Great Tracksuits of Our Time: No.7

Coventry City (circa 1978):

Seen here modelled by Gerry Daly, this is a smart design in light and dark blue with quite possibly the biggest flappy collar that's ever been seen by the human eye. Forget the Great Wall of China - this collar really can be seen from outer space.

This tracksuit top would have been worn around the same time as the famous Admiral 'tramlines' kit, and as you can see, this is a modification of that same design. Replacing the stripey lines are two broad bands curving in from the shoulder flanking a central vertical band that straddles the zip. Combine it with *that* collar and you have yet another lovely bit of kit from the geniuses at Admiral.
