Fantasy Kit Friday – Chelsea in adidas, 1994
We must admit that we weren’t exactly sure what Chaz_CFC meant when he asked for a Chelsea version of the adidas mid-90s ‘poncho’ design, but then it became clear:
This one, think a couple of other sides used it too. The ones you’ve sent are absolutely amazing though pic.twitter.com/yhKQgbHirx

We were happy to oblige, though perhaps some Chelsea fans – unaware of the large part red has played in their history – may not approve.
Chaz didn’t ask for an away, but we couldn’t resist reworking the infamous graphite and tangerine strip in the style of the Republic of Ireland 1994 away.
Views – good and bad – are always welcome.

The tangerine and graphite is a triumph, much better than the umbro original effort, however the home version is…. uuuuuurgh… and I like Chelsea’s red kits! Never a fan of the German version to be honest.
Guess croatian jersey would look like that.
How about trying it with the mid 90s adidas template used by Liverpool, Norway, Romania etc.?
i always liked that graphite and tangerine top ….somehow it works better in adidas
Put the sock turnovers through 90 degrees and run them down the side of the shorts. That would complete the job nicely. Shame Chelsea have switched to Nike, I would have pushed for this one to be released.
I have many Chelsea shirts dating back to 1981 including the tangerine and graphite that my wife bought me when we were first together. It’s hideous and my least favourite shirt but I have to say the Adidas version produced here is brilliant and very tasteful.
The home kit is striking but i wouldn’t have liked it.
