Description

In Picking Up The Threads, John Chandler has assembled an eye-opening, well researched yet agreeably light-hearted look at the weird and wonderful stories behind the history of 150 teams’ football strips, and how clubs came to choose their characteristic kit. The whys and wherefores will provide any kit aficionado with near endless pub quiz ammo!
