What are the best Manchester United retro shirts? Classic football shirts from the 60s? Since the debut of Sir Alex? Perhaps the pomp of the 2000s where they had some of the finest retro Premier League shirts ever? There are so many choices.

Retro shirts are, in the opinion of many fans, the best football shirts available. And of course Premier League sides and European giants are releasing new shirts – heck, World Cup shirts and Women’s Euro tops are coming soon – but why not dive into the past when you looking to buy something new?

Here’s our pick of the best old United shirts around, featuring some of the greatest the Premier League has ever seen…

1. Manchester United 1958 Home Shirt

1958 was a transformative year for the club for all the wrong reasons. From this year, Manchester United has become something strong, carrying the memories of those lost in the Munich air disaster.

The shirt United wore at this time was understated and the base from which the Red Devils would evolve aesthetically. This replica is a fitting tribute to the 50s look of United – who, let’s not forget, were a stunning football team.

In 1968, United wore blue to avoid clashing with Benfica’s red. In doing so, they created a legend.

This jersey has become one of the most iconic away jerseys of all time. It’s a lovely shade of blue and Toffs’ replica is a great version.

Towards the end of 2022, Adidas released this great shirt as part of a larger retro collection.

The 1990 home kit may not be one that many fans remember as a classic – especially compared to some of the tops of the 1990s that United wore countless pots – but look. This is a gorgeous shirt with a beautiful pattern.

High-end Adidas, that. They are right had to bring him back.

United reinvented this shirt last season – but somehow we think the original is even more warmly thought out.

The blue/white away jersey from the early 90s is one of the most famous away jerseys of all time. Adidas has cleaned up a treat on this one – and you can still find it online from time to time.

This shirt isn’t just a classic, it’s a political statement.

The green and gold of Newton Heath is used today to protest ownership. That particular color scheme may never be seen on a United shirt again – and those tops have since become gold dust.

6. Manchester United 1994 Home Shirt

The Red Devils went from boys to men with that red collar that Eric Cantona so nonchalantly picked up.

Still the definitive home jersey for many 90s kids, this one still pops up in the corners of Ebay.

United have always looked good in black. Black and yellow, by the way, are a fantastic color scheme.

This one has not been redone, but the original is still relevant. It is pure unfiltered Cantona.

One of United’s simplest and most effective away tops was the change-over option during the treble season – as if you needed to remember the picture.

Plain? Ordinary iconic.

The 2008 Champions League winner is another classic in United history. There are few details but the line running from the back to the number is instantly recognizable.
