A brilliantly simple request from Top Corner Shirts, the kind that you’d think would surely have come up in the previous four years:
@museumofjerseys how about a swap around of the kits for England and Scotland for Italia '90, Euro 92 and France '98?

Because England had the same shirts for Euro 92 as they had had at Italia 90, we limited this to the two World Cups – Scotland’s 1992 shirt was of a different design vintage too, so a straightforward swap was easier for 1990.
The 1998 switch might have been a bit more of a head-melt had Scotland not got new shirts for the tournament as they, like England, had released a new kit in the autumn of 1996 using the same cut and collar style. However, they brought out a new one for France whereas England kept what they had – not until Euro 2012 would they have a ‘new’ home shirt.
