Today we're taking a trip down memory lane, back to the 1990s. When we weren’t watching Friends or jamming out to the sweet sound of dial-up internet, we were having our eyes assaulted by some pretty, ahem, ‘interesting’ kit designs. Keep reading to see some of our favorites.
A strong start here featuring pattern on pattern. But it feels eerily familiar… where have we seen this before?
Can’t quite put my finger on it but moving on.
We have a love-hate relationship with this one. Because as bad as that denim is, the nostalgia hits hard. Side note: always thought a mullet flowing in the wind was the Australian dream, but this photo suggests otherwise.
Okay, so it’s a goalkeeper uniform, but we literally couldn’t look past it. We salute you Jorge Campos for arguably pulling off this selection of aggressive graphic shapes. Looking sharp.
