"kit out" doesn't belong here. Derived phrases including phrasal verbs like this get their own pages. — Hippietrail 11:24, 28 May 2004 (UTC)

The verb sense has reappeared...not sure you can kit something or that something can be kitted without adding another word such as out making a phrase? trunkie 10:15, 29 Jun 2004 (UTC)

English rfdef[edit]

I think "black armbands, complete with stitched-in poppies" is covered by sense 4 ("any collection of items needed for a specific purpose"). It may not be a "collection" for the players, but the manufacturer had to stitch the poppies into the armbands. -- 21:05, 26 April 2013 (UTC)

Or sense 6, clothing. It seems to me like I've seen a more specialized sense, like costume or uniform, as in the set of special things one wears for an occasion- but that's a pretty vague recollection. Chuck Entz (talk) 22:42, 26 April 2013 (UTC)
Now you say costume/uniform, I remember w:en:template:football kit, because it gave us fixed names like commons:file:kit left arm fcgroningen1213home.png, forcing (US?) English names on football teams in other countries. I don't know which discussion enforced the word kit, but it probably is a bountiful source of durable archived uses of "kit" in your proposed sense. -- 01:05, 27 April 2013 (UTC)
I've now added the sense, moved the quote from the rfdefed sense, and deleted that sense. Chuck Entz (talk) 06:52, 28 April 2013 (UTC)
