Badges & Logos

The reproduction error of club crest on the 1994 shirts was now corrected.

Home Kit & Away Variations

Long
sleeves

At first glance the home kits looked to have seen no changes, however, there were several subtle changes from the ‘94 kits.

The most obvious change was a new design of shorts, featuring twin flashes on either hip. The navy socks now featured the club crest embroidered on the shin.

The shirts differed more subtly. The previous seasons reproduction error on the club crest was corrected. The sponsors logo was positioned lower on the chest. There was also a slightly narrower yellow cuff on the short sleeved shirts.

Away Kit & Variation

Long
sleeves

A relaxing of the rules regarding kit colours saw many teams introducing darker colours, which would look good paired with jeans, thus boosting replica shirt sales.

Famously in 1995, Alex Ferguson ordered his Manchester United players to change out of their grey kit at half-time after they complained they couldn't see each other!

Oxford United also adopted a grey strip, featuring varying vertical and diagonal shades.

The yellow socks used with this kit were more plain than the alternative yellow socks used with the home shirts. These socks featured a subtle outline of the club crest embroidered on the shin, this nice touch was something that would be seen on all club socks over the next few seasons.

Third Kit

The ‘AC Milan’ styled change strip worn the previous season, were worn with a different colour combination of shorts and plain red socks. Although why this was deemed necessary to wear just once at Bristol Rovers is puzzling.
