premium quality stuff because the badge and logo aren't embroidered?

It’s a bit poor that there’s stuff you can only get instore and not online and vice versa. We were in the store yesterday and they didn’t have any coaches quarters zip tops but they had sliders which aren’t available online. It’s strange because there might be bears who would want to buy accessories but don’t even know they exist because they can’t make it into the store.

I suppose if it survives the washing machine over the next few months then I’ll need to eat humble pie. Time will tell whether they really are a premium brand like they claim to be.

I done another online order yesterday and have got an e-mail to say that it will be delivered today by the post man.

That is good service.

I bought 2 pairs of training shorts from castore last year & the logo is printed on. They’ve been washed loads of times & they still look brand new.

Was it worth the wait? Did the shop have plenty of stock of everything.
I want the 3 kits in age 4/5 but I'm not waiting in a 90 minute Queue if there's none

Was worth it for me as I was only buying for myself and I was after training gear and leisure wear. There was a good stock of adults leisure wear and a fairly decent stock of adult training gear - the coaches black range was very well stocked.
3rd kit seemed to be well stocked from kids through to adults. Didnt see many home kits at all, Away kit slightly more stock. Plenty of goalie shirts in what looked like all sizes. They did have a good stock of what looked like a bespoke kids training top, was navy blue with orange badge, logo and flashing, dont think this one was previously on the website. I got in about 1pm and the queue was getting bigger and bigger after I joined it. Not sure what stock levels will be like today though.
