What's the deal with this kit? I often seen it listed in these "worst ever kits" lists, but I can't seem any official reference of us ever using it? Did we ever use it and if so what year?

Wasn't it a 'leisure' shirt or something along those weird 90's fashion clothing lines? Saw on here that plenty of clubs produced similar shirts sold in the club shops.

Was this taken from the afwul clickbait football365 article by any chance?

Technically, yes. I did see it today, but I have also seen it in several places over the years in similar artickes. It was the 365 article that got me thinking about it.

Produced in about 92 from memory. As SA rightly stated it was part of the leisure attire

You didn't seriously think that that had ever been worn in a match did you? I suppose it was an era of some pretty horrendous kits that makes it seem plausible. Norwich's infamous bird-shit speckled effort being a prime example. Arsenal had a shocking quasi-psychedelic away number about that time too.

There was an even worse white polo shirt with an eagle's head across the chest that looked worryingly like it might be the new home kit when it appeared in the club shop over the Summer. The prevailing fashion of the time made it seem possible but fortunately even we didn't stoop that low.

I really liked it when it came out. I now realise that it is dreadful. But I still quite like it.

I bought one .... wasn't it called .... "New York Skyline" or something.

In hindsight ... dreadful fashion faux pas.

Very obviously a stereogram on a shirt
