British sportswear label Admiral Sports is paying homage to ’80s football fan culture with a new collection titled “The Team Dressers.”

The line includes a bevy of updated takes on the brand’s archival silhouettes that were spotted off the pitch at the time. In a statement, the brand wrote, “As sportswear innovators, Admiral Sports led the charge in the rapid development of football clothing worn for non-sporting purposes, playing a large part in outfitting youth culture for the best part of the last 50 years.” Here, the brand celebrates that legacy with contemporary renovations on some of its most-loved styles.

Some of the standout silhouettes include track tops with “repeat tape” donning the brand’s iconography lining both arms, as well as the Harcourt hoodies, which house a raised chest logo with a heavyweight construction. The signature “repeat tape” frequently appears throughout the range, landing on the arms of Alton sweatshirts and Bardon T-shirts alike, while embroidered iterations of the label’s storied motif emblazon additional, archive-referencing top offerings.

Arriving ahead of the Euro 2024, the collection is done up in a range of classic football team colors, including those for West Ham to England and Coventry to Manchester United.

Admiral Sports’ “The Team Dressers” collection is now available to shop on the brand’s webstore. Explore the line in the gallery above.
