  In a season 1919-20 the design away shirt has changed. Liverpool used away shirt eight-? seasons, 1912-13 to 1919-20 (time of use away shirt is probably inexact).

  A 1.0 - Away shirt with home shorts & home socks.

  A 1- * - Unknown me now which kits used in this matches, but I assume used away shirt.

  May be socks which used Liverpool was black color, I as assume. in 20s years have some color cards when on Liverpool players socks was are painted in black color, course in life all can was different.

  Used Liverpool with 1911-12 to 1919-20, white shirts, I not know. On this moment I not have not one photos, if you have information, write to me.

  Black color of strips on Liverpool shirts on a black-white photo was defined by David Moor from site, big to it has defined thanks for the help in it, and on other question on history of the football kits in the Great Britain. Kjell Henssen (football historian, has also confirmed that Liverpool's change shirts from 1911 until 1921 were black and white stripes (not red/white).

  These are three away shirts of a season 1919-20, is evident, that shirts Tommy Lucas (in the center) and Albert Pearson (on the right) are carelessly sewed, a white vertical strip not on the center of a shirt. At the left a standard away shirt, Donald MacKinlay.


  1st image, away shirt (white-black stripes or white-red stripes) season 1911-12. 2nd image, away shirt (white-red stripes) seasons 1913-20. Last image, away shirt (white-red stripes) with white lace collar used in season 1921-22.

  Players, and later clubs, generally bought their playing kit from local sports outfitters. The kits were often locally made by the outfitters or small garment manufacturers. Bukta, founded in 1879, were the first mass manufacturer of football kits, and remained so until Humphrey Brothers Clothing were formed in 1920 in Wilmslow, Cheshire. In 1924 they became Umbro. Although these two Companies came to dominate the market they relied upon distributors and the local sports outfitters rather than supplying clubs direct.

  I to find in Everton and Liverpool union programme for season 1919-20, with advertisement "Jack Sharp" sport shop (38 Whitechapel). Clubs Everton and Liverpool, could buy equipment in "Jack Sharp" sport shop. Jack Sharp former Everton.

  I else in this programmes, can to find else some advertisement other sport shops in Liverpool. "Frank Sugg" sport shop (12 Lord Street). "Hibbard's aieral football" sport shop (21 Richmond Street).

  Lace collar used in seasons 1919-31, of white lining inside the laced collar.

  I think for all 12nd seasons when Liverpool used this design home shirt, this home shirt made with some echanges (on a collar and thickness of a fabric).
