Shit Kits: Leyton Orient’s Acclaim Home Kit, 1995-96

By Ollie Irish

Manufactured by Olympic – a guarantee of shitness, as I recall – this Orient ‘pixels’ home kit (the pixelated design was a nod to sponsors Acclaim) is a classic example of why the 1990s dominates any list of terrible football kits. That said, it’s something of a Marmite shirt and I’m sure there are some Orient fans out there who remember it fondly. Anyone?

Bonus points on offer if you can name any of the players pictured above.

    I never realised Michel Salgado played for them.

    Haha I thought Robbie Savage myself

    That’s not a shit kit at all, and I don’t think anyone’s said that except for whoever wrote this shitty article.

    It was a very cool idea to make the kit pixelated as the ad was for Akklaim, a video game company. Its a nice kit.

  4. SeanBCFC says:

    it looks like someone went and stabbed super mario (video game, not mcfc sod) and cleaned the mess with that top

  5. Mike Dale says:

    The top one is Glenn Cockerill. Saints fans dubbed him ‘Captain Crap’, for obvious reasons, during the early 90s

  6. neil says:

    Frank and Sam, are you over 18yo obviously not………

  7. Bazin Cazin says:

    the black fella looks like Sol Campbell

  8. Editor says:

    The three Orient players pictured are Glenn Cockerill, Ian Hendon and Kevin Austin. And the kit was as awful as the team of that particularly depressing period of the club’s history!

    Does a kit make you play better, even if the kit was top of the range would Orient play better and win more games.

    You must be off your rocker.. that is one of the best kits ive ever seen. It’s a thing of beauty
