These 1978 adidas catalogue pages are simplicity itself. Barely a frill in sight, the most significant flourish in the modelling comes from the dashing chap playing the referee’s role.

Trefoil, no adidas wordmark, sleeve stripes is the order of the day on the teamwear kits. Slight variation in the necklines - v-neck or contrast wrapover - is perhaps tied in with having long or short sleeves, but Johan Cruyff would have been itching to remove a stripe on the Netherlands-style shirt, evocative as it is.

AZ Alkmaar have announced Nike as their new kit manufacturer after five years with Under Armour and revealed their new Blue Away and Teal Tint Third kits for next season.

As of the new season, AZ will defend its club colours in the Dutch Eredivisie and Europe wearing match kits and training apparel designed by Nike.

United Soccer League (USL) side Locomotive El Paso FC recently released a special edition Cinco de Mayo “Noche de Locos” (crazy night) shirt.

The black BLK shirt with the colourful sash suggests influences from Borderlands, Texan and Mexican culture - the yellow being a nod to Sun City (El Paso), the red representing the local sunsets, the purple as the colour of the club mascot, the green denoting the Southwest University Park pitch on which the team plays, and the black evoking the night sky in the desert.

The 1992-93 season is one which is held in high regard by Aston Villa fans. Though they ended the domestic campaign trophyless, the West Midlands side gave eventual inaugural Premier League champions Manchester United a decent run for their money - beating them at Villa Park (along with a League Cup victory) and avoiding defeat at Old Trafford - and they looked very stylish doing it.

The new Chesterfield FC Home and Away shirts by Puma have been revealed. A home kit featuring the traditional blue and white colours has been joined by a white and green away kit.

Patrick is a Belgian football apparel brand which, when mentioned, evokes memories of various eras. This catalogue from 1983 is more or less peak Patrick.

Featuring colour variations to the famous two-stripe boots - colour variations to the stripes only, of course - the pages also include a wonderful Hayes manual-styled diagram of said boots’ technological makeup, with a key in French and Dutch. Something for a feature wall in a dream home?

Dunfermline Athletic FC revealed the new Away kit for the 2020–21 Scottish Championship season.

The red and black away kit has white details and is once again produced by Joma and proudly carry shirt sponsor SRJ Windows.

Club Atlético Colón - known as Colón de Santa Fe - have released a 115th anniversary shirt.

In the Argentine club’s iconic red and black halves, the long-sleeved shirt dispenses with modern stylings, including manufacturer Kelme’s logo appearing in an unobtrusive “tonal” style. Instead, there is a retro lace-up collar, nodding to the initial design worn after the formation of the club on 5th May 1905.
