Hi John, i sell Football prints in my spare time including Dave Shields Stadium photography. I love your work and wondered if you can do an A3 Leicester City kit history print for me to sell. I am based in Leicester and i am sure it would sell really well.
Espero que puedas ayudarnos. Somos de Argentina y tenemos una web basada en “La historia de las camisetas de Tigre”, equipo que milita actualmente en segunda y que hace un año fue campeón de la Copa Superliga 2019, y de casualidad llegamos hasta acá. Queremos consultarte si hay manera de comprarte el editable para que podamos hacer nuestros diseños igual a este por ejemplo http://www.truecoloursfootballkits.com/2019/03/10/ipswich-town-home-kit-1981-84/.
Esperamos respuesta y que puedas ayudarnos ya que tu trabajo nos parece fantástico!!!
Felicitaciones y saludos cordiales
Is it possible to buy a print of your drawings of the German football kits that would have been included in the International Football Kits book but weren’t due to copyright issues please? I have all three of your books and would love to get these to go with them. Thank you.
I’m hoping you can help me out with an SAFC print that I’ve seen online that seems to be unavailable to order. I believe it’s a print you have produced as it has a True Colours logo at the bottom. I’m after an A3 copy of the print that has the lyrics to ‘Wise men say’ over a red and white striped background. Would it be possible to buy a copy of this print from you?
If you could let me know that’d be great

Fellow footie fan, writer and journo who recently (as in this afternoon) watched the ‘Get Shirty’ documentary.
Twas super-engaging and super-nostalgic. Even though as die-hard (Manchester born) Red Devil I remember the ’76 FA Cup Final as if it was yesterday.
My little claim to fame is as the creator of a would-be comic book/animated series called ‘Nutmeg,’ imagining the first female to play in the men’s game and our terrific art team had fun creating some imaginary kits for our main character, Louise Sage.
I’m about to follow on Twitter and it would be cool to keep in touch.

I have a website. It’s about the colors of sports teams. At the moment, about a thousand teams are represented. Maybe you will be interested in some kind of cooperation? Backlink exchange or whatever.
Have a nice day!
Got a question nagging me in my head that you might be able to answer.
What’s the least common colour in english football (green?) and the other side of the same coin, what’s the most common (red?)?
hello Mark – thanks for your message. I think green is generally accepted to be the least popular colour in English football, possibly due to the fact that grass is green and therefore there is not such good ‘stand out’ of colour, but also as it is regarded as an unlucky colour, Curiously, it is very popular in German domestic football, and in fact is a corporate colour of the DFB. Red or blue is the most popular colour and research has shown that at least at club level, red is the most successful colour.
Hi there, I’m looking to answer at question that six year old daughter has asked me and I can’t find the answer anywhere, you’re my last hope! She wants to know why the club badge and maker’s logo are the opposite way round on shirts and shorts – badge on the left side of the shirt but is on the right side of the shorts. I understand that the badge is situated on the left of the shirts but can’t figure why this is reversed on the shorts? Any help you could give would be appreciated, this has got me really puzzled! Thanks
Hello Colin – thanks for your message, it’s a great question and one that I’m surprised doesn’t get asked more often. Basically on a shirt the club crest is generally placed on the left, over the heart. The manufacturers logo is on the right. On the shorts the manufacturers are keen to ensure that their brand is visible as best as possible, so if a photo is taken from either the right or the left then at least their logo will be seen on either the shirts or the shorts. Adidas went through a phase of putting their logo on the BACK of the shorts. Again, the theory was that when a player is facing the other way in a photo or on TV you will still be able to see their brand. Hope this helps! John
Thanks so much for the answer John, I should have guessed the answer would be commercial/financed based. I’ll now try to explain this to a six year old! Cracking website, keep up the good work! Colin
I love your International Football Kits book.
My questions relate to England kits: I see on ebay occasionally a third shirt type of the 1980/1982 Admiral kit in light blue as well as a navy coloured version of the Umbro Home 2001-03 shirt. Both – the sellers claim – are official third shirt versions that were never used. Neither of them feature in your International Football Kits book.
Are you aware of these shirts? Do you believe these shirts existed at the time?
Kind regards from Hamburg, Germany, Götz
Hi John, I design and print subbuteo box labels, had a request to do the Euros 2020/21 for boxes that will house all 4 teams, how much would it cost for 4 thumbnails, clear background of the 4 teams in Group D, Scotland, Croatia, Czech Rep & England so I can put them against the team names. Just need the tops front
We are starting on Group D but working towards all the teams in the finals.
It would be helpful if I could work with size on these kits, dont want them to dominate the box but to compliment it
Hi John, your 3 books and work for Backpass has always always been thoroughly enjoyed by myself, given the continuing rise in popularity of football shirts, football shirt history and your body of work, will you be producing another book in future? Like an omnibus of the 3 True Colours and alot of your other stuff?
Happy New Year Dennis, i just wanted to say i ve only just found this site ! i love it, just like Museum of Jerseys…..a great pool of interesting information, facts and pictures, so interesting for me and lots of other kit boffins out there….keep up the good work, just aquired one of your books too Regards Lee
