Hubbick Allround

With trefoils the size of tea trays, this is George Warr (left) and Harry Hubbick, kit manager and trainer respectively at Preston North End, scanned from the 2nd May 1981 issue of Shoot!. In relation to Beckham and the football world of 2010, this is indeed from a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, and despite the lack of Stan Smith or Beckenbauer-style endorsements for these fellas (not to mention their conspicuous absence from the promo displays at the flagship Berlin store), adidas Originals they most certainly are.

"iconic Star Wars themed apparel? I've shit 'em".
