Danish kit manufacturer Hummel were perhaps most heavily associated, in England at least, with the mid-to-late 1980s, particularly for their infamous half-and-half Aston Villa and Southampton shirts of 1987-89. They were propelled to unlikely success, however, when their home nation won Euro 1992 in famously unexpected (they hadn’t even qualified, initially, only getting to Sweden as a result of the breakup of Yugoslavia) circumstances.

The kit that Hummel produced for 1992 (used through to the end of 1994, as well) was a pretty quintessential one both for country and manufacturer – with its neat angular stripes across the shoulders that replicated the company logo without being too obvious about it, and the neat additional black trim on the shorts and collar. It’s undoubtedly the team’s success that sees it looked back on so fondly, but there’s a reason why more recent kits that deliberately ape it still look so good.
