 The 1960s

Beginning around 1960, crew necks started to replace V-necks. Shirts became ever tighter, shorts became very short indeed and stockings were lightweight.

The Sixties was a period the modern "look" was for sleek and simplified design.  Simplified football kits stood out better under floodlights, which now became universal and allowed mid week games to be played at night. Coventry City were the first club to adopt matching shirts and shorts in 1962 (although all white kits had been popular as change colours and of course are Swansea's traditional kits).  The idea was taken up by Chelsea (1963) and Liverpool (1964) setting a trend that created a vogue for single colour kits and a great many well-loved traditional designs disappeared.  In the 1960s clubs started to wear numbers on their shorts for the first time
