Another example of John Devlin’s True Colours in-depth looks at particular kits is this Umbro Everton Away design from 1992.
Worn as the Toffees made their Premier League bow in the inaugural season - 1992-93 - and as club legend, the late Howard Kendall brought his second spell in charge to a close in the following campaign, this striking outfit was not accompanied by great success. However, the kit celebrated the Merseyside club’s past through the retro colour scheme of salmon (pink) and navy - in fetching stripes on the retro buttoned collar shirt.
Over the two seasons, the kit appeared in various configurations, with change salmon longline shorts - one for the trendiest Scouser by the pool, if they can somehow get their hands on a pair - NEC sponsor’s logo in two different styles, and names newly appearing on the back of shirt in its second year.
