Some football kits, save for competition patches, take identically the same form in every match they’re worn in, for the entirety of their tenure. Then there are kits like the one Queen’s Park Rangers wore between 1983 and 1985.

Given the True Colours treatment, this classic QPR outfit - if we are to see it as a single entity despite obvious ship of Theseus/Trigger’s broom comparisons - sees, over two seasons, its blue and white hoops (trimmed with red) trade places, the crest and adidas logo appear in red and white, and the shirt(s) being carried with every combination of white and blue sets of shorts and socks.

Worn in the Loftus Road’s side’s return to the 1st Division in 1983-84, and 1984-85’s retention of that status, variations to the crest recorded this iconically Guinness-sponsored shirt dining at the top table.
