Of course, just about everybody looking at this will see a different colour thanks to the wonders of monitor calibration (or lack of).

Exactly, and that’s why you need to rely on officially registered colours. I’m shocked at how bright that Everton shirt looks for it’s age, perhaps it was a spare and didn’t get much use.

I attempted to revive our classic hooped sleeve era in 2006. Time to pay it another visit at some point.

I have a particular fondness for it myself. I originally designed it as a full hoop with past and present players names sublimated onto the claret hoop. But sadly those elements never made it onto the final top. 

Excuse my ignorance. I always just assumed you were a fan that liked messing about on photoshop, have you in the past been the person responsible for designing the kits?

Correct I’m a long time fan who does graphic design and photography for a full time living. I have done this job for 35+ years.  However, I did win the 2006 design a Motherwell kit competition and my description was based on the original concept I submitted to the club for the competition. I was also involved in the production of the artwork for the Bukta made mid 1970’s white away retro top and provided historical advice on the shirt details to help make it as accurate as possible to the Admiral original. I was also commissioned to redraw the classic 60s/70s MFC monogram for our more recent retro 125 anniversary shirt. The monogram script is still being used occasionally on our kits and is something that I have championed on here for many years. I have also designed a few amateur kits in my spare time that have successfully gone into production. On a Motherwell related note I also provide the illustrations for the ‘Daft Laddie’ tee shirts produced by Well fan  Matt Johnstone.

Although not  involved with this seasons away top it is worth noting that it’s identical to a mock up that I created around a year and a half ago which I posted on here and on Twitter. The kit was a colour change that I suggested to a pre existing Macron shirt that I thought would look good converted to C&A. I can’t say whether my mock up inspired the powers that be to push ahead with that pre existing template, but I’m glad that I posted it as the finished shirt looks great in C&A. I even bought one at the weekend. :D
