Shirt of the day: St Pauli, hummel, 2014 courtesy of Eldejo

Here is another Hummel classic from Eldejo.  This season’s St Pauli kit is one for the rebels.  

St Pauli, hummel, 2014 courtesy of Eldejo

The 2014-15 FC St. Pauli hummel matchwear is based on the concept of the club’s social platform, KIEZHELDEN, or “Neighborhood Heroes.” Visually the story was translated through the theme of “Hidden Heroes”, where heroes by nature do good anonymously and under the radar.

Therefore, all the details of the kits are “hidden”, only visible from a second glance, whether it be the glow-in-the-dark print under the home jersey collar, or the skull and crossbones print on the inside of the away jersey at the heart.

The graphics are in-your-face, inspired by the BOOMs and POWs of comic books, and shown in bright neon colors and we at the Football Shirt Collective think it is class.

Here are some other hummel articles we thought you might like:

Shirt of the day: West Ham, Adidas, 1985-87 courtesy of @wretchedascrisp

Who doesn’t like a side pin stripe.  We are receiving a lot of love for this season’s West Ham home kit.  Adidas have gone for the retro look inspired by the 1985-87 AVCO kit modelled here by Paul Goddard.

Here are some other West Ham kits we thought you would like:

Shirt of the day:  Stag Yellow courtesy of Nerea Palacios - iwanttoworkfornike

For those who don’t know about these guys. Nerea Palacios has crowd funded a campaign to design and create football shirts, designed by fans for fans.  

The Stag Yellow is one of a number of Game of Thrones tributes.  I for one think it is class.

Shirt of the day: Brøndby, Hummel, 2013-15 courtesy of @eldejo

We have said it once we have said it again, we bloody love Hummel at the Football Shirt Collective.  And what better time to celebrate the Danish kit makers then when Daniel Agger is heading home to Brøndby.

Here is a cracker designed by Eldejo. The 2013-14 Brøndby IF home matchwear celebrates the 10 championships won by the club with two stars above the crest, with each star representing 5 titles.

Brondby, Hummel, 2013-15

The design of the kits, from the cutting lines to the graphics, are inspired by the shapes of stars…on the front chest, the tips of two stars meet as two shades of blue and the bodymapped mesh inserts also take on star shapes. The jersey back references the stars and on the inside neck, every year of a title won is written on the neck tape. Below the tape is a star inspired graphic highlighting the partnership between Brøndby and hummel.

Shirt of the day: Sunderland, Hummel, 1991-94 courtesy of @philanderson99

Lets make something clear.  Very clear.  We love Hummel shirts on the Football Shirt Collective.  This Sunderland shirt from 1994 is another classic.  Simple design with the pointed black arrows on the sleeve.  Classic.

SHIRT OF THE DAY:  GERMANY, ADIDAS, 2000 COURTESY OF @ALEXEROBERTS

Another classic kit courtesy of Alex Roberts.  3 stars above the crest, green sleeves and a massive collar.  Even if it does also remind me Dietmar Hamann’s goal for Germany vs. England at Wembley.

Shirt of the day:  Sampdoria, Asics, 1994/5 courtesy of the Beyond Retro “Beyond the Terraces” exhibition

What an epic shirt.  Draw string collar, the badge, the colours.  As James Dart says it is "effortlessly cool".  This Sampdoria, Asics shirt is so nostalic.  It just brings back memories of James Richardson on Football Italia on a Sunday afternoon.

Shirt of the day:  Tottenham Hotspur, Hummel, 1990/1 courtesy of @Alexeroberts

We love Hummel kits on the Football Shirt Collective.  Denmark, Spurs even Real Madrid have all had shirts created by the Danish shirt makers.  And who can blame them.  Hummel kits are classic and often get a shout out in our “my favourite football shirt" pieces. 

This Spurs kit from Alex Roberts sums up all that was good about hummel.  Arrowed stripes on the sleeve, V neck collar and patterned polyester.  Quite frankly immense.

What happens when you combine Bayern Munich fan, Gerd Müller the Bayern training ground and a Michael Ballack shirt?  

You guessed it: a Gerd Müller signed Bayern Munich - Michael Ballack shirt.   The most Bayern Munich, Bayern Munich shirt ever.
