Awful. It may not be the worst away shirt we've ever had but it's definitely in the top 1.

Available up to size 4XL. 

 

Plunging V-necks look great with a beer belly on 40+ year olds looking to relive their youth........

Such bad memories of this shirt. 

Away at Everton 86? In the league cup getting turned over 4-0 and being sat by that smarmy faced Derek Hatton . 

Happy days

For some reason if you were about at the time you don't like this shirt usually but people that weren't tend to like it generally

Absolutely this. To me it has Ian Cranson connotations. Others I know seem to love it.

Couldn't agree more, it's the worst shirt ever for me too, but subjectivity is a funny old thing, some people actually like it.

I only buy shirts to upset the cool kids and @hirstyboywonder

 

You won't upset me mate, just that some of these shirts didn't look good when they were original, they ain't gonna look any better with 30 years more worth of waistline underneath them!

The problem lies with this kit not just in that it was a totally left field, garish combo of Ascot grey and puce. It presided over a period where we went from being FA Cup semi finalists and notional UEFA cup qualification candidates (but of course we were banned) and top 5 material to relegation dog meat in two years. 
I have very uncomfortable memories of watching us getting utterly rinsed at Goodison 4-0 twice. Those silky shorts were unfeasably tight on Lawrie Madden’s rear end. West, Cranson  and the others were not players we wanted to see after what we had built from 83-86. The 88-89 team reached a new level of ineptitude and was truly a relegation side. I loved Wilkinson but after this lot I never would have believed that he could build a title winning side. I always thought he could with us (honestly) until 86, but I was just a teenager.

 

The kit is a shocker in every regard and anyone who watched that era would not cherish it.

 

And the same goes for the thin striped Finlux home shirt followed.
