Manchester City and St Marks Gorton

There is some debate between Manchester City historians to the teams which preceded Manchester City football club.

For a long time, it was (and still is by many) accepted that Anna Connell (the rector of St Marks Gorton’s daughter) believed that a football team would be a good way to keep the working men of East Manchester out of the pubs on a Saturday afternoon (little did she know for the next 100+ years City would be driving 1000’s to drink). This team was St Marks (West Gorton) which was formed in 1880.

This photo from 1894 shows St Marks (West Gorton) in the kit which inspired Campo Retro’s range.

Here’s what Campo Retro have to say about the shirt

Modelled on the very earliest football shirts, Centenario is a fusion of modern attention to detail and classic tailored style seen in the early 50’s. It features a smart covered button placket with a contrast mini stripe under its tailored collar, together with smart flush finish cuffs.

We’ve taken our design and styling influence for this uniquely styled Centenario Jersey from the many sides who’ve adopted black as their away jersey.

Crafted from 100% soft handle luxury 200grm Cotton.

We’ve designed the Campo range to be customised to your favourite team with a neat little Campo branded pin badge housing on the hem. You can now proudly show off any pin badge you like, safe in the knowledge that you won’t damage your shirt.

This shirt is suitable for our Authentic Retro Hand Stitched number to be applied to the back of the shirt if required.

Revisiting iconic shirts and refining the style. We are Campo. We are Retro.Reinvented.

A warning from Campo Retro on the sizes of their t-shirts

“Our T-Shirt is made from 100% soft handle luxury 180grm Cotton.

Tailored Style: At Campo, we love RETRO and we love style!

When looking good is the name of the game, getting the right size is crucial! With this in mind it’s only fair that we remind you that Campo T-shirts are designed to provide that modern fashion fit. Some may say designed for the slim Jim, so if you are partial to the odd half time pie then you may want to consider sizing up to provide a little more breathing space. Before you get kitted out make sure you check our sizing guide above!”
