Vintage Manchester United Shirts: The Most Iconic over the Years

Manchester United, one of the most successful teams in England and was once feared as one of the most intimidating teams in the world. Since Sir Alex Ferguson hung up his managerial boots, United have struggled to maintain the dominance they once had, but that doesn’t take away from their previous success and of course, their classic kits. With such a huge legacy, they needed some pretty statement kits to wear out on the pitch - and they did just that! Here’s a look at some of the most iconic Vintage Manchester United Shirts from throughout the years (in no particular order)!


Manchester United 1992/1994 Home Shirt

A contender for THE best Manchester United shirt of all time is the 1992/1993 home shirt - also worn during the 1993/1994 campaign. The entire design of this shirt is simply stunning and the laced open neck screams 90’s nostalgia. During the two-season campaign, Sir Alex led United to back-to-back Premier League titles. Cantona joined the Red Devils during the 1993/94 season from Leeds United for £1 million and massively boosted their chance of lifting the title. This shirt featured the likes of:


  • Mark Hughes
  • Dion Dublin
  • Steve Bruce 
  • Eric Cantona 
  • Paul Ince
  • Ryan Giggs

Manchester United 2004/2005 Home Kit

The 2004/2–5 season was United’s 13th season in the premier league and 30th consecutive season in the top flight. Although this season finished trophyless, there was one iconic moment which brought Manchester United fans years of joy - the signing of Wayne Rooney. In the summer of 2004, Rooney joined the Boys in Red for £25.6 million as a 19-year-old, 20 years on, he is the record goalscorer for United. Other than the golden boy signing, United watched a relatively disappointing season finishing 3rd in the Premier League, a League Cup semi-final loss, a shoot-out FA Cup final loss and a first knockout round defeat in the Champions League.
