The Story

The Third Kit started in back in 2018 selling vintage football shirts on online shopping platforms. This grew over time to feature regular London-based popups, selling the more unusual and rarer shirts, from a range of teams around the globe.

The growing demand for pop-ups lead to a permanent retail space (situated very close to London Bridge); providing a beacon for collectors, the football fan community, and vintage clothing enthusiasts in general.

Open every weekend and by appointment during the week, The Third Kit still strives to provide the same high level of vintage football shirts and clothing – a wide range of the rare, and the unusual, as well as showcase interesting memorbilia dating back to the 60’s and 70s.

More importantly, the shop is a hub for the football community – a welcoming and inclusive space; one where people of all backgrounds, identites and teams can come together to share an appreciation of garish polyester…

For appointments during the week, or to sell your football shirts to us direct please head to the Visit The Shop page and use the contact form, or email
