There's a gallery on the echo site of all our home kits since the mid 80s, and having just enjoyed a good look over them I have come to the following controversial conclusion.

Last season's home shirt was the best we have ever had.

Got to agree, which is why this season I have got the away shirt for a change. :thumbup:

Last seasons shirt was exceptional. And the season before was great too.

95-96 home an obvious fave amongst many. The 10-11 shirt was really cool. Plus we won something in it.

But my favourite shirt of all time. The 04-05 all black (with white piping) away kit.

Any shirt with three broad black hoops is always going to be up there for me.

it's true. The Penney play off season shirt was exceptional too.

The worst by a mile was the second conference season one, from the last administration. Just awful. All the raj/fordy home efforts were pretty stinking, even the morritt one from Wembley.

Agreed - all the Avec kits have been smart.

It has to be the Glenwood Paints home strip for me. For the away, the green & black hoops from the mid-90's.

I don't think it's that controversial. It's a classic! I did like the previous seasons too, but found the Glenwood Paints sponsor graphic a bit cartooney (i know that's been their logo for.... forever, but it's rank) which took away from the kit a little.

I really like this years away kit. Will pick one up at some point.

Big fan of all the Avec kits; the Cosyseal one is probably least good of them but still better than a lot of what we've had in the past. Was surprised by the Glenwood one, which I thought was going to be awful and wasn't. I use last season's to play in and it's so smart it even manages to make me - 36 years old and 14st - look like a proper footballer, it's that smart.

That 82-84 Le Coq Sportif one looks pretty decent in the pictures as well, but before my time.

Has to be the 84-87 Hummel strip for me that is an absolute belter and gets a lot of plaudits on retro shirt sites. I have been after one for my collection for years unfortunately they are like rocking horse doo doo.

I rarely wear football tops nowadays (because I don't go to or play football anymore :lol: ) but I found myself wearing the 125th anniversary home kit the other day by Vandanel and there was a realisation that it's actually a smart shirt.
