Bukta today

Posted by John Devlin

bukta-logoOne of the more welcome football kit revivals in recent years has been that of Bukta.

In terms of history, heritage and British origins there are few sportswear companies that can compete with Bukta. In fact the firm are the longest established football kit apparel manufacturers in England, if not the world with some of their first kits adorning the backs of Nottingham Forest in 1884.

In 2005 the brand was relaunched and is beginning to make a real impact in the football kit scene once again. The 09-10 season will see the company supply kits for Millwall, Chesterfield, Dundee, Greenock Morton, Forfar Athletic and Brechin City. I hope to be able to reveal these brand new kits throughout the summer.

One of Bukta’s strong points is that they are providing bespoke kit for professional clubs rather than only having a few template designs to choose from a catalogue.

Bukta provided the side (who won the game against Glossop North End 2–0) with a bespoke kit for the final with 3,000 replica tops for supporters, turning this order around in three weeks and making the kits in the UK.

    the Milwall kits from 2007-08 were fantastic, and I loved the orange one that was worn this season. One of my favourite Mags shirts was the first Bukta kit they wore – while the white sleeves may not have been to everybodys taste, it sure looked classy.

    Yes, the 76 – 80 Newcastle Bukta shirts were great. Very nostalgic.

    We could do with some of that now!

    Hello John – just seen your comment! I love the Porridge film and am ashamed I have never noticed Bukta in it before!
