  In a season 1955-56 the design home shirt has changed. Liverpool used second home shirt eight seasons, 1955-56 to 1962-63 (time of use shirt is probably inexact). Liverpool used home shirt how in more home, as and in more away matches. In season 1957-58 also used second home shirt (white turn-down collar).

  H 1.0 - Home shirt with home shorts & home socks.
  H or S H - Unknown me now which design home kits used in this matches, but I assume used home shirt.
  H or S H or A - Unknown me now which design home or away kits used in this matches.

  With home shirt, Liverpool used home shorts (white color) and home socks (red-white color), but possible in one of away matches used away shorts (black color).

  Shirt this style (V-neck collar and short sleeves) else named now "Continental shirts". UMBRO factory made this style (V-neck collar and short sleeves) of different fabric, "lightweight cotton interlock fabric" and " heavyweight cotton interlock fabric".

  Author site "" Dave Moor, has assumed, that shirts with a short sleeve, were used in good weather, and with a long sleeve, in cold. The logic in it is, but may be so business in other.

  Else what you know, home shirt with turn-down collar and long sleeves also made from different fabrics on thickness.

  My pages about history of Liverpool shirts in 50s years, most likely, contain mistakes in dating use of a shirt with a while turn-down collar or with V-neck collar. Why it is difficult, not so it is a lot of photos (at me) these years and very little where there is a date when the photo is made. It concerns also a photo of a Liverpool team.

  Interesting fact. Have one paradoks, answer to which at me is not present. In one of last home match af Anfield, versus Sheffield United (12.04.1958), Liverpool played in home shirt with white turn-down collar & Liverbird and long sleeves. What 12 April was cold weather or there were other reasons (photo in left Billy Liddell).

  Home shirt with turn-down collar, which also used Liverpool F.C. in cold weather I name how "Second home shirt". Why this shirt from my site have name "Second home shirt", only for classification of the kits.

  For all eight seasons, 1955-56 to 1962-63 this shirt (V-neck collar with Liverbird) course can made of different fabrics, on thickness and color. Also can to see what with season 1960-61 (right image) oval with embroidered Liverbird & L.F.C. was it is sewn some down what on Liverpool shirt (V-neck collar with Liverbird & L.F.C.) with seasons 1955-56 to 1959-60 (left image).

  With season 1955-56, manufacturer Umbro company start made new design football shirt with V-neck collar.

In Umbro catalogue for season 1957-58, write, what colors on home shirt which used Liverpool, name "Scarlet-White".
