Hey Mero, just a small error I found on the website. You've said that Richmond wore the same jumper for heritage round in 2005 & 2006, which is mostly true apart from a couple of small differences.

This is the 2005 jumper which was made by Concept Sports and features the tiger head on the collar.



And here is the 2006 jumper, made by hummel, with the manufacturers name written across the colour.



And for good measure, a couple of pictures of the 2 jumpers next to each other in the Richmond FC Museum.

I came across this recently Mero . Doesn't quite match the version you've got on the website.

Know anything about it?
From what I've found the NM was of varying sizes on each jumper.
I went with the one above based off a photo of North in the era, with the NM that size.
The one Keith Greig modelled in the 70s was likely not an original (60+ years old) and was a replica based on some sort of description of the jumpers.

Mero serious q. When did the idea that everyone on the same team must wear exactly the same thing become generally accepted?

I mean you see stuff as late as the 1920s in team pics with stripes of various shapes and sizes or logos all kinds of approximate in specifics

At some point ‘black and white stripes’ just meant that; nobody was getting the tape measure out on the jumpers your nan knitted specifically for you to play in. “Sorry nan, no good, pinstripe needs to be 30px not 40 and also you missed the gradient below the G” was not a thing.

No doubt that continued for many years at local level, too (even now you still see some people running around in clubbies wearing random now-defunct designs pulled out of the bottom of a bag for fill-ins).

Even in the early 1970s Hawthorn players were wearing different striped jumpers.
In their case players got one jumper and that lasted them their career.
You also see pic of Geelong players wearing the 1979 socks in 1981 & 82.
However, I'd probably say the same era, early 70s, is the last time teams didn't get the jumpers provided by the apparel supplier.

Would the exception to this be lace up jumpers? Watching an old Swans/Collingwood game on youtube from 1985, it was noticeable that width of the Magpies stripes differed, as well as the lace ups worn having a distinct number panel, whereas the non-lace ups worn had none.

Lace-ups would be the same, most players wore the acrylic jumpers handed out by the club.
My understanding is that players could buy a lace-up and the club would put the number, and the VFL and sponsor logos on it for them.
In almost all cases more players wore the club issued jumpers than the lace-up jumpers.
In that way they are a variation that a minority of players wore in some games.

something else i wanted to ask about was this one:

I was just wondering where you sourced the design from. the only picture i've been able to find of this jumper is this one:

1570932217876.png


and the NMFC monogram looks a bit different. would you just put this down to inconsistency between jumpers?

No, probably not this one

Mostly I do requests.
What shower curtain do you want?
I'm now a homeowner and have no need for shower curtains anymore, but saw it was a design that can be done on red bubble and thought it was funny.
