My Favourite International Shirts 20/21

Over the recent years the shirts on the international scene have just been getting better and better. I was never a fan of international shirts and weren't really bothered about purchasing them, it really was hit and miss on if I got one or not however, now more than ever I have been very tempted to add a few into my collection. 

So here are my favourite International shirts that have been released in the past year or so...


I have never been bothered about the Belgium shirt at all but for some reason this one is really drawing me in. I love the way the black on the front looks a bit like it is has had a paint brush waved across it. It works really well with the red and it is a stand out shirt without being too in your face like some of the previous International shirts that have been released. 


I would have had this in my collection by now if it was a bit cheaper as I just can't justify paying £70 for a football shirt these days. I would rather wait until it dropped in price although every time I do see it I head towards it and have almost purchased it a few times. For me I am a sucker for a shirt with a collar, but I also just love blue England shirts, in fact my favourite is the 1990 World Cup shirt but this is definitely a very close second. I love the bold blue with the red detailing and stripe down the side as it just makes it that bit different from previous years where we have had the red shirts. I think this is definitely going to be in my collection sooner rather than later.


I think I have had more Portugal shirts over the years than any other country just down to Ronaldo being one of my all time favourite players. I am absolutely loving the new shirt Nike have brought out for them this season as it is just a nice simple, subtle shirt with a nice collar. Some teams have just gone over the top lately with shirt designs but this is just nice and simple with a few bits of details on the sleeves and down the side that is nice and subtle. This shirt is just done right, not every shirt needs to be in your face sometimes a classic look stands out just as much. 


I would have had this shirt by now if I could find one with the 3 stars on for the USWNT but unfortunately I haven't managed to yet so it is still missing from the collection. I love the dark blue on this shirt mixed in with the hints of lighter blue and just a little bit of red thrown in on the side. The print just works well together and the shirt isn't in your face at all but is different to others. 


I have loved the past few France shirts that have been released but I think this one is my favourite out of them. Again it is just nice and simple with the red bold stripe going across the chest to bring a little stand out point without getting too in your face. I love the way it seems to have skinny hoops in the design which alternates between dark and light blue. 


Nike have been killing it with the Nigeria lately and there has been a lot of hype around the kits releases and this release hasn't disappointed. I think this might be my favourite one though as whilst others have been really in your face, this one is toned down just a little bit. I love how the badge is in the centre with the white background flowing down the centre of the shirt. The green print is running along either side of the white which for me just highlights the badge a little more. I also love how the green is in different shades on either side and has different prints. It is safe to say the Nigeria shirts are unique and I think that is why they appeal to so many people. I know I definitely want this one in my collection. 

So there you have it those are my favourite International shirts that have been released recently, I definitely want to try add these to my shirt collection soon and fingers crossed you will end up seeing them on Instagram if I do purchase them. What is your favourite recently released International shirt?

My Favourite Premier League Third Shirts 20/21

Carrying on with the favourite shirts this season series today we have my favourite Premier League 3rd shirts. To me teams 3rd shirts are fantastic as they let the club and kit manufacturer go a little crazy which we have certainly seen happen in previous years. This year some of the 3rd kits have been totally out there whilst others have toned it back a bit and gone for a classic look, so here are those 3rd shirts that made my favourites list....


Puma have smashed it with this shirt in my opinion. I love the purple and the neon colours on this shirt as they just work really well together. There is also a bit of a retro aspect to this shirt with the lined print in black on the shirt which is fantastic. The best part of this shirt is that it stands out without being too in your face. 


I love the colours on this shirt and I really love it when teams incorporate the salmon pink into their kits as I think it is a great colour which we don't see too much. This shirt is quite a subtle shirt and the small amounts of pink just give it that little bit extra, the colour of the actual shirt is fantastic too with it being a bit of a blended blue / green colour. 


Leicester seem to have gone for a classic white shirt with a really subtle print across their shirt, the faded grey lines just add something extra to the shirt without it taking away from the overall simplicity. This shirt is by far one of my favourites as Adidas haven't gone overboard and have added extra without taking away from the simplicity of the design. It works with the clubs classic blue as the stripes too as they are able to stand out on the white background the shirt provides.

West Ham

West Ham have definitely kept it classic with their 3rd shirt, just look at the classic black with gold and how it is subtle but makes an impression. Umbro for me are a massively underrated kit supplier and this shirt for me just goes to prove how underrated they are. This shirt reminds me of a colour way you are most likely to find on a pair of boots not a shirt in the Premier League but it works really well.

Manchester United

Now I remember when I first saw this shirt I just laughed and thought why would any fan want to buy a zebra print shirt. But honestly the more I see it the more it grows on me. I think it is just the fact it is so different and out there for the club that it took me a little by surprise at first but now it is definitely a shirt I would love to add into my collection in the future. 

So there you have it those are my favourite Premier League 3rd shirts for this season, what are yours?

My Favourite Premier League Away Shirts 20/21

Not only do we have some fantastic Premier League home shirts but once again the away shirts are also a great talking point with some fantastic designs. Some designs are nice and simple fitting in with clubs classic looks but some are totally out there and are certain standouts. So just like we did with the home shirts let's see what made my list of favourite Premier League away shirts...  


Honestly I never thought I would like an Arsenal shirt but this away one just looks fantastic. I love how the colours work well together and those red lines just add a nice detail to the shirt making it standout but not being too in your face. I actually loved this as soon as I saw it where as most shirts take some time to grow on me. 

West Ham

West Ham seem to have kept it nice and classic with their new away shirt with it simply being their classic claret and blue. The blue certainly takes centre stage on this shirt but is nicely broken down by the 2 claret stripes. I think I like this shirt is on the list down to how simple it looks. 

Aston Villa

Similarly to the West Ham shirt Aston Villa have gone nice and simple too and kept the shirt looking nice and clean. Kappa are another kit maker who are bringing out some great shirts lately and this is definitely a favourite of mine from them. I love the subtle stripes with the little bit of blue in terms of the badge, logos and that bit on the collar. 


I don't know what it is that makes me like this Chelsea shirt so much but honestly it is probably in the top 3. I think it might be down to just how different it is with the nice light blue with the different lines in different shades of blue to make up the pattern on the shirt. Again though it is just that big 3 sponsor on the front that makes me like it just a little less.

So there you have it that makes up my list of favourite Premier League away shirts. What are your favourites?
