John Devlin/True Colours

John Devlin, author of True Colours: Football Kits from 1980 to the Present Day, Volumes 1 and 2, came on the SoccerNomad podcast to talk kit history and design. His wealth of knowledge is remarkable and I learned a lot. After a great conversation, we finished with some listener questions.

Learn more about kits and get in touch with John.
