The goalsoul vintage 'hooped' jersey

Stunning long sleeved striped jerseys

Though football and rugby share some common ancestries, both have developed and split into two very two distinct and different pursuits. It is a commonly held assumption that the two sports were bound by an unspoken aesthetic agreement: Rugby jerseys would be identified with horizontal stripes, and football jerseys by contrast would traditionally have vertical stripes.

The truth is, distinguishing team colours and patterns has been a continuously evolving and changing entity throughout history. These include plain, stripes, hoops, halves and chequers as standard alternatives.

The term ‘rugby shirt' had been used ubiquitously to describe a traditional style of sport jersey consisting of five or six horizontal stripes or 'hoops' in alternating colour bands. Yet some of the world’s most iconic football team jerseys are intrinsically linked to this traditional style, Sporting Lisbon; Glasgow Celtic; Flamengo; Queens Park Rangers and Parma AC to name a but a few. 

This style of traditional jersey has, in numerous cultures, become a popular fashion item, and an essential part of any discerning football fan’s wardrobe.

Here’s our stunning interpretation of a historical piece of classic sport casual wear.

These vintage 'hooped' goalsoul jerseys are crafted in a medium weight woven cotton textile and features a set of horizontal stripe patterns, traditional canvas twill collar and ribbed cuffs.
