A new collaboration from Japanese brands CityBoysFC and Shukyu Magazine has landed and it’s as impressive as ever. Three new t-shirt designs, all coming in either black or white and three new socks. We’re being spoilt.

Ronaldinho, Kaka and Andrea Pirlo all paid homage to this time around, featuring on these simple but very cool t-shirts.

Each sock features a different colourway with a brilliant design. The Japanese lettering on the socks is a favourite aspect of mine.

Peep the Shukyu site here.

CityBoysFC has been a brand I’ve favoured for a while now and I am a big fan still. I’m sure they’d love to have your support as well, so go check ’em out here and cop some gear. They’ve got some great stuff.



The 10th of the month is slowly approaching and TensClub has a new release for us all. Inspired by Edgar Davids, the brand releases a crewneck and a pin badge.

A cool ‘oatmeal’ crewneck featuring their take on the Total90 logo, Total TC alongside a Total TC pin badge. They styled it with some icy Total90 Netherland’s gear and the result is sick.

The sweatshirt is available exclusively in the 3/10 Tens Club newsletter:


Swedish side AIK based in the capital of Stockholm recently announced their new sponsorship deal with Nike, by releasing an eye-catching and rather exclusive pre-season kit. AIK has been sponsored by Adidas since 1988, and are now trying their luck with Nike. And it seems to be a match made in heaven.

AIK & Nike teased their fans on social media for weeks before dropping the kit, with cryptic videos and images of a blacked out team crest and captions such as ”Ett nytt år – en ny era” which translates to ”A new year – a new era”, and ”Det vi gör i år kommer att gå till historien”: ”Our actions this year will go down in history”.
Modest? Fuck no. Appropriate? Hell yes.

AIK is a sleeping giant in Scandinavian football, with overly presumptuous fans and players (even though they haven’t seen silverware since 2009). Expectations are huge every season, and the whole club is just basking in the most noxious of hubris. Kind of like a Swedish Hamburg.

Nike utilises the all-black kit to pay homage to the AIK team of 1901, a side that won the clubs second ever league title. The team of 1901 was also the one to debut the now standardized black kits for the club, in contrast to the previously sported white kits.

A mere 127 shirts were made, a homage to the 127 years of the clubs existence. The shirts were drawn to 127 lucky AIK fans in an email raffle – and it seems that they’ll never reach general sale. The club even told their players to hold tight to their jerseys and not give them to fans or family but keep your chin up! AIK will release a similar away jersey on Saturday7:45 GMT. Just check their Instagram for more info.


Back in the day, footballers loved a cigarette or 10 and they were some bloody good footballers at that. Socrates, Johan Cruyff, Diego Maradona, Gianluca Vialli and David Ginola all loved a bit of it, some more than others.

TensClub has released this reworked Marlboro vintage gear, combining various campaigns made up of footballers and smoking. The gear features a cigarette endorsement from Alfredo Di Stefano, an anti-smoking advert by Johan Cruyff that ran in Spain and some old anti-smoking kits from West Brom.

Each piece is 1 of 1, so you’ll have to act quickly to make sure you get a bit of this release. The capsule features windbreakers, windpants, hoodies, denim shirts and t-shirts.

Our friends over at LBF have just released some new gear which does not fail to impress. Like always, LBF are keeping us fresh on and off the pitch.


The collection features the tagline “Relegate Winter” due to the release of four new beanie hats, long sleeve t-shirts, a crewneck jumper and a fantastic hooded sweatshirt.

The collection starts with these two long sleeve pocketed t-shirts with one being a beautiful crunchberry colour and the other in union blue.



Then came the crewneck jumper which has the excellent logo design on the front and comes in a lovely blue colour. An tribute to the companies roots as “PHILA” (as in Philadelphia) is printed below the main design.


The brand have released four beautiful hats, two being bobble hats and the other two simple beanies. Two simplistic colour ways on the simple beanies, one maroon and one black where the other two see a more wild approach. The two wilder ones being striped red, black and white and the other green, dark green and white.

Our favourite piece from the collection is the hooded sweatshirt. The brands name, ‘Live Breathe Futbol’, printed down each arm with the logo on the front creates a sublime piece, one definitely worth copping.

[ Fashion x Football ] The Reggae Shirt by NIVELCRACK x CityBoysFC

When football meets fashion, two incredibly interesting worlds collide . South Korean brand NIVELCRACK (in collaboration with Japanese brand CityBoys FC) have got the combination locked down – especially with this Reggae shirt in a striking pink and a rich purple colourway.

The shirt is inspired by Bob Marley. “Football is freedom” is the motto and it is exactly what the shirt has been designed to portray. The shirt features Marley himself, the words ‘FOOTBALL IS FREEDOM’, guitars and palm trees across the whole garment, expressing a paradise created by the beautiful game. The ‘Hawaiian-esque’ nature of the shirt conveys the free spirit of football. We especially love the clash of hues – breaking the rules, another depiction of freedom.




The shirt is available to buy here. It’s worth it. #FOOTBALLISPERMANENT
