Fantasy Kit Friday – Everton 1985, Wolves 1989

A two-for-one today, featuring some lovely mid-to-late 1980s nostalgia.

Everton have just entered into a deal with Hummel, bringing to an end their fourth stint with Umbro since the 1970s. In 1985, the Toffees were in the middle of their first spell with Le Coq Sportif, but Lord Brown wondered how they might have looked if they had been with Hummel instead.

Tottenham Hotspur’s first Hummel kits are used as the base, with the classic diagonally-lined style perhaps a better compromise than the large solid white block that LCS provided. The away is in the classic Everton yellow and blue colour scheme.

We fear that Gregor Smith has forgotten that he requested a Wolves adidas FKF from the end of the 1980s, given that it has taken so long for us to act upon it.

However, we hope that the finished article – home in the style of the 1989-91 Liverpool home and away based on the classic West Germany/Cork City style – will have made the wait worth it.

Feedback is welcome and you too can request an FKF – comment below or tweet us @museumofjerseys.

    The Everton change would surely have had yellow shorts as the Spurs version was all light Blue. Also, I think the home was all white, so should have been all blue.

      You’re right about Spurs Higgie but the FKF doesn’t have to exactly follow the pattern of the donor kit, just use the design. The Wolves away shouldn’t have stripes on the shorts either if it was to slavishly follow the West Germany one
