Five of the best Man Utd home kits in the Premier League era
It was hard to match the beauty of the previous home kit ahead of the 1998 season, but Umbro pulled it out the bag again. Retaining a chunky collar, with the manufacturer pattern along the sleeve and detail of the black & white stripe across the chest, the 1998/2000 was marvelous. You can buy our sock interpretation of the design here.
The 90s were a brilliant time for United, both for the football they played but also the kits they wore. The gradient pattern sleeve and oversized collar were glorious on the 1996/98 shirt.
After Nike ended their 13-year partnership with United, Adidas announced a 10-deal that would start from the 2015/16 season. The three stripes of the German giant, chunky white v-neck and simple block red colour were a match made in heaven.
Though the Umbro kits of the 90s showed that noisy kits can be great, many of United’s best home kits have kept it simple. The 2007/09 shirt is the perfect example, only spicing things up with a white vertical stripe down the back.
Whilst this shirt didn’t quite make our list of the top lace collar kits, missing out to the green and gold version of the same design, the home version is comfortably one of the greatest in Premier League history. The 1992/94 shirt was Umbro’s first as kit manufacturer after Man Utd switched from Adidas. The double win in the 1993/94 season certainly helped cement the kit in the hearts of United fans.
