More Than Just A Shirt

by Neil Sherwin

German side St. Pauli celebrates its 100th anniversary this year and is releasing a special commerative shirt to mark the occassion.

A century in existence is a massive cause for celebration, and Bundesliga team St. Pauli are releasing three shirts to commemorate the milestone.

As an added bonus for fans, they will only have to pay for two shirts to own all three as the home and third come together in the form of reversible design.

The copper home shirt is striking enough, but it is the reverse which really stands out as it incorporates images and slogans from the club’s past, including the famous ‘Hamburg Ist Braun Weiss.

The white away shirt, in stark contrast, is simple but effective with a 70s style collar.

Of course, they aren’t the first to come up with a reversible shirt. Both Manchester United and Chelsea have done so in the not too distant past, while 1860 Munich had their own version last season.

St. Pauli has also released a short video (see below) where you can see some of the fine detail.

The  shirts, manufactured by Do You Football, are available for purchase from the club’s online store.
