ABOUT US

 

Since 1990, TOFFS has been creating old-fashioned football and rugby shirts for fans looking for a nostalgic way of celebrating the sporting glory days of yesteryear.

 

Handcrafted at our factory in Gateshead using all-British materials, our high-quality replica retro kits recreate iconic jersey designs worn by some of the greatest teams in history, down to the finest detail.

 

With a selection of more than 1,000 products and minimum production runs of 20 per garment, we are extremely proud to be able to offer a clothing range covering over 240 football teams from all over the world, in addition to t-shirts, track tops, polos, sweatshirts, hoodies and a wide range of sporting memorabilia.

 

The TOFFS brand has three decades of history behind it, and we remain a family-run business committed to crafting premium vintage sportswear - made by the fans, and for the fans.

 

OUR HISTORY

 

Founded in 1990 by husband-and-wife team Alan and Michele Finch, The Old Fashioned Football Shirt Company was established with one key goal - to produce luxury retro football and rugby shirts using traditional methods of cutting and sewing, to the very highest standards.

 

Ever since securing an initial deal with Arsenal FC to create 150 replicas of the West London club’s iconic 1950 FA Cup Final kit back in 1991, TOFFS has gone from strength to strength, securing deals with teams from around the world and producing luxury kits for an international fanbase.

 

The company has gone on to work with brands such as Budweiser, Nintendo, Granada, Carlsberg and McDonalds, and TOFFS shirts have appeared widely on TV, including on EastEnders, Coronation Street and Hollyoaks. What's more, a whole host of football clubs and their museums now stock TOFFS kits, including the National Football Museum in Preston.

PRIDE IN WORKMANSHIP

 

Pride In Workmanship

Every one of our TOFFS retro kits is handcrafted at our factory in Gateshead in the North East of England. Here, our highly skilled machinists and embroiderers lovingly machine-stitch each and every bespoke garment, using flat, overlocker, hemmer, button hole and embroidery techniques to ensure that every shirt is as authentic as possible.

 

All of our fabric and components are sourced in Britain, and every element of each different shirt is rigorously scrutinised and researched - from shade of colour to the weight of the cloth used - to create products that are indistinguishable from the real thing.

 

Our production team of Abbey, Anne, Alan, Doreen, Karl, Lorraine, Ann, Michelle, Sandra, Sue & Sue take great pride in their work, and pay great attention to making sure that every garment leaving the building is fit for celebrating that last-minute winner.

BY THE FANS, FOR THE FANS

 

Our sports-mad design team are constantly creating new clothing ranges for TOFFS. We already offer shirts for fans of hundreds of teams, including practically every English professional football club, as well as countless dozens of club and national sides from across the world of football and rugby.

 

However, we’re always looking to take inspiration from the true fans out there as we look to expand our range further. If you have an idea of your own and would like to see the TOFFS team turn it into reality, email us at enquiries@toffs.com.
