Trawler memorial shirts to be auctioned from Sunday.

Hull City Kits are delighted and privileged to have been asked by local Trawler memorial groups to help them auction some matchworn shirts. A first batch will go on auction website Ebay this Sunday evening from 8pm. You may recall that when City faced Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in February, the Tigers wore shirts that […]

Kit Tracking: The season so far…

If you’ve been scratching your head, trying to remember what kit City wore at Cardiff or Bolton, then scratch no more. Here’s a breakdown of what the Tigers have worn in 2017/18 to date.

2017/18 third kit by Umbro – First impressions

The 2017/18 third kit has been unveiled and is now on sale. The HCK kitgeeks have been stroking their chins in contemplation, and are now joined by City matchworn collector Mike Carter in weighing in with their views… *Obligatory disclaimer 1/2*: Our view on the current club crest is well established, so we won’t retread old […]

A brief history of City in amber shorts

Recently we cheekily asked Denis to ‘WhatIf’ for us once more, selecting an earlier timeframe, and like an Emerald […]

2017/18 away kit by Umbro – First impressions

We now know what City will look like when a change of kit is necessary on their travels in 2017/18. So what do the HCK kitgeeks make of the new Umbro garb?  *Obligatory disclaimer*: We don’t like what the current crest stands for, it is a reminder of the petty and vindictive attempt to change […]

Shirt Swapping: Aston Villa

It’s been a while since we’ve done any ‘shirt swapping’, in the sense of taking a look at the current and historical kits of another club in addition to Hull City. With the 2017/18 season upon us, we thought we’d cast a critical eye over the garb of our opening day opponents, Aston Villa, selecting […]
