    No contest there really - 13-4 in favour of the Euro 88 kit. Would have been interesting to see how it fared against the Italia 90 kit actually as they're virtually identical.

    But we'll never know, because the final is between the US94 kit and the Italia 90 kit. A quick recap of how they got here -

    USA 1994
    Bt Euro 2012 7-5
    Bt 1998-00 9-4
    Bt WC 2002 11-5
    Bt Euro 88 11-6

    Italia 90
    Bt 2004 11-6
    Bt 2021 13-1
    Bt 2005 12-2
    Bt 1992-94 11-1

    Italia '90 by miles also. (Fwiw, it would have been an easy win v Euro 88 too for me).

    The Italia 90 shirt is a classic no doubt, but there's something about the 1994 shirt that keeps dragging me back. Maybe 11 year old me was more impressed than 7 year old me! Vote has to go to the three amigos and 1994.

    Italia 90.

    Running so far ahead of the other that not even a relay team of Kevin Moran and Mick McCarthy versus Terry Phelan on a cocktail of crack cocaine and speed could threaten its supremacy.

    If it came to it I would have plumped for 88 over 90. As it stands, I'm having a crisis of conscience with 90 over 94.

    1990... Just about.

    I vote for 90, because it's 90, and perfection, as the Fassbender meme states.

    However...the 94 kit is an absolute peach in my eyes, and for me is miles ahead of all others. It's so different, and also isn't a reverse of the 'home' tournament jersey, and has no real similarities to the other Adidas jerseys of that competition. I'd go so far as to say it's the underrated gem of our away jerseys despite reaching the final.
    That's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age

    the 94 shirt has grown on me as the competition went on but 1990 gets my vote.
    cant help feeling that the tournament kits do better simply because they involve special memories.

    I'd say there's an element of that alright. Also, there's a nostalgia thing too as I think most of us here would remember the 88/90/94 tournaments.

    But objectively, the home and the away kits have being using a progressively darker green over the years, and I don't think it works as well. I don't like the newer jerseys as a result.

    I'll lob in a vote for USA 94 here. I like it - and the home kit was great too - and it doesn't deserve to be hammered quite this badly. It's a consolation goal at 6-1 down, sure, but it's a consolation goal it deserves.

    Damn, that's a toughie. Subjectively, '90 is such an iconic and classic design, and associated with such an important time in our modern history. But the child in me remembers the 1994 tournament rather better, and nostalgia has a such powerful bearing over these things. And let's face it, '94 is a pretty darn great-looking kit too. We also scored one of our best ever team goals whilst wearing it.

    Anyway, I know I'm onto a loser with this one, but it has to be '94 for me - at a squeak.

    A tiny comeback at the end makes the score a bit respectable, but the result was never in doubt. On a score of 11-5, the Italia 90 kit completes the double and is crowned foot.ie's best ever Ireland away kit!



    Runner-up after growing stronger as the tournament went on is the USA 94 kit -



    And in third we have the Euro 88 qualifying kit -

    And a special shout-out for the kit voted the worst ever away kit, the 2002 qualifying kit -



    Thanks to all for playing. If I can get some goalkeeper kits, I'll try run that around the time of the autumn qualifiers!

    Fixed that for you, PS - let's keep the expectations modest!

    Thanks for organising this and the fun of the last few weeks. Looking forward to the next instalment - it'll be interesting to test the nostalgia theory on the Italy 90 keeper kit...
