All rounder teamwear
« on: January 02, 2019, 03:43:05 PM »

Anyone received any teamwear from all rounder recently? I noticed as I went to order some of my clubs gear it said printed badge where it used to say embroidered.  So seems they have changed from embroidery to printing on team badges just wondering what the quality is like?

Previous printed teamwear I have had has been nowhere near the quality of embroidery.

We switched to them last season but we didn't order a lot of kit as we releasing new playing kit for this season.  The stuff that was ordered came with embroidered badges but I have just had a check at this year's catalogue and it seems they halve snuck in this change hoping that no one would notice.

Personally i have found their customer service dreadful so far and their prices are the most expensive I have seen.  I wasn't in favour of moving to them - committee vote - but I can see it being quite a short relationship at this rate.

I will speak to our account manager - not that this often helps as he can't usually be bothered to reply - and see what they say

avoid them like the plague, sent my entire last delivery back as all the 5 tops I ordered came up a different measurement despite being the same size on the label (all adidas)

when I phoned them they said they were all a different fit but refused to help or credit. they still have the tops and I have no credit

Weve used them in the past.

Adidas playing kit was good quality and embroidered badges were also good. 

Turnaround times were slow, prices were high and customer service was poor to non-existent.

Ordered 2 pairs of playing trousers and a pair of tracksuit bottoms in their sale.  Club badge is now printed rather than embroidered and looks far more cheap and nasty. 

We, as a club dont order our shirts from Allrounder anymore but lads can order trousers, jumpers etc from the club shop we set up.

On the last 2 occasions Ive bought Adidas playing shirts from the cheapest place I could source them and then got them printed up from various local printers.

I've used them for three clubs. Adidas stuff is good kit, but the training kit range is lacking a long sleeved shirt. Spoke with them about this but there are no plans to include it any time soon. Turn around can be snail paced.

Customer service can be dubious, but the only time they messed my order up (sent a small shirt embroidered rather than medium) they got it sorted once we told them, and the contacted me about the top I ordered on black Friday being out of stock so changing it for the new range which now makes me wonder if it is a screen printed logo rather than embroidered.

All Rounder confirmed this morning that all the kit now comes with printed rather than embroidered club badges.  Obviously tries to sneak this out and hoping existing customers wouldn't notice until it was too late.  Complete shower of a company

The same happened when Kalibazer went to Masuri. They used to embroider the badges, now they sublimate them into the shirt.

Personally I prefer the badges to be sewn in, anything else just looks cheap and tacky

I'd been thinking about suggesting Chalfont move to either Shrey or Icon as the teamwear kit looks great from both. Having printed logos will look tacky, not a fan.
Ansty have moved to a more local company ahead of next season already.

It's almost worth getting the shirts in blank and getting a local company to embroider the badges for you en mass.  Would almost certainly save you money.  Do none of the forum sponsors offer a teamwear service?  Given all the feedback in this thread, and countless others, they would have a blueprint to provide a perfect service should they wish to do so.

I work with embroidery and printed logos. Embroidery is still favoured by most but the new printed logos are much better than they used to be and I actually prefer them, as they look more modern, not as heavy/no backing on the inside and you get much better detail. Each to their own tho. Have had mixed experience with Allrounder and my club now only use them for our tracksuits

I had some traditional caps done by uzi sports - top class and very transparent communication (large array of team ware including bags I believe)

The appeal of the 'club shop' model is that each individual player can place their own order directly rather than the club having to deal with the admin burden of having to process a bulk order on behalf of every player who wants kit.  It is a big improvement in my view, and when we first used Kalibazar for this service, everything worked well.  The problems seem to come when companies try to scale up their teamwear business as most players want to order their kit in March and April and the companies can't turn orders around quick enough

Owner of All Rounder by all accounts is a complete bell end. Not heard anyone have anything positive to say about him, and that's including team mates etc
