This classic shirt, most likely manufactured by Admiral, had been worn for a number of seasons, with its final outing for the duration of the 1973/74 season. Numbers on the shorts shown here getting a rare outing - more often than not they were blank.

This replica shirt by Toffs is described as being from '1974-77' which is a bit innacurate, as is the design. It's a nice looking shirt, and the addition of the badge shows a touch of artistic design - it was never on the original.

Numbers on the back of the shirts also seemed a bit of an afterthought - sometimes on a white background, which always helps. Replicas of the shirts were available to buy in the QPR Clubshop for £2.60.  

The splendid away shirt - shown here on display at Loftus Road after the visitors, Leicester City, only brought their white away kit to the game.

Admiral manufactured the shirt but didn't always see fit to have their emblem on display. The 'QPR' lettering was a nice touch, though not representative of the official badge - probably too much embroidery work!

Later on in the season a third kit was introduced - yellow shirts with blue shorts. The shirt was identical in design to the red one and photographic evidence only exists of it being worn once - away to Coventry City.

Yellow in colour, made by Uwin. Currently residing with a collector in Australia. 


  1. Pretty sure they were all made by Umbro

  2. I would agree with Martin 63 Umbro tended to do more at that time.

    Just discovered the site. Great work. You should be very proud

  3. I just got a yellow 73/74 kit - looks original too..... if you want colour pics let me know

  4. I have a red away shirt (match worn, no. 16) and it was made by Bukta. My guess is shirts with the Admiral badge were made by Admiral and others (without any badge) were made by Bukta.
