Note: For those who place importance in the truth, we suggest checking the date of publication of this article. For those who value football kits above all else, please enjoy this article unreservedly. There have been several events in the over ten-year history of DF that have staggered me. The good, like so many members becoming bona fide kit designers in some shape or form, the bad (but partially good), when kits from the site get turned into the real (counterfeit) thing by opportunists, and ...

Here's Episode 30 of The DesignFootball.com Podcast. Don't worry about Episode 27 - don't call it; it'll call you. No, Episode 30 is great, and features a DF member in the form of Angelo Trofa, or Amadeus Angelillo as he's known around these parts. For those not familiar with Angelo, he's largely a fantasy designer, certainly in the world of football design, and his kits have been featured on websites and in publications far and wide, mostly off the back of his Football Strip Concepts magazines...

One of the most regularly heard opinions on international football shirts is that they are blessed by the lack of a sponsor. In fact, the reverse is also true, in that club shirts - see the coming season’s Ipswich Town shirts - are often regarded as ruined by the sponsor’s branding. This received wisdom has is merits, but doesn’t provide the whole story. Indeed, many club shirts are enhanced by their sponsor. But that’s steady ground. Club shirts, for the last three or four decades at least, ar...

Another new episode of the DesignFootball.com podcast! This time, in Episode 29, MuseumofJerseys.com's Denis Hurley interviews Classic Football Shirts' Doug Bierton. Incredible knowledge from both participants, and the inclusion of details about the Fabric of Football event in London this month, makes this essential listening..

Check the date of publishing for this one, folks. We hope you enjoy, and what does the truth matter anyway?   The Arsenal 1988-1990 Home kit has always intrigued me, so when I was provided with some very interesting information about it, I enlisted the help of the brilliant MuseumofJerseys.com to tell the world.“If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck.” The duck test, which may have long been subconsciously applied to this particular kit b...

Episode 27 is currently missing (at point of publishing). Well spotted. It'll be here later, and we apologise for its current omission. But this is a great one featuring a chat with Shawn from the St. Pauli FC podcast Fell In Love With a Girl. A left-wing supporter base for a cult football team with an interesting kit history - including the uncommon colour palette - St. Pauli is an incredibly interesting subject. Particularly as this podcast episode was recorded in the aftermath of the G20 con...

So, what a year it's been. Yes, largely podcast-free. Or so you'd think. In fact, we've recorded some, but, due to a combination of work commitments, technical issues, and good old chronic procrastination, we haven't published them. So here's one. This treat was recorded with highly-respected French football journalist Mohammed Ali way back in the Spring, just as the 2016-17 season was coming to an end, and covers the Olympique de Marseille 2017-18 kit releases, and the upcoming implications of...

A long, long time ago, in a galaxy far, far, away... John Devlin returned to The DesignFootball.com Podcast to discuss the retro shirt and kit market. And what fun we had discussing this fascinating marketing frontier. With so many retro shirts available, both officially and, well, let's say unofficially, and so many modern kits taking their cues from the iconic examples of yore - perhaps something worth revisiting itself, aptly enough - the subject was begging to be tackled, so we did exactly...

For one who cares so much for baselayers, to have not written about this particular subject before is quite the oversight. Sorry, to be clear, I've certainly written about baselayers - like here - but this article acts as a 15th anniversary celebration of a concept that, bizarrely, seemingly came from nowhere, then went straight back there: The dual-layered football shirt. In 2002 - and we'll stick with this as a launch date, even if some may have come some months earlier - Nike and adidas, tho...

As someone who blogs on the subject of football shirts pretty regularly - 42 in nine years is pretty good going, right? - I don’t tend to buy the things all that much. I’m a little portly, and knocking on, and recently, when BBC Radio Merseyside were discussing the new Liverpool Home kit prior to another John Devlin guest appearance, someone called in to point out that “If you’re older than the players who wear it, don’t buy the shirt”.   It is a fair p...
