Umbro 1992-93 Collection…. Part Four

More diamond encrusted Umbro strips from the dawn of the Premier League…

Along with the retro lace-up collar designs that clubs like Villa and Sheffield United wore, there was a tandem retro design that saw a very distinctive collar design…

It is easier to illustrate than describe – so here it is in the garibaldi of Nottingham Forest…

And the emerald green of Northern Ireland – made to look even classier standing next to the dog’s dinner of an away kit…

The same design with broader stripes also served as a popular away strip for Manchester City…

and for Celtic., both of whom were still sporting ‘old’ style home kits.

Check out our previous forays into the Umbro 1992-93 catalogue here: Part One, Part Two, Part Three

If you adore this sort of stuff beyond what would be considered reasonable for an early-middle-aged man then you really should own a copy of retro-footy-grumble-fest ‘Got, Not Got’ … you can get it from branches of WH Smith and Waterstones or online here
