Admiral x The Jam & The Style Council Football Kit

The latest Admiral collaboration brings together British institutions of both sport and music. The music of The Jam, and later The Style Council, influenced many of the great bands of the 90s and sparked the mod revival in the 70s and 80s. Concurrently, we were pioneering the modern football kit, producing the first ever replica-shirt, influencing shirt design to this day. These parallels have led to a unique piece of sport and music history symbolic of an era of creativity.

The Jam shirt is influenced by the famous 1982 England kit design. The blue colourway honours the third kit that disappointingly never made it onto the pitch at Spain ‘82.

“I love what Admiral have done with these shirts. Very cool” - Paul Weller

The crest design was inspired by an original 1980s pin badge, sourced from a The Jam fan club member. To further elevate the nostalgia the swing tag doubles as a keepsake designed to replicate the original gig ticket from the band's last ever gig in Brighton. Paul Weller’s DIY jumper on The Jam’s famous ‘This is the Modern World’ album cover is referenced with a subtle arrow detailing inside the neckline of the shirt.

Only 300 of The Jam x Admiral shirts will be made, with each shirt individually numbered on the lower front.

The Style Council Football Shirt

For The Style Council football shirt, we have used one of our famous 70s silhouettes with logos repeated down a raised sleeve tape, and a black and orange colourway used repeatedly by the band in the 80s. The stitched crest design is taken once again from an original 1980s pin badge and features both The Style Council name and a reference to the band’s EP, À Paris. ‘Internationalists’ is used on the front to celebrate the band’s Live Aid performance in 1985, arguably one of the greatest events in music history!
