Brazilian clubs have worked out what a classic shirt looks like and adopted it en masse with many clubs using similar shirts. Tupi, who's home shirt is blessed black and white stripes, have gone for a Santos style away shirt with this one and it's a beauty. The badge is a traditional Brazilian badge and there's just enough trim on the shirt to stop it being boring. With the greatest possible respect to Tupi they aren't really known about outside Brazil and they've been knocking about the lower reaches of the Brazilian leagues (both national and state championships) since their founding in 1912. A decent quality shirt from minor manufacturer Gsport. A shout out is in order for my friend Bira who supplied this understated gem for the collection.
