John Devlin, the authority on football kits, analyses and evaluates the home, away and third kit designs of the top football-playing nations, detailing when the strip was worn, who wore it and the important matches in which it featured.
This carefully curated collection features more than 1,300 never-before-published artworks, and describes the changing styles, varied manufacturers and remarkable controversies of international football fashion over the last 50 years.
