Often villified but constantly influential, football shirt templates have been around for decades. Now, finally, the best examples are examined and analysed in The Kitbliss 100 Greatest Football Shirt Templates.

Every month or so, Kitbliss will be celebrating template design in a series of blog posts counting down from 100 to 1. Each post will examine the important details and the many variations that contribute to their legendary status. Along the way, it's hoped that you'll discover templates you've never seen before or perhaps just change the way you think about those you already knew.

With 100 templates to examine, there's much to discover so sit back and enjoy the best of football shirt design - in template form.
