St Mirren are a most venerable old club and released this shirt to make sure everybody else knows it. The shirt is a call back to the club's original colours back in the 70s and 80s, the 1870s and 80s that is. The club only played in these colours for a few years before adopting the black and white colours originally in hoops and then the iconic stripes in the mid 1880s. There are countries with shirts in this collection which didn't even exist then, quite a lot of them when I come to think of it. The shirt is nicely done although the original shirt in the 19th century had narrower hoops and didn't have the badge. Or the embroidery round it. Or the Diadora sponsorship.
