Hibernian FC revealed their 2020-21 Home shirt and announced that the club will proudly bear the words “Thank You NHS” on the front of their new shirts when next season does get underway.

The club decided to take the opportunity to express the thanks of the entire Hibernian and football community to the magnificent health service for the heroic, selfless and dedicated efforts of its staff during the coronavirus pandemic.

This early 1980s adidas Ipswich Town strip, rendered by True Colours author John Devlin, is fondly remembered by fans of the East Anglia-based English side and kit aficionados alike.

Classic in design, the pinstriped shirt with substantial v-neck began life in 1981 with the recognisable Pioneer logo and wordmark, before this was soon dispensed with and replaced with a stretched wordmark-only variant, with even this missing from some versions.

Southend United FC announce that Hummel will be the club’s new Technical Kit and Retail Partner from the 2020/2021 season until at least the end of the 2022/2023 season.

The deal will see Hummel produce bespoke Blues kits each season, as well as a range of training and retail wear, which will be available to buy from the Southend United Club Shop.

The wonderful pages here are taken from a 1981 catalogue advertising Erima products.

After being a long-term supplier to adidas, the German giants purchased its smaller compatriot in 1976 and Erima continued to produce football kits on The Brand with the Three Stripes’ behalf. In fact, there is a definite three-striped flavour to these designs - particularly when the adidas sleeve taping is so conspicuous as it is on the Bayern Munich shirt here!

Manchester United's classic 1998–2000 Umbro home kit examined in detail.

One of the all-time great United kits and the last to feature the club's long term sponsor, Sharp. With it's old-fashioned white collar the strip echoed Umbro's first kit from their return to Old Trafford in 1992 but what really made this shirt shine was the addition of a new rendering of Umbro's famous diamond taping from the 70s.

The new 2020 Indonesia Home kit has been launched by manufacturer Mills Sports.

Replacing the outgoing Nike version, the Mills design retains the familiar red colouring of the side representing the national association - the PSSI - but features a more bespoke look.

A scouring of Twitter has unearthed Jimmy from The Glove Bag bringing to light some glorious football kit marketing from nearly three decades ago.

The images from the Replica World catalogue feature some wonderful Umbro designs for the 1991-92 season. This pivotal moment - a year prior to the English Premier League’s kick-off - sees, amongst other things, the shift between short shorts and a return to the longer variety, with both on display in these pages (it was still a time when year-old releases carried over for a second campaign).
