England: 5 Best Retro England Jerseys


England have one of the most recognisable international teams in the footballing world. With world famous players representing the Three Lions over the years, some iconic moments have taken place while wearing the white England strip. In this article we will take a stroll down memory lane looking at five of the best England strips.

Away shirt 1966-74

There is no better way to start off a list like this than looking at England’s iconic 1966 World Cup winning jersey.

Umbro manufactured this jersey and when it comes to England away jerseys, red has always been a staple.

Home shirt 1980-83

Admiral’s final England jersey is definitely one of the most recognisable international strips over the years. Its unique design and stand-out colourway makes it very memorable.

England did not have much success wearing the strip though as they crashed out early of both the 1980 European Championship and the 1982 World Cup.

Third shirt 1990-92

This is a favourite for many England fans, despite it only ever being worn once. The shirt made an appearance in New Order’s “World in Motion” music video and its popularity only grew from there.

This jersey’s diamond patterned design really made it stand out and has been used as inspiration for many football shirts since.

It is for sure a classic and a must buy for any England fan who wants to wear something other than the white home jersey.

Home shirt 1995-96

There aren’t many England shirts that bring back as much nostalgia as the home jersey from Euro 96’. Paul Gascoigne’s iconic goal against Scotland and Alan Shearer’s brace against the Netherlands, this shirt has seen it all.

Umbro went bold with this jersey by moving away from red and adding a turquoise trim to the usual white and navy colour combination. At the time some fans may have had questions about this strip, but today they can only look back with a smile and great memories.

Home shirt 1990-92

Italia 90’ is another tournament fondly remembered by Three Lions fans, despite the heartbreak it ended with. Umbro once again created a masterpiece with this strip, adding a subtle diamond pattern behind the badge along with a stylish cuff. The look is finished off with a classy one-buttoned collar.

Although many associate this shirt with Gazza’s tears and Chris Waddle’s penalty miss, it can’t be denied that this strip is a beauty and has a special place in the hearts of England fans.
