^ Proof that folk from Aberdeen are hard as nails when it comes to the weather...

My first thought when I looked at the link was.. "ohhh long sleeves... cosy" :greengrin

This was my first Hibs kit too. I recall this being purchased with the shorts and socks also. If my memory is correct i was after a no 7 to be stitched on and we visited at least 6 shops without success, ended up with a no 5 instead. Which again, if my memory is working George Stewart was the holder of that number at the time.

Being from outwith the capital growing up in Perth I was the only lad running around in the glorious green, I got used to some abuse which I still get now.

I have a collection of strips in the house from the 80's onwards.

The 'bukta' one was always a fav.

As did I. Loved it. I remember not long after i got it, before primary school one morning changing out of normal school clothes round the corner from house & putting on the full purple shiny tracksuit & going off to school proud as punch. The teacher must have wondered what the hell was going on but i'm sure i would have won 'world cup' in the playground that lunchtime.:greengrin
Happy days. :agree:

Going to get one of those strips also as also my first strip.:agree:

As an owner of an original, I can second this.

The home top is the wrong green as usual.

The mists of time have clouded my recall somewhat but am I right in thinking that this was the home strip for television?

Something about not allowing sponsored shirts on the box. Effectively we were the first to have 4 (including a yellow version) distinct strips in the one season.

Anyone got a picture of the original, not under floodlights and soaked in sweat (which would obviously look darker)? Sure someone here had a pic of the home and away on coat-hangers. Would be nice to compare them to the new ones. :agree:

Totally agree. I've havered on about it for years. Sometimes wonder if I just imagined it all, even tried to get them to bring back purple as an away colour :agree:

It's probably my ageing eyesight but the purple appears affy (brace yourselves) blue on the Toffs website.

Doesn't matter, am getting one, that'll be my new top for 2012/13.

Didn't they make a film about the away matches that season? Think it was called The Color Purple (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Color_Purple_%28film%29) :greengrin

:thumbsup: That purple one looks great with the yellow detail on the sleeve.

Not a fan of retro tops that aren't endorsed by the original manufacturer as it feels like there's something missing so its great to get something that looks like the original.

No doubt there will be a few of us preparing to explain away an 80 hole in the bank balance!:greengrin

Thanks for the memories. That was my favourite top, the one without the advertising logo.


Oh and the score at that game was 2-1 Hibs, with Rae(I think) scoring the winner with a 20 yard thunderbolt. :thumbsup:

Something about not allowing sponsored shirts on the box. Effectively we were the first to have 4 (including a yellow version) distinct strips in the one season.

I was thinking. Was the purple strip what was known as "the TV strip", it didn't have the word "Bukta" on it. I also think the sponsors logo (one of the first in British football" is too big. IIRC Tom Hart made big play on the fact that it was less than 10 inches high, meaning it met the SFA's criteria at the time.

I've got a green beauty on order too, also ordered a month ago and got this response from Toffs:-

"the first batch of these are in production at
the minute and will cover your order,
it should be back in stock and
despatched in around two weeks. If
we can do anything else to help
please advise."



that was almost 2 weeks ago, so should be here next week.
