Just over a year ago, we did a Manchester City/Hummel mid-1985s crossover.

Out of the replies to that came a request to do City in an early 90s Arsenal look, which you can see here, and it’s the three stripes we’re returning to today.
Back in July, Jordinho came up with a good idea – apologies for only getting to it now – of mixing City with Liverpool’s 1995-96 template:
While white socks wouldn’t be our first choice – navy is our preference, probably because that’s what City had in our early days watching football in 1990-91 – but City’s last kit with Umbro before moving to Kappa had white sets.
They were of course relegated in 1995-96 – that surely wouldn’t have happened if they’d had adidas.
