We all have fond memories of old Huddersfield Town kits, but which retro one is your favourite?

We’ve selected some of our favourite home and away Town shirts from the past and now it’s over to you to tell us which holds the best memories for you!

What are the nominees? Well, here’s the home ones…

The 1985/86 home shirt sponsored by Daihatsu

Now that was your traditional Huddersfield Town shirt! This was worn by Mick Buxton’s side and it was in this shirt that a little bit of Club history was made! Dale Tempest became the first and only player to score a hat trick on the opening day of a season for the Club against Millwall. Did you know it was actually only the third ever Town shirt to have a sponsor on the front!

The 1987/89 home shirt sponsored by Greenalls Beers ‘Bib’

Who doesn’t remember the ‘bib’ shirt? This kit will always be associated with Craig Maskell, who scored 33 goals in this shirt in the 1988/89 season, beating then post-war goalscoring record of 32 goals set by Jimmy Glazzard.

The 1989/91 sponsored by Greenalls

Now this shirt is one of our favourites for a number of reasons. It saw the return of the traditional striped Huddersfield Town shirts and was the one that started our final decade at Leeds Road. It was worn by the likes of Craig Maskell, Iwan Roberts and Kieran O’Regan and, of course, the man himself Peter Jackson made his Town debut wearing it.

Now on to the away ones… we will warn you, some of these are slightly garish!

The 1987/88 Greenalls Beers yellow and black shirt

Now we know this shirt is intrinsically linked with the 10-1 defeat at Manchester City, but with the gallows humour of Huddersfield Town fans, this has proved a rather iconic shirt! It’s bold, eye-catching and certainly stands out from the crowd.

The 1993/94 Vileda pink shirt

Wow, who remembers this beauty? It was certainly a 90’s inspired shirt! With a nod back to the salmon pink of the first ever HTAFC shirts, this was certainly a bold statement, at the time, both for the players and the Town faithful.

The 1997/98 Panasonic away shirt

Not as loud as the other two, but memorable for an iconic season… that is, of course, our ‘Great Escape’. Conjuring images of Wayne Allison, Marcus Stewart and Paul Dalton this shirt was worn during that unforgettable season when Peter Jackson guided the team to safety in Division One (now Championship). Wins at Stoke City, West Brom and Crewe stick out in the mind when thinking about this kit.

Well there you have it! We hope you like our choices and as alluded to, it’s now over to you to vote!
