There's a north-eastern company that has sold old time football shirts since 1990. They've become rather well-established internationally and other firms have subsequently jumped on the bandwagon. The noughties was a boom time for sales in the UK. A fair few people prefer to buy older designs than the contemporary designs, especially given the tendency to annual kit changes in recent times.
