St. Mirren unveiled their new home and away kits made by Hummel for the 2008-09 season. The traditional home colours of St. Mirren are black and white strips, however for the first season the colours were Scarlet and Blue.

It is unknown as to how exactly the colours black and white were chosen, however popular theories include, that north of Paisley the Black Cart and White Cart Rivers meet, and that monks of Paisley Abbey wore Black and White robes.

The strips have varied very little, however the thickness of the strips has often varied, with pinstripes being popular, and indeed some years have seen horizontal stripes.

Away tops are traditionally red or all black, however in some cases strips have varied from orange to light blue, as seen on the 2007-2008 strip. Since 07/08, the Danish firm, Hummel International, have replaced Xara as kit-manufacturers.

St Mirren has had a number of main sponsors, mainly in the transportation industry, with several local bus companies and car dealerships sponsoring in the club. St. Mirren have been sponsored since 2005 by Braehead Shopping Centre a local shopping centre in the North of Renfrewshire.

The only time Saints have ever worn \"horizontal stripes\" was in their first few league seasons and never since 1884.<br /><br />Since that date, bar a few seasons when the shite was all white, it has veen vertical black and whitre stripes.

If I\'m not mistaken isn\'t this the same template for Cork City?

I\'m sure they had a white kit with a black band in the 70\'s when the Ajax-style kits were the craze.<br /><br />Anyway these kits look good though I fear Hummel have ruined the home with a plain black back - hope I\'m wrong though.
