Fantasy Kit Friday, 28-7-17
A nice confluence of events for today’s addition to the FKF canon.
Daniel Gellatley is a top-notch graphic designer – he must be if Simon Shakeshaft uses him for images relating to The Arsenal Shirt like this one…
The very cluttered 1966/67 season when The Arsenal actually wore an amazing number of different kit combinations, here's 10 we know of #afc pic.twitter.com/bvc1a1D5uI

…and he’s also responsible for the kit graphics on UnitedKits.com. We were delighted, therefore, when Daniel got in touch with a Fantasy Kit Friday suggestion. With Barcelona’s new home shirt employing stripes of various width, he came up with this idea to create a similar effect:
@museumofjerseys #fantasykitfriday idea:- Barcelona home in the style of their 2004-05 away

And here it is. In 2004-05, Barca’s socks were actually the reverse of below, but we felt that the extra red on the shirt, compared to the real one, had to be balanced.
And then Daniel had another idea:
Can you make another one based on the 04-05 Juve away. Same design but both sleeves and sides are one colour with that swoosh on the sleeve

And we were happy to accommodate that request too, with the original socks restored.
Which do you prefer? Let us know on Twitter, @museumofjerseys.
