    Two nice kits. I'd go for 02 largely on the shade of green.
    Covid-negative, maybe; I haven't checked.

    94 for me. 2002 looks too much like a towel.

    Actually, I'll throw in a vote too.

    Euro 88 in the first one - though I'm not sure if it'll last at the business end cos it does look a bit like a cheap Dunnes jersey.

    And 94 for the second one - one of my favourite jerseys. Still have it upstairs somewhere, but love the background pattern, the shade of green, and the little touch of the tricolour on the sleeve.

    I'll go 76-78, and 1994.

    Euro 88 hands down. I've started to warm to it over the years.

    ---

    I think the 2000/02 shirt is probably the nicer shirt of the pair, but the memories of that 1994 shirt are too big to dismiss and just about shades it for me.

    First whitewash of the last 16 sees Euro 88 through on a score of 8-0.

    Will leave 94 v 00-02 open till this evening for more votes, and then we'll have our last. Then we'll get into some trickier decisions on Monday

    Ah - it's our first draw of the tournament so. 4-4 the result.

    The tie-break I noted at the start was that my vote would be discounted as, effectively, a casting vote where none was needed. That means then that Fixer's vote is the one that swung it, and it's the 2000/01 kit which goes through.

    That gives us our final 8 kits. A lot of retro love in the final 8 - there's one kit from the 2010s, one from the 2000s, two from the 90s, three from the 80s and one from the 70s. I don't know are we all curmudgeonly old veterans at this stage, or should kit designers be sitting up and paying attention to this thread, or is it a mix of both. Either way, the quarters will kick off on Monday morning.

  11. Thanks From:

    It’s a bit of both I think

    Whatever about curmudgeonliness, the kits from the Charlton era have strong sentimental attachments. I think the spread over the years is pretty good, actually. Every decade from the last 5 represented, only one twice, and only one three times. If one of the 80s kits had lost to any 70s, 00s, or 10s kit, it'd be as evenly spread as possible.
    Covid-negative, maybe; I haven't checked.

    I guess in my mind, as jerseys have gotten more commercialised - and up to the mid 80s, jerseys weren't commercialised at all - they should have gotten nicer to sell more.

    Yet we seem to have a lot of bland offerings lately, many with a less nice shade of green.

    It could of course be that what the market in general finds "nice" is different to my view, but I'm happy to discount that possibility tbh

    I agree. There have been strange trends over the last few years. The bland/unimaginative has been in for a while. The luminous trend was god awful. Wales and Belgium I think had luminous jerseys for a while and we had a third kit that was luminous that thankfully was never worn

    I'd guess that was driven by some theory about visibility. Like the opposite of the famous Man United grey kit debacle.

    That would be a very poor argument

    This had potential to be a really nice jersey with the Celtic knot work and then they threw a big luminous stripe across it in case anyone decides to go out jogging at night

    Oh, I see. I thought there was a bigger fluorescent panel on it. Yeah, that's ugly as sin.

    Did we ever play in that? I don't remember it at all.

    I might do a "Best away kit" thread maybe in March when the World Cup qualifiers get underway. I think there's more variety there

    Right - quarter-final day. Things getting serious.

    First to take the stage is the WC94 qualifying kit. Got here by beating the 98-00 kit 10-4 and also the 2004-06 kit 6-2.



    And opposite it is the Euro 88/Italia 90 qualifying kit, which beat the (ultimately reprieved) 2002 qualifying kit 10-3 and the 76-78 kit 8-0.



    One has to go back into the wardrobe - but which one?
