Looks like weve signed a 10yr retail deal with the UK distributor of X-Blades, Elite Pro Sport

2020 kit by ISC though, which is odd - possibly seeing out an existing shirt (only) deal before switching? ISC shirts have been okay generally, but wasn't a fan of this season's effort.

Some ISC shirts have been really good. What i dont get is why the size changes year on year, the arms can be nice and high, tight fit then they can be long and loose?? And the length of the shirts is hit and miss.

“The store will re-open with our new look ISC home kit for 2020”

I like ISC stuff I usually buy the ‘player issue’ shirts though so nit sure on quality of the replica stuff.

One thing that annoyed me this year is they dropped XS sizes on leisure and training wear do they lost a few sales from me.

As much as I like ISC it would probably be nice to have a change as we've been with them for so long, not sure about xblades though, aren’t Cas with them and their shirts have been hit and miss in design

Quite like the stuff Hummell have been doing, I believe Wigan have switched to them for this year

It looks like it is a retail services only deal, EPS has ISC merch on their website.

Just realised Leeds and ISC partnered for 10yrs in 2017 anyway. Haha, doh.

Wakefield launched their new jersey
https://twitter.com/wtrinityrl/status/1 ... 53826?s=21

Lovely designed ruined by cheap badly designed logos slapped on it (as per most teams shirts including ours!)

But I hope that is ISC’s standard collar design for 2020

Apparently ISC have made their UK staff redundant and are leaving their base in Castleford, so in theory shutting shop. I wouldn’t be surprised if this was the case with the new deal announced and we go to Oxen Sport (X-Blades new name). Lee has worked with Hull FC and Leeds commercial departments previously and designed some cracking kits.

Seconded.

I have some shirts from years ago by ISC about 3xl that fit perfect, yet have some 5xl ones that are ridiculously short in length and practically unwearable without showing my gut (nobody wants that)

I don't know who does their sizing but they must be drunk when they do it.

Club shop closing down for 2 weeks, for new occupiers to move in. Looks like 3rd party will be running it moving forward.
