^ All of those are awesome, as is anything Jorge Campos put on, and our own immortal cartoon keeper kits.
As you move away from the simple, timeless, elegant designs of the classiest kits, you first enter a zone of boringly shit strips, like in shades of grey with pointless sporty stripes and tedious watermarks and what have you, such as the ones posted on the previous page, which are unarguably, irredeemably awful. But once you've passed on through that zone into zanier waters, they start getting so fucking batshit weird and adventurous that you have to just sit back and admire it, as a piece of art
It's all about time & place, and if something stands out as either being absolutely of its era, or utterly distinct from everything around it (sometimes it's both, somehow), then it has some worth to me. It's not enough just to be multicoloured and loud - they need to try really hard, incorporating Vorticism, Pointillist elements, whatever pushes the envelope. Give me sharp art deco angles. Ben-Day dots. Filthy glam animal print.
If you want to play it safe with the home & away strips, then fair enough; just go to town on the 3rd kit. A world without mental football stars saying, doing and wearing crazy shit isn't worth contemplating.
