NBL clothing in latest Kmart catalogue

I was flicking through the latest Kmart catalogue flipped the page and thought that male model looks a bit like Daniel Dillon and then saw the NBL logos on his socks and wristband and sure enough there in print was his name along with Felix Von Hofe who I think is a DP for Melbourne United.

They've got a couple of kids with them as well, who knew the NBL were back in the clothing/apparel game?

The stuff they're selling with NBL logos on them include kids muscle tank tops $8, kids mesh shorts $8, Men's sleeveless hoodies $15, wristbands $4 pr, men's woven shorts $12, men's print tee $10, men's trackpants $20, kids print tee $8, kids trackpants $15, Wilson NBL rubber size 7 basketball $19, Wilson NBL composite size 7 basketball $29.

NBL New Range, In Store Now!

Well done LK!

There was a big announcement earlier in the week about the NBL launching its own apparel line, which will provide all NBL jerseys, 3x3 hustle gear, etc.

I saw some small drawstring gear bags bags on a KMart last weekend. Abou5 the size of a swimming gear bag.

My first thought was that the store was trying a hustle to sell leftover shoe bags from the old Andrew Gaze range.

Wonder why they used Dan Dillon? He isn't an active NBL player?

Thought they would use high profile NBL/Boomers as would make sense from a branding point of view

The K Mart apparel isn't the same stuff. I actually bought a few of their T Shirts for gym. Not bad fits and look for 10 bucks each.

Kmart would've bought the license to produce the NBL branded stuff. Then they would've organised their own brand rep and model. Probably didn't matter to them that DIllon doesn't play NBL, as long as he is a basketball player.

Will never forget buying Gaze shoes from K-Mart. They literally fell apart (split in half) on me while playing streetball against Sudanese kids.

I like the pricing. Unlike the $80+ jerseys on sale at games, it might help get the brand out there on kids, etc.

A few players (U18 top age) were sporting NBL shorts and singlets at practice. Looked good. Was shocked just now when I saw they were only $8

My kids have come home from school with free KMart tshirts, I didn't see this coming but it makes sense. Well done LK.

Hope that LK's venture into the clothing market is better that what he has produced with the NBL. Maybe the quality of the clothing he is producing is of a better quality that the refereeing of the NBL has been this year.

Thats like saying the entire clothing range is poor because you don't like the shoelaces.

Thats an analogy by the way, Very Old.

One thing that helps is that the branding is largely muted. Not sure if they still do it or even if they still exist, but remember the And 1 gear from a decade ago with those illustrated characters? Pretty horrible.

Really glad to see them take this accessible road with base merch.

This isn't meant to be the top-of-the-line merch. It is meant to be cheap bargain clothing that will get the logo out there to as many people as possible and i think it will do okay. I'll be rocking the shirts happily at the gym. They seriously don't look too bad.

Shoelaces can be changed if you don't like them

Unlike Henny Penny, who flapped about screaming, "The sky is falling." Or like an anonypenny flapping, “That’s not an analogy. That’s an analysis.”

Also:
“thats” not a word;
“that’s” a word.

The funny looking thing before the “s”: it’s an apostrophe of contraction. Used as a matter of convention to indicate that a letter (or sometimes letters) have been removed to contract a word (and in this case it also signifies a second word being added to create a new word).

Further:
when copying definitions from a dictionary, it doesn’t help much to include examples of word use that are too narrow. Dysgraphia and dyslexia belong to a particular “vocalect” shared between people in vocations such as speech pathology, occupational therapy and psychology etc. The other use cited reads to me like an analogy to explain systems theory via analogy to biology, even though systems theory draws directly from biology for its theoretical basis.

See, an analysis of the (unacknowledged) dictionary sources renders the explanation less clear than ever before.

Or... we could all just accept that we all have our own views, and if you think you can express yourself better than others on the forum... good for you but there’s no need to offer critical analysis of someone else’s writing skills.

Oh Gees,
So they come in Blue/Grey, and Black/Red.Wonder which markets they're targetting??

Unfortunately your typical Australian consumer only sees as far as their own wallet. "It's cheap for me, it must be good."

Speciality sports stores I have found (in my geo-limited experience) generally try that bit harder, stock the speciality gear you need, and can be counted on to sponsor Junior sports, etc, etc.
And they are finding the going tougher and tougher. The rents small retailers are charged to subsidise the presence of the big draw-card chains is criminal.

So sure, buy more and more stuff from KMart cos its cheap, but good luck finding those size 15 BBL shoes when you need them.

Come on. KMart are not exactly trying to position themselves to wipe out the sporting apparel market here! Not everyone can afford to, or wants to, buy overpriced designer crap from specialty stores. There is plenty of space at both ends of the market and I'm glad to see the NBL being represented on clothing racks in front of a heap of shoppers. I think it's a great move.

picked up a couple of the nbl tshirts from kmart today they're pretty comfy for $10. the muscle shirts are really thin and feel nasty so forget those but the reversible singlets are great for $8 I reckon.
