I guess it doesn't carry the same kudos as the previous sponsor because of their links with a big club. However, I believe it fits with what they are doing and trying to achieve at the CG and it's a local firm which is good.
The shirt looks smart and better than the past couple of seasons which I think have looked a bit 'chavvy'. The away shirt looks good as well. I wore my old black one as much as I did the home shirt last season.

Fancy a cruise as well. Any discount for season ticket holders!!? ;-)

Love the new kits!! The close-ups on the official page look even better. Subtle and classy home kit, and love the black for away. I actually quite like the new yellow & purple keeper kit as well, which is good as I play in goal and the STFC shirt is my standard training wear... which goes down horribly as most of my team mates are Reading fans :)

liking the new shirt although that extra stripe below the three shoulder stripes is a bit baffling.. I'll get over that...I like it when there's less interference with the traditional red shirt / white shorts / red socks so this works for me...I hope the away kit is a good dark blue in the same style... that would be my choice (I'm assuming the black shirt isn't it, like others are saying here)

This maybe Chinese whispers as it came via a friend of a friend of a friend but apparently Fraser Digby has hung up his training kit to put on his business suit and become commercial manager.

He has a lot of business contacts around Swindon so he may have played a part in getting this local company on board. I also have a feeling he is involved in kit supply so he may also have had some involvement in choosing the kit?

An improvement on recent seasons but i don't like the big white shoulder bars. The mock-up in the adver last week was much better design. Why oh why the club doesn't let fans vote on a short list of 3 or 4 designs is beyond me. If fans the choose the kit, more will buy it; seems a no-brainer to me. Plus its an opportunity to keep the PR going during the summer's quiet weeks at the club.

2 really cool shirts. Have to be careful with washing as i can see the lettering peeling off after a few washes. Found it useful with previous shirts that a rinse through with hand washing liquid works well. Keep them well away from fabric conditioner as that stuff will lift the lettering off.

I think a lot has to do with the chosen font for the lettering, but like some from above the black shirt does look more distinctive and so more appealing. Proud to wear either. Perhaps the black version should also go on sale as it looks like a decent revenue earner for the club, potentially.

Both shirts look good but not keen on the sponsor name (although their money is welcome)

I haven't been overkeen on some recent designs like last years Himalayas home shirt or the Boca Juniors away shirt before that.

Good that adidas are still making them, but a shame that Samsung, EA Sports and 442 are no longer with us. Not wanting to sound snobby but I've always much preferred shirts with a good brand like Adidas and well known sponsors than some local outfit. Some of the away teams shirts you see in their club shops look really poor quality with a nobody sponsor.

Hopefully there will be some polo shirts or other tops without the Imagine Cruising logo.
