Who doesn’t love 1970s football kits? The simple designs are a thousand times more pleasing to the eye than most modern day shirts. The site footballshirtculture.com has a very impressive page with photos and renderings of each kit from the 1978 World Cup down to the smallest details. Beautifully done.

The most surprising is what is listed as France’s “third kit” (below), which seems very unFrench. Indeed, according to the site it actually belonged to local team Kimberley FC, who lent France their shirts when as both teams had shown up with only white to wear.

What’s your personal favourite there?  I’ve always loved the Adidas Netherlands kit myself.
