good thursday and happy morning, hoddlers.

We can all agree that Tottenham’s sash kit is iconic, right? You know, the one with the sash.

That was a good year, and Harry Kane looks so young in their promotional spots.

And in the spirit of home kits being revealed this week, I wanted to take a moment to appreciate a club that will be donning the sash next season: Stoke City.

Now that is a sash. And a button-up collar? Hot damn!

It looks like Stoke City are throwing it way back to the 70s with this retro kit

Stoke are known for playing in their trademark red stripe kits - they even won the 1972 FA Cup in them. But vertical stripes have nothing on a diagonal stripe, because a diagonal stripe is a sash.

Plus it’s a very clean-looking kit. The sponsor’s colorway blends in nicely with the sash colours, the manufacturer’s logo does not conflict with it and Stoke even have a handsome looking throwback crest in the upper-left chest.

That white sash is one of two away kits for Stoke this coming season - the other being a clean black kit featuring an embossed pattern of the “Fetty Cross” (from the city’s coat of arms).

And here’s the best part of the kits (other than the sash): Fans have the option to purchase the kit with or without the sponsor.

The shirts come out to £48.00 with or without the sponsor, but nixing the sponsor from the shirt really makes the sash look even sashier. It is a great away kit.
