There are two things which I think of when I see red and black hoops. One is Dennis the Menace and apropos of nothing here and the other is Brazilian football. There are many clubs in Brazil with these colour, most famously Flamengo. Vitoria alternate from year to year between hoops and stripes and I have say I think I prefer hoops. Umbro have done a great job on this shirt. It's well made and a great example of the improvement in quality in South American shirt compared to the 1980s and 1990s. It's another shirt for which I am indebted to my good friend from Brazil, Bira.
