These adidas catalogue pages from 1976 are a confusing affair, as one alternates between laughing at how dated items look - understandably - bemoaning others’ unavailability in 2020, and wondering how the German giants could have been so ahead of their time 44 years ago.

The rugby jersey, the rainsuits and the men’s athletic vest are easily timeless enough to be fantasised over, and whilst the leisure suits scream the 70s, the navy and green vertical stripes t-shirt and the allover print example - in 1976! - can only be placed in sportswear history through their coupling with potential guilty pleasure shorts.

Providence City FC have released their 2020 “Good Night Lights” Home shirt, by Inaria.

The Ocean State Soccer League side, based in Rhode Island, have released the striking shirt as a tribute to the “Good Night Lights” tradition, started by cartoonist Steve Brosnihan, of Providence’s people - including businesses - flashing lights to wish the children of Hasbro Children’s Hospital a good night - with many of the children reciprocating with torches.

Mexican giants Club América have released their new, 2020-21, Away kit by Nike.

The design, which nods to versions from the past - the 1980s and early 1990s in particular, when “Los Cremas” became the “Águilas del América” - features a white yoke dropping to a point on the lower part of the shirt, on a navy base. The central section is flanked by tricolour flag-style details in blue, red and yellow and the whole effect is replicated on the reverse.
