  1. Brilliant as always, and one that makes you think ‘what if?’ and reminds us that when they can be bothered, the bigger brands can create great designs. With that in mind…..

    Like many of my age, I loved the Danish side of the 80s and early 90s. Their Hummel kits were part of their attraction, and I’m still obsessed by the brand today. However, what if there was no Hummel and they went with another German company during that time. Obviously, Adidas created some fairly regulation kits, but they did also have some crackers. So is there any chance of seeing how Denmark would’ve looked at any of the three tournaments I remember them most for? One of:
    1984 Euro Champs, but in adidas’ iconic French kit, rather than their Arsenal-like attire.
    1986 World Cup, but in adidas’ French kit, rather than the brilliant halved kit
    1992 Euro Champs, but in adidas’ German kit.

    Would be interesting to see if the kits are as memorable or attractive, even when using an Adidas famed design.


    1. GiG are a toy company based in Florence and would often get the rights to distribute Japanese manufacturers’ wares in Italy. They got the Transformers licence from Takara and as you may have guessed, were the official Italian licensee for Nintendo during the 90s.
