Classic Football Shirts


It all started back in 2006, when in our final year at Manchester University studying Management we had a brainwave. We should really have been revising at the time, but with the World Cup fast approaching, Doug had been really keen to get hold of an original Germany 1990’ shirt but with no success.

It was a huge co-incidence that we happened to just be chatting away at the time, as I had been selling a few things, including vintage shirts on Ebay in order to survive the last few months of uni. I guess it was luck that we both hadn’t figured out what to do after graduating, so from there we decided we would try and build a small collection of shirts in that hope that we could fill a gap in the market and launch a professional website in the summer.

By August we had picked up around 200 shirts, filling every room of a dingy student house and maxing out a few credit cards in the process. Fortunately my dad did the accounts for a web developer who helped us build and manage a website.
