Umbro have quite the pedigree in football kit design - they have been around for very close to a century - and way back in 1969, the year of these catalogue pages, they were a dominating force.

Even something as simple as their “Blue ‘C’ Nylon” sock range excites - they did, after all, have a “l-o-n-g wear guarantee” - but the “Denis Law umbroset for boys” is another level.

A Manchester United kit trying to avoid the wrath of Manchester United by not claiming to be an Manchester United kit, it would surely have provoked huge envy amongst schoolchildren of the time.

Kneepads for goalkeepers, messenger bags and a whole load of stuff - including very stylish boots - from then-associate adidas; we can modernise and adapt a showcase of apparel products, but can we better this 50 years later?

Thanks to Jimmy from The Glove Bag - tgbjimmy on Twitter - for bringing this to our attention.
