The new range of Maitahi OCC clothing is now available to purchase from the MOCC My Club page on the Kapinua website.
You can now buy the following items :
Women’s short sleeve shirt
Women’s long sleeve shirt
Men’s short sleeve shirt
Men’s long sleeve shirt
The ordering is fairly straightforward and you can order single or multiple items on the same order. The more you order the cheaper the individual items become. The club is going to order a M size sample of each item so that anyone who wants to can get a better idea of the sizing. Our experience of previous shirts and hoodies is that they come up quite big so it might be worth waiting to try the M size as a reference point.
For all the shirts and the hoodie you do not need to make any adjustments to the fabric. The Pele X-Dry Micro is a very good water sports fabric that doesn’t cling and get chilly. The Iceberg material on the hoodie is not traditional cotton but is warm and durable. However, if you are ordering shorts you do need to select the Pele X-Dry Micro fabric or you will end up with rugby type shorts. We have not ordered shorts before so, again, it might be worth holding on until the sample arrives so we can have a good look at them.
If, for any reason, your pricing is not being shown in $NZ you can change the currency via the drop down box at the top left of the page.
Looking a bit further down the track, it will be possible for crews to order ‘Special Edition’ shirts for any big races they are attending. Similar to All Blacks shirts that have the specific match woven in below the silver fern. It will be possible, with Committee approval, to have the event and crew name subtly placed on the crew shirts (no individual names on race shirts as this would break the ‘identical shirts’ rule). If you have any issues or questions about this or anything else to do with the gear, email Tony at [email protected]
