Percival has teamed up with Classic Football Shirts to create nine unique pieces for an exclusive collection – some of which capture iconic football moments in intricately detailed embroidery.
The collab comes at just the right time as Percival has released a new football-inspired SS22 collection.
Classic football shirts are well known for selling retro and match-worn kits, making it a perfect collaboration. Be warned though, the exclusive nature of these shirts means there are only a limited number available – so act fast because once they’re gone, they’re gone.
Here’s a look at some of the pieces you can buy in the collection.
Eric Cantona’s infamous kung fu kick on a fan is football legend. It certainly wasn’t something you saw in every game. Cantona being the quirky character that he is, this is an embroidery piece depicting the story on a heather gray hoodie.
When Jose Mourinho left the Premier League, he left many characterful moments for football fans. Percival could have picked a number, but they opted for the drinks episode when the Portuguese manager picked up and slammed a case of drinks.
The robot celebration is synonymous with former England international Peter Crouch, which has been embroidered in detail on these track pants. The cotton blend will be a soft and cozy addition to any wardrobe.
The embroidery on the Bale shirt is a tribute to the spectacular cycling kick Gareth Bale scored in the 2018 Champions League final against Liverpool. The Wales international came on as a substitute to lift Real Madrid’s third consecutive trophy in the competition.
Fights between opposing players have been seen many times in football, but seeing two players from the same team came as a shock. That’s what happened when Newcastle players Kieron Dyer and Lee Bowyer fought on the pitch in 2005 – an infamous moment in football history.
There’s a racing theme to these cotton sweatshirts, and that’s the fact that Percival has chosen quirky football characters. Mario Balotelli is undoubtedly one of them. This sweatshirt represents this famous “Why always me?” moment he had while playing for Manchester City.
Going for that Zinedine Zidane header moment in a France shirt would have been pretty obvious. But why portray Zidane for his worst times on the pitch when there have been plenty of good times? Including his famous volley goal against Bayer Leverkusen, which is Percival’s pick on these navy track pants.
The embroidery on this T-shirt tells the story of when Paolo Di Canio took out his frustration on the referee after receiving a red card. Paul Alcock’s push led to Di Canio being handed an 11-game ban. Another amazing moment in football that you can now wear on a tee.
Percival has teamed up with Classic jerseys to create three limited edition football shirts – Percival Ramen Ya!, Blimp Tours and The Players Club. The Ramen Ya! The shirt is available in yellow and white, with a fun illustration of ramen as the focal point of the design in the center of the shirt.
The Blimp Tours soccer jersey has a basket weave pattern that makes up the indigo blue jersey. As the name suggests, the focal point of the design is the airship artwork, with Umbro sponsoring the shirt. The classic 80s v-neck stitch on the shirt is a major throwback to the retro style of the era.
