I love some kits that Parma wore in the 90s!

I too loved those bumblebee Parma kits, but if the fans prefer the cross then it's right. Just wish they used it as a standard clash. And while Parma had some fantastic success in those years, the way it was obtained has left most fans wanting to just be a calm, little provincial side

Ahhh the 90s

Yeah, the swastikas killed those kits pretty fast
How do they miss something that egregious?
Am I missing something or do you guys not know what a swastika looks like......

Look at where some of the black lines intersect, not the shapes they form. The clearest one I can spot is on his shoulder, just above and to the right of the club badge.

I see it now. Funny how that symbol was such a positive symbol for so long until the whole Germany thing.

Did Nazi that coming.

I'll see myself out.

What our rabble were wearing in the mid-1990s. We wore this in the UEFA Cup would you believe?

That acid trip shouldn't have seen the light outside of the 60s

EDIT: Just remembered how big Madchester/Baggy/rave was in England in the mid-90s, nevermind

EDIT EDIT: When I googled Nottingham Forest to see how close it was to Manchester, one of the recent news articles that popped at the top was one that referred to this list that The Guardian made two years ago of some of the more garish soccer uniforms they could find, many of which are unsurprisingly from the 90s

Did you guys forget about this?mexico-home-football-shirt-1996-1998-s_3

That design has already lasted 1,000 years... it's timeless!

Seriously, though, maybe make it more subtle, but that's an awesome jersey.

There's no way on earth that Dukla Prague's kit warrants a place on a list of dodgy apparel. Poor form, Guardian.

Oh dude that isn't a jersey I made, it's just a classic 90's jersey...but I've seen many designers take a risk at doing something like it, and it looked AWESOME!

Was 1995 the start of Adidas's shoulder stripes then? I see in 97-99 they snuck their stripes onto the collar as well, but what's more interesting to me about that jersey is that the chest stripe continuing onto the arms makes it seem like a premonition of the MLS template.

It's notable that Nike and Adidas had nearly identical styles so close together in time.

The Nike 1998 Chicago Fire shirt (chosen in 1997) was the same base model as the 97-98 Arsenal away shirt and very similar to this Bayern model. In the Arsenal version, the stripe also appeared slightly lower on the shirt back. The 1999 Fire shirt was a custom design based off the 98 version.

I miss that Crew jersey. I didn't like how the numbers were applied to it though.

I, on the other hand, would like to forget I ever saw that.

That's how I feel about last year's kits.

These?

They're not exciting, but they're certainly not offensive. Well, unless you hate all trim, like Goth. ;) (C'mon, I haven't made that joke in a while, Goth. :D)

A modernized version of this design should be mexico's default kit for eternity.

Trim usually refers to flourishes around the edges. I don't see much trim on those. Maybe that's why I like 'em. ;)

Indeed. Somehow, this was deemed important enough to make local news: http://www.nottinghampost.com/Nottingham-Forest-strip-named-worst-history/story-25847037-detail/story.html

David Seaman at Euro 96:

Seaman apparently opined that this kit made him look like 'a tube of Refreshers'.

He wasn't wrong.

I laugh, because these are tame compared to those of North America in the late 1970s and early 1980s...

Agreed. When it comes to soccer kits, nobody was, or ever will be, more audacious then the Caribous. It was like the wild west on the field.
