  1. I wonder if the lack of ‘styled’ base layer was because manufacturers and regulators felt they wouldn’t be around much. In the late 80s, there was a fashion for lycra shorts underneath football shorts. (In my memory, Everton players seemed to have a certain predilection for them – combining blue undershorts with their white shorts.) After a couple of years (maybe it was only one year), regulation was brought in to ensure the lycra under short matched the colour of the main short. Maybe the manufacturers felt this would be a passing fad, but now they’ve been around for a while, maybe now they’ll look to make more bespoke options – I wonder how much they’ll retain for!!
