  Headington United - between the wars, 1918-1940

There was little innovation in kit design during the 1920s.  During the 1930s several innovations to kit design appeared. The laced crew neck began to disappear in favour of collared shirts with a short fly (a style that was traditional in rugby union until quite recently).  In 1933 Herbert Chapman introduced a radical new look to the Arsenal kit incorporating contrasting sleeves and hooped stockings.

In 1939 numbers on the back of players' shirts were introduced although Chapman’s Arsenal had experimented with numbered shirts earlier. Stripes began to appear on the side of shorts for the first time towards the end of the decade. Shirts and shorts became more generously cut, giving rise to the baggy shorts reaching to the knee.
