It's a while since we had the classic shirt thread and as I'm going to try and collect some Northern/Bulls shirts soon I thought it'd be good to have a nostalgic thread. What makes a classic shirt for you the look or the memories of your team in it??

For me as a shirt is the Canberra "Milk" shirt ala Mal Meninga. Who said bogey green couldn't look cool?

For my club toss up between tradition and memories. The original hoops of Northern is iconic for me yet the "Compac" shirt of the late 90's brings out alot of memories (including girlfriends!! wub.gif blink.gif lol)

Another one I'd like to stick in for now is the Widnes "ICI" late 80's shirt. Simple but great.

Swindon St George 2007

It's our 1st kit and I love it. (Sorry can't get the link to work. Goole Swindon St George if you want a look.)

Also Australias is a classic much as it pains me to say.

I think every Widnes fan who hasn't got that shirt wants it. I always check ebay for it.

i really liked the cronulla shirts from the WCC in 97 - also thought the team were fantastic.

Also really liked the Hunter Mariners shirt from that season.


No offence to Sheffield Eagles fans but some of their shirts have been appalling.

How about that purple/green thing that B Northern had in the early 90s - i bought one, what was i thinking??? wacko.gif

For simplicity, the old plain red Salford shirt with the big S.
For optimism, the original Fulham shirt, black with red and white Vee.
For style, the GB shirt, white with a red and blue Vee, but without all the recent messing about.
For history, the Kangaroos green with a gold double Vee. They've never mucked about with the design and it deserves its iconic status.

I'm with you on this one Mick, with VAUX as the sponsor. The home one from the same era was good too..

Showing my age but love all the old simple shirts pre sponsors and logos with the number patch on the back.

My favourite was the Swinton V shirt that my late father wore in the great side of the 60s. I have one framed.(The same V that Saints copied and claim as their own mad.gif

I've got one................ and not just any old one biggrin.gif

The worst shirt i can remember was Hull KR's Blue, orange and god knows what else deckchair design.

That was a monstrosity.

Think the one your referring to was a few years earlier and was the alternate to the white shirt with three black stripes. It was an all red kit and did look very smart.

The one Mikes on about is considered by many as the classic Widnes shirt.

I think initially it was made by Bukta but they had problems with it.

Umbro then took it on.

I know it's not a popular choice, but I love the Bulls in green a couple of years back.

Souths have the best colours. So clearly recognisable.
