By and large, Brighton & Hove Albion have been playing in blue and white stripes for well over 100 years – some 113 years to be exact.
In that time, only once did the Seagulls venture to extend their famous two-tone livery south of the waistband, and now we know why.
During the giddy halcyon days of the early 1990s, Brighton bashed out a home strip that coupled a stripy shirt with matching stripy shorts.
The results, as modelled here by Republic of Ireland international John Byrne, were decidedly questionable…
Oi, John. Andy Pandy called. He wants his pyjamas back.
