Kit Parade: Manchester United’s 1950s kit


11th, February 2008

The club ditched its crest and the logo of sponsors AIG to remember the Busby Babes killed in the crash on February 6, 1958. The shirt – modelled here by Cristiano Ronaldo – is not going on sale to the public so any United fans wanting to recreate the look will have to buy retro or try the Fredi Kanoute approach and tape up the sponsor’s logo.
