Euro 2016: Chris Oakley’s Alternakits: Group E

It’s time then, for another round of Euro 2016 alternative kits, designed for us by Chris Oakley because the kits that have been designed by the manufacturers for the teams taking part in this summer’s European Championships have been a pretty dreadful bunch. This evening we’re up to Group E, which features FIFA’s number two team in the world, Belgium, and the occasional under-achievers and occasional over-achievers, Italy. You can find more of Chris’s designs over at his home for such matters, Kitbliss, and you can follow him on Twitter by clicking here. Belgium: Red and black should both...

Dotmund’s Bayeux Odyssey: Day One

Long time readers of this site will already be plenty aware of the fact that we love a bit of art here on 200%. From that picture of dogs playing poker to the poster of a woman scratching her backside whilst playing tennis, there isn’t any art that we don’t like. In 2010, Edward Carter took the story of France’s brief involvement in the competition and told it through the means of a Bayeux Tapestry, and this summer, as it’s being held in France, he’s telling the story of the entire tournament. He’s already indicated the extent of the...

Euro 2016: Chris Oakley’s Alternakits – Group B

As we mentioned on here last night – and will no doubt will do again repeatedly over the course of the next few weeks – the kits being used by the vast majority of teams taking part in Euro 2016 are a disgrace. With this in mind, we asked friend of the site Chris Oakley to come up with replacements for every nation taking part, and last night we put up those that he had designed for the teams in Group A. Today we move onto Group B, which – in the real world, at least – features England...
