    Jerseys is something that's always caught me eye, I have decent collection of Celtic and Ireland ones and some don't fit me anymore but I'd never throw them out all the same. So what's your favourite strips from through the years? For me my all time favourite is 1988, it's a thing of beauty in my eyes, the crest we used for that season is the best one in my opinion. Unfortunately I don't have the replica (Without Umbro crest) just the one the club produced which is the next best thing. It's decent fit unfortunately the sleeves are huge and I do be swimming in it but whack a tracksuit top over it and it's all good. The away yellow one I have the sleeves are perfect fit so I don't know why that is. My close second would probably be a recent one and that is the third jersey from 2014/15 season with the green and gold stripe behind the crest. It's plain and simple and the colours go great on the plain white with green on the bottom of the sleeves. This season I'm mixed, I like the home but I hate the way the hoops break and don't go all the way around the sides, this is something that I think needs to be left alone each season, full hoops end of! Other than that it's decent. My favourite this year is the away. Anything to do with the Celtic cross is a huge yes for me (Similar to the 125 years one which is also class but mine has ended up more grey than white so it's starting to fade). The third this year is an absolute eyesore. Love the bumble bee colours but New Balance have absolutely made a bollix of the design and our form while wearing it is shocking. The bumble bee is an easy one to get right but New Balance really like to complicate things. Thoughts?

    I'll never not love the '95/'96 one that first appeared in the Scottish Cup win (Pierre van Hooijdonk netting the only goal).

    Thanks to @Marty McFly and his help in identifying tops, my favorite is the 2007 clean, Lisbon 40th anniversary shirts...

    Got the centenary top in the superstore today delighted to finaly get it. Id say it has to be the most popular of the older ones.

    I surprisingly liked that one meself. Reminds me a Anto Stokesy and Gary Hooper along with the green giant himself.

    Another nice one, would prefer the original replica though with the Umbro on it.

    Plain and simple can really be beautiful :34:

    Defo the number 1. Do you find the sleeves big on it?

    2012 home and away tops were my favourites ever, followed by the 1998 and 1996 home tops. Love the away top that @MagnificentSeven posted too.

    That tricolour on the sleeve of the away that year was unreal. I have the tracksuit top with the tricolour on the collar from that year too but the crest is practically invisible on it because it's black so it blends in. I don't have the limited edition one which I'm actively looking for

    What I love about them ones is that the sizing of the hoops are small. It seems to be they are getting bigger these days

    Same as meself with some of me older jerseys that drink spills on it or whatever. I'm a big fan of last year's but the gold material is *. It's starting to peel for me so I won't wear is as often as I'd like to unfortunately

    Sleeves on the score draw centenary top are massive. I had mine taken in by a seamstress for a more snug fit.

    The original did have baggy sleeves anyway mind.

    Think @packybhoy collects gear, he might be able to help you.

    I know the top you’re on about, it’s lovely.
