Some of My Favorites






Here are some of my favorite football kit designs. This is by no means a comprehensive list. It is also not year-specific, meaning that only the teams that have the best uniforms year-in and year-out are listed here. Eventually I'll do a list of the best year-specific designs. So here they are in no particular order:
#1. Vasco Da Gama - Home/Away: This Brazilian team has a simple yet elegant design in white or black with a diagonal sash. I particularly like the black shirt. This club has managed to steer clear of adverts on the front of the jersey. I also heard somewhere that the club chose its colors of black and white as a symbol of racial unity and that the club was at the forefront of racial integration in Brazilian football. You gotta like that.
#2. Sampdoria - Home: I don't know the story behind this design, but I like it. A royal blue shirt with red and black stripes inside a white rectangle. And in the middle is a shield with a cross on it. The current cut of the shirt notwithstanding, this is a nice shirt.
#3. Boca Juniors - Home: This shirt is famous around the world because of Diego Maradona and the club's many international achievements. The blue and yellow is distinctive and classy. They usually alternate every year or so between a royal blue shirt and a more navy blue design. I prefer when they use the royal blue.
#4. Italy - Home: This jersey has always been simple and classic. I think it's the best example of a country using a color not on their national flag as a primary color on their uniform.
#5. Peru - Home/Away: Maybe you are seeing a pattern. I like Royal blue and diagonal sashes. Seriously, the Peru jersey is very nice. I prefer the away red jersey to the home white. We can also throw River Plate in this mix but I won't put up their picture because I'm a Boca fan!

The colors BlacK and White symbol Balance.
The Band represent the Respect and for this reason he has the Cross of Malta close to the heart and the Color Red represents the Blood, Heart and the Life.
Thus an admirer of the Vasco da Gama carry your love to the teams where it will be, same it not possessing a shirt of the Vasco in its body, it can beat in the chest and say VASCO OF HEART FOREVER.

What you it really said is truth ^^

"Colors of black and white as a symbol of racial unity and that the club was at the forefront of racial integration in Brazilian football. You gotta like that."

Thx dude
Your respect for VASCO DA GAMA are great.
BB :D

Sampdoria was born from union of two Genova teams, Sampierdarense and Andrea Doria. Sampierdarense had a white shirt with horizontal red & black stripes (similar to Sao Paulo, but without the white stripe between), Andrea Doria's shirt was half blue and half white (like Blackburn Rovers). The union of the two shirts created Sampdoria's shirt. The shield with the red cross is Genova's symbol.

Italy's blue shirt is because the Savoia reignant family colour was blue.
