  1. A twice as nice candidate would definitely be the Pony Hearts home top only worn twice, once against Red Star Belgrade in a European tie, and in the 1996 Coca Cola cup final defeat to Rangers.

    The original home was a tonally striped maroon effort with Pony logos throughout the fabric, but this was a plain, deep maroon effort that was and still is regarded as one of the best Hearts tops of recent memory. Sadly never went on sale to the general public though.

    Original kit can be seen here – https://www.edinburghnews.scotsman.com/sport/david-weir-recalls-last-time-hearts-won-two-derbies-one-season-easter-road-547789

    While the newer kit can be seen fairly well here – https://www.scotsman.com/sport/football/twenty-years-greatest-league-cup-final-ever-1461586

      1. None that Hearts ever confirmed Denis – it was certainly seen as a more traditional style top, but never seen again.

        The following home strip (by Olympic) was more in the style of the ‘two-off’ than anything too fancy.
