    Hibs retro tops

    Saw this on the toffs website have we ever had a badge like it? Looks more like a Celtic badge?

    Bought that, it's crap. Literally a green polo with a poorly stuck badge on it. Like something you would have made at School.

    Its about time the club shop done classic shirts like the 70's white crewe neck and sleeves with coloured cuffs and no badge. Id love one in emerald green and another in bottle green (the current badge would of course be acceptable)

    Was hoping to find a good white one .

    I think crest is genuine and I'm sure was either a blotter stamp used on club correspondence or appeared on a silver plate to commemorate a victory in clubs earliest days. I'm told the obelisk refers to St Patricks burial place in County Armagh which would tie in with the clubs St Patricks church origins. Maybe Brog or some other club historian can confirm if that's correct ?

    Surely the club could commission some retro tops. Definitely a demand for them from the older fans.

    Apparently the old shamrock badge shown above was a Hibs badge. Been told that information from two old Hibee veterans.

    Is there not a 70s style top in the shop with just HFC as the badge?

    Could be I've not been in the store since the Ranger's game. But the only classic top in the club store that I remember seeing last season was the top part of a set of pyjamas. That was the only top resembling a classic \ retro shirt. Will need to take a look on Thursday

    got the green bukta George Best era top from Toffs an fun itís spot on

    Got a rugby type top bout 7-8 years ago with that badge on it. Was bought for me as a pressie. Still got it and great quality. However Iíve not found any info about the badge, did lots of internet searching and nowt which makes me think itís a DIY job.

    Aztec Retro make really good retro tops. Normally sell out pretty quickly so worth a follow on twitter for new releases.

    Unfortunately they've made poor choices as to which ones to manufacture imo

    That badge is honking but it would be nice if they chose to make one of the Adidas tops

    Opinions. I far prefer that badge to the Adidas beer bottle one (I assume thatís what strip you mean). Although the 91 away strip is a thing of beauty.

    I bought one and returned it, a crappy polo top with a stitched on logo where the machine mark was left on it, stuffed into the thinnest of packaging, £29.99 + £6 postage and packaging, they got it back and I got all my money back including post and package, steer clear.

    They might not have the rights to copy / replicate Adidas probably would if they did

    Donít think they have any rights. All tops are shipped from Thailand. Umbro wonít be getting a sook.

    Badges were only sewn on for big occasions like cup finals in those days. The HFC definitely appeared at the 1972 cup final v. Celtic. I've not seen many other pictures from that era, or earlier when Hibs had a badge on their strip. Very few clubs wore a badge week in week out.

    Yup! Only time HIBS had HFC as a badge was 1972 Scottish Cup Final
