I've got a Nike outlet and a Mike Ashley's budget emporium round my way, which are very nice for bagging some cheap swag when I want a pick-me-up. Picked up the red England away this week for £8 to add to recentish acquisitions of outdated Arsenal and Barca shirts and my favourite Inter away with the massive St George's cross on it. Obviously the England carries a stigma which is only amplified by the 'South Africa' embroidered under the crest. Was thinking of adding a 'Terry 6' for a full punk/swastika vibe.
Want: the Inter away with the dragons and a decent Milan shirt, don't mind which. The bwin one is on offer for £8 but looks cheap as hell. I'd like a 70s Ajax one. My retro Cosmos shirt looks like it's lost for good, I'd really like that back most of all.

i have been good at buying shirts over the years but poor at hanging on to them. not sure how many cov shirts i've had but a good number. had a home and away shirt from the 3 years i had season ticket at goodison, including this beauty:
owned at some point as a child/teen an arsenal home (not sure why), pompey home (really not sure why), both an ugly celtic away and an ugly rangers away. also has this monstrosity:
had a few european shirts, mostly from places i visited. had a white OFI shirt, that purple madrid above, plus this psg away and this awesome roma home but with long sleeves, wolf heads all the way down to the cuffs:
only international shirt i ever had was a very fake looking latvia one a few years ago. but my mum did knit me a red jumper with a lion in an england kit for the 82 world cup.

I used to buy all the replica shirts through the worst era for Celtic away shirts (lol 1990s), and I think it's scarred me for life. Possibly literally, ugh cheap shiny material. I used to have an Ireland away shirt and a Brazil shirt at one point as well. Now all I own is a slimfit ladies Scotland shirt. I have a couple of Celtic official club shop t-shirts though which I bought for Seville, which still get an outing occasionally. Considering a St Pauli retro one.

The two proper-proper (i.e. not TOFFS) shirts I have are both Saints ones - one from the most recent relegation season (i.e. the one that might as well be an Exeter shirt) and our current one (i.e. the loveliest thing in English football right now), as modelled by Jose Fuckin' Fonte:
Only really got one in the want column - Angola's from the last African Cup of Nations.
What I'd really like is the body to carry off wearing that shirt, though. But apparently that doesn't happen by itself, so.

Ismael xpost - my favourite Inter away with the massive St George's cross on it.
I used to have one of these! It was my FAVOURITE KIT. And then I stopped being able to wear clothes I owned when I was 10. ;_;
I currently only have this season's Arsenal away kit. No name on the back. When I was younger I had- Arsenal gk kit with the stars on it with Seaman 1 on the back, Arsenal away from the same year 94/95 w/ Wright 8, that Inter kit, a PSG home shirt with that cool Opel sponser w/ the lightning strike, a p sweet Italian away kit when it was all white...
Currently want- an Ajax one, from any time really; a Fiorentina Batitstuta or Baggio one; will get Fabregas 4 next season for his last at Arsenal; a Baresi 6 Milan shirt; I like the Udinese one with the lines all pushed in together; an Argentina away with Messi 10 etc. etc.

That Guardian thing shows Spain 82 as kind of the watershed for non-traditional kits coming in, the Umbro braces on the Belgian kit make me all nostalgic. USA 94 is just lol90s. After that there is a definite theme for each tournament, but I can't quite put my finger on what it is. I also like that Portugal have had a completely different kit every time.

Love Macron because they were the only one of the big companies willing to deal with Hereford when they reformed in such a lowly league.
With the Wembley appearance and all they sold FIFTEEN THOUSAND shirts of various types in the first season, they had branded videos on the front page of their website of "the road to the FA Vase final" in the week leading up to it.
They even sent a delegation to the match and sponsored a box - we were on the same train as them from Baker Street and got chatting, they were laughing about how it was prosecco and cigars all round as re-orders kept coming in. They also pointed out that they made Palace's kit and they had played in the FA Cup final the day before, and to ask ourselves why they were making the effort to come from Italy for us and not them...

Last Saturday I went to see the first home match of Clapton CFC (the supporter-owned club formed by the 'Clapton Ultras' that had been watching Clapton FC). Not because I was massively interested in them, but just because I was free, it only cost £2 to get in, and it was just five minutes away from my house. I didn't know much about them, but I knew they wore red and white stripes, so I was a bit confused when they came onto the pitch wearing a red/yellow/purple/spots/stripes/stars monstrosity of a kit. I thought it was awful. When I read the programme I found out that the fans had voted on this design for their new away kit and it was based on the flag of the anti-fascists in the Spanish civil war. Worthy, maybe, but an embarrassing design, I thought. I now see it's become an overnight sensation - despite the fact there were only about 200 people at the match, they've sold over 5,000 shirts in the this week and had to suspend orders because they can't cope with the demand (mostly coming from Spain). https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2018/aug/31/no-pasaran-clapton-cfc-anti-fascist-football-kit-proves-hit-in-spain
