We're taking a break from Gloves I've Loved. We will be revisiting it in a few weeks, because there's a chance I could be reunited with an actual, real-life pair of my second-favorite glove ever, the Uhlsport 023. For now, though, let's enjoy some chromatic catastrophies from the 1990s, the decade where, regarding goalkeeper jerseys, taste went to die. These are in no particular order, and I'm only including mass-produced jerseys, so don't expect to see Jorge Campos's handmade neon nightmares.
Hi, I'm Edwin Van der Sar, two-time winner of the Champions League. Do you like my jersey? No? Well, what about my haircut?
If Flock of Seagulls had a goalkeeper, this is what he would look like.
What. The. Hell.
David Seaman exults. "We've won! I can take this off now!"
Tim Flowers, you've reached the pinnacle of your profession. Congratulations, now go put this on.
