Subject: Macron Shop
Date Posted: 01 July 2020 at 1:12pm
I saw on Facebook today that the online Macron shop is selling Scarlets face masks.

I'd like to get some for my boys and I.

How do I get in touch with them given the physical store is closed? Are they good at responding?

Someone here may be able to answer if they have already bought and received a mask. My question is do they have a removable washable filter or is it just a piece of material?

Cheers

also seen they are selling new items which are last years cardiff rfc style items, and they are at full price. shocking to be honest as the cardiff rfc kit is reasonable price. polo shirts same design approx £30-40 difference. very poor

That's the one. As you can see there is no mention of a removable/washable filter.

Is there no chat function?

I do love a mask that's breathable see

Not sure these are things we should be trying to make a few bucks from right now.
O's did a decent job on outreach with theirs ( dirty Chips, u dirty mochyn)

Or at least if we are let's give them some attributes as well as being red and carrying a Scarlet logo ennit.

If its macron I wouldn't be surprised if it didn't fit properly and was poorly made. Also massively overpriced. Probably the worst thing we've done in recent years was linking up with them

After a chat with someone who knows better than me, 3 ply is what is recommended. Apparently we have been told not to buy medical grade as they are needed by the NHS etc. I admit I expected a pouch for a filter though as I have in mine.

Not a good advert for the Scarlets.
Someone senior in the Scarlets needs to kick a few backsides as this is on of the key public faces of the club.

Its weird as despite our views of them, they are clearly far from amateurs as they supply a vast numbers of teams from low level to international. 
They are an oddball though in they way their supply chain is based and seems so inflexible.

The product is the product, some love some hate.

Key for me is that they are not retailers,they are not even owner/manufacturers. They are just a buying house. I had some hope Italian design/flair would see us at least have something innovative...in fact the range is flat an unimaginative.

We have pretty much handed them the retail reigns for our brand, and that for 5 years. Pricing seems out of line with what people would expect to pay for a product, launch timing is a challenge, little commercial noise or advertising come from them and so on.

No one should do hand over their brand like this, never mind to someone with no expertise in controlling a brand they don't own, or in that retail space.

Does that suggest desperation by the club in awarding such a deal?

Really?  Bit spineless. He needs to adopt the Brian “ Pit Bull” Moore  Twitter approach to criticism “ it’s usually like he played - a sharp/ blunt and apt comment and a “ F off” 😂

My take is that it's easier to operate the shop as a 'concession' ( and just take a slice of the income).

I had warned people of the shoddy quality of Macron way back when we first got the news of this deal. Met with the usual ‘we are going to support our club and buy the merch...’ fair enough, each to their own.
My club stopped using macron after just a year, the next thing we see is the exact same tracksuit zip top (their basic track suit) on sale at the Scarlets for £55 when for our club it was £27 the only difference was the badge.
The sooner they are gone the better.

 Yes the Macron gear as been vastly overpriced at times,and there as been some cheesy gear .

      I have spend a fortune on the Macron merchandise at the Scarlets shop, I have not had one dodgy item in fairness and no had no problems.

     I am also supporting the Scarlets at end of the day, have always bought the gear ,and always will whoever the supplier is .

The rumour doing the rounds not so long ago was that we were entering into an agreement for Macron to be kitting out all regions and the WRU kit going forward. Hopefully not true but what i'd heard.

I got a jersey for myself and my kids. Some socks and baseball style hats. All was pretty good actually.

There's no imagination with the leisure range.

The new range looks like a rehash of last year's range.

And I think the jerseys are the worst we've ever had.

Looking forward to being able to spend money in the store again.

The first season's stuff was good (and the subsequent stock issues prove this - i.e. selling out of jerseys way before Christmas) and they've been a shambles ever since unfortunately.

How hard is it to design a nice jersey these days? The recent Macron stuff doesn't even come close to the old Rhino kits in terms of design or quality unfortunately.

Surprised to read the anti-Macron sentiment on here. My favourite Scarlets shirt ever is the 17/18 Macron one and it's the only one I went out and paid full price for .... the rest I usually get in the end of season sale. The only thing I'd say is that the printing is very fragile on some of the non-sublimated ads and they show more wear after each wash but the latest Macron ones have been better on that score. 

My top three Scarlets shirts are;
1. Macron 2017
2. Kooga 2007 Stradey Park Brown/Red Quarters
3. Kooga 2008 Heineken Cup version

The Macron Leisure gear whilst being badged off-the-shelf is always good quality too. Macron do lots of bespoke stuff for football clubs so I guess the option is there if it was commercially viable to do so?

I think the T-shirt shop in the market that makes things like ‘Ladz on tour - Ibiza 2019’ sell better quality.

Macron stuff is overpriced. If you look we have Cardiff Rfc designs which are £15 on their website for £45 on ours. We aren’t even with the main supplier just some jobs worth who blocks anyone on twitter who complains.

To be fair, having black and white as your colours does make selling into the leisure market easier. People are so odd when it comes to bright colours, look at the car colour choices you see - black, grey, silver, white, dark blue. People dont want to be noticed hence black and white will always be easy.

Some reasons which could explain that Wil are,

1. They were more successful than us on the pitch in the earlier days.
2. They were a new entity, so in the early years, few had their kit.
3. They share a shop with the Swans (and still do so), which could have triggered additional sales to footie fans. 
4. From a neutral's point of view, a black top is more forgiving, as is navy blue which we used to have.

Agree on all that...they also had linkage with Tesco to sell their product, and, although it pains me to say it, they had a superior brand and product offer in the first half of this last decade.

I had seen Ospreys selling their garb on discount retailer MandM direct. Might have been done through their supplier canterbury as there was Ireland and England merch their too. It would be a nice way of getting the old stuff out there.  Obscure jerseys both rugger and roundball sell out there very quick if they are priced right.

I've come across some pictures of a match from 1976, Llanelli v Harlequins, where we're wearing an adidas jersey where the collar and jersey colour are the same. It's a black and white photo, but I'm assuming the collar is red. I've never seen us in an adidas jersey which didn't have a white collar. Does this ring any bells?

It's in the PA Images online archive.

The new Scarlets Macron 'Jamesy' t shirt is being sold for £45.

Wil would likely be able to tell us when the printing of the sponsors logos gets done. Presumably this is something carried out locally, rather than run off the Macron production line months ahead of time.

Stock 'blanks' are usually made with the basic 'club' logos. Changes/new sponsors are added post make up, but usually at the factory.
Adding them locally can get messy and negates any claim against the manufacturer for faulty product.

Northampton Saints are revealing their new home Macron kit tomorrow. Understand we’re in the midst of a pandemic, but can’t help but feel we’re being sold short by Macron in every department.


Posted By: Mundoscarlet

Well, as a brand I think we're more well known than saints, so would hope not being sold short 


Posted By: Gate12

There's a few things to consider I suppose, as well as the impact of covid and staffing levels there may be a consideration for sponsors, if Northampton are using their new kit to finish off last season that'd be fine if they've got the same sponsors so ok to release early. We may be in a different position where we're going to play the rest of the 2019/20 season in the 2019/20 kit so might want to release the kit a bit later.

Just guessing but there may be more to it than just our relationship with Macron.

All personal opinion of course, but I find Canterbury and Samurai my favourites. Large means large (!) and they still sell the old style cotton shirts (although I’ve seen Macron do this too, aswell as polyester).

Adidas quality is great, but as with Macron you need to order a size up. 

I have a Montpellier Kappa shirt - cracking designs but again order a size up with Kappa.

Not sure what it is with rugby jerseys these days where there’s an insistence on not conforming to usual sizes.

Surely it's all going the way of an all-in, PRB-WRU deal for regions and nation at some point?

Canterbury stuff is always good quality, lacks the trendy designs but that hardly matters as we plaster our 100 sponsors all over it and lets face it that yellow, blue, grey combo was hideous last season. 
I have a GB rugby league from Hummel and that is nice fitting and a clean design. There are plenty of good options out there. 
Oh to have a kit like best selling clubs...

2018/19 Ceredigion
2019/20 Pembrokeshire
2020/21 Carmarthenshire?

All personal opinion of course, but I find Canterbury and Samurai my favourites. Large means large (!) and they still sell the old style cotton shirts (although I’ve seen Macron do this too, aswell as polyester).

Kappa have done some lovely top 14 jerseys over the past few years.

I’m not a fan of Macron but credit where due, the new Northampton shirt is one of their better ones : https://www.northamptonsaints.co.uk/news/northampton-saints-launch-2020-21-home-strip" rel="nofollow -  https://www.northamptonsaints.co.uk/news/northampton-saints-launch-2020-21-home-strip

I still think we need to go back to collars, even if they are smaller ones

I forgot about that. I remember Ceredigion when it came out, so I assume they did Pembs this (delayed) season?

macron can be very overpriced. however during lockdown,macron did an online deal,where they were giving up to 40% off,this current season's merchandise. i got myself 2 polo shirts and a t.shirt for £44 !!. would have been over £130 normal price. bargain.

Their area boss I find embarrassing. Arguing with supporters and blocking them on Twitter when they question the product. Very unprofessional.

I hope you’re right. I’ve barely spent any money for months due to the Covid situation. I’m primed and ready to spend on some new merchandise.

It's pretty decent that to be fair, but the prices are still mental. Keeping fingers crossed we launch something tasty.

Macron have been announced as the new kit manufacturer for the national team, signing a 7 year contract. A new kit is to be released in time for the October test against France.

Looking at it from the WRU's viewpoint it's a good decision, they get a cash injection & they can also sell the rights to the Autumn Internationals.
