Football shirts don’t get too much more iconic than - while we’re sure we’ve used that phrasing before - the style worn by Porto-based Portuguese side Boavista Futebol Clube.
It featured a whole load of different approaches but the famous chequerboard effect was the theme throughout, either amplified or played down.
kunto put together a mind-bending optical illusion - nope, the pattern isn’t wavy - while ArmorKuma decided to play with the pattern as a sublimated ghost print/jacquard alongside a traditional effect on an under-neck panel.
The approach from HiK4L got us thinking the black-and-gold football shirts shouldn’t necessarily be put out to pasture yet and OTHYcreative used that colour combination alongside white to create something truly spectacular - and the pattern on the cuffs actually is wavy in that case.
The members really are playing 3D chess. wuodek went with a Trefoil’d-up shirt that brought to mind those misleading Croatia leaks (and the bona fide range) from a couple of years ago, while winner Corinth used the branding of current supplier Kelme on a black Away with tonal patterning nodding to a ribbon effect we’ve seen used before.
