My favourite United kit: away shirts
Last week saw the launch of ‘United Kit Revisited’ - a celebration of all that is great and good about Manchester United kits.
The online exhibition contains many never-before-seen artefacts from our museum, while we explore the history of United’s first-ever colours, hear from a former Reds skipper on his all-time favourite jersey and much more.
We’ve also encouraged you, the fans, to get in touch and share your memories and pictures of United jerseys from over the years, through our Memory Vault.
With everyone else detailing their most-loved kits, we thought we’d have a go, and our writers have selected which United home away is their favourite...
Ben Ashby, Editor, Inside United: "Probably like a lot of people, I struggle to nail down one United kit as a favourite. There are so many that I like the look of or have specific memories of. But I definitely have a penchant for kits of the late-1970s and early/mid-1980s. I really fancy the away shirt we wore in in the late-70s because I like the unusual positioning of the adidas stripes, running off-centre down the front, and I've always gravitated towards our white and away strips. There's a cool variation on it that came in in 1980, when the stripes were run up the flank and under the arms.”
