The Danish sportswear brand Hummel were synonymous with great football kits in the 1980s. One only has to think back to the exhilarating Denmark national side of Michael Laudrup and friends at the Mexico ’86 World Cup or the exciting Tottenham Hotspur team of Glenn Hoddle, Chris Waddle and Paul Gascoigne to remember how cool they looked out on the pitch.
In recent years, they’ve reverted to their classic look and feel – the trademark chevrons are definitely back! Their newer range of football shirts have been a treat for the eyes and none more so than the new St. Pauli 4th jersey.
Every hipster’s favourite team boast a fantastic retro 1970’s design in an off-white and chocolate brown colour made famous by the socially-conscious, politically left leaning Hamburg-based club.
The ST. PAULI 4TH JERSEY 2015 features the official St. Pauli club badge with the number 1910 – the founding year of the club. The jersey is made from a white cotton/polyester mix with contrasting chevrons, rib, collar and neck tape. And as always – a small waterprinted skull is hidden inside the neck! They are a limited edition available from the Hummel website HERE.
The bad news, if you’re after one, is that they’re going like hot cakes, and as someone who owns one, I can admit that they look and feel superb. If you get the chance – buy it! I have the long-sleeved version – very 1970s wing wizard with the generous sleeve length. The short sleeved version is also fantastic.
The material is light and breathable and gives you that stylish old-fashioned look. You will look and feel like the coolest fan you know with that instantly recognisable St. Pauli badge on your chest.
The St. Pauli 4th jersey is more great work by a resurgent Hummel.
