Colourful Casuals: It’s All About The Colours
Ever since the original Casuals stepped off their ferries from foreign lands back in the late 70s it’s always been about the colours.
In the late 1970s & early 1980s Casual culture swept the nation as young football fans from teams like Liverpool & Man Utd stampeded their way across the continent in search of European glory. They would bring back new and colourful styles from a range of Continental sportswear brands such as Lacoste, Sergio Tacchini, Fila & Ellesse. Whether it was a bright yellow Pringle knit or a bright green Fila Settanta there is no denying the importance of colour to the Casuals. With peacocking & one-upmanship in full swing it was all about getting a rep for the best dressed firm. One thing is for sure, the Casuals didn’t mess about when it came to colour.
