From the publisher:
An extraordinary illustrated book that, through an amazing series of unpublished photographs from collectors and public and private archives, traces the history of the most important, striking and significant jerseys of Argentine soccer: their origins, their evolution and their most memorable scenes.
The definitive visual anthology of the historical jerseys of our clubs and our selection. A hypnotic journey through the colors and drawings that dressed the most popular sport in the country for more than a hundred years, through an amazing series of unpublished photographs of pieces tracked down among collectors and museums. A real goal: all this is Legendary Argentine football shirts.
The origins of each team; its evolution, its most memorable scenes and its forgotten pearls. The development of sports clothing in Argentina and global trends. The brands that sponsored companies and players. The explosive deployment of a market that today is stronger and larger than ever.
25 of the most popular clubs - including the so-called "big five": Boca, River, Independiente, Racing and San Lorenzo; but also several of the most traditional in the metropolitan area of Buenos Aires and the most important in the interior- are measured in these pages with their emblematic garments, portrayed in images that highlight reds and whites, blues and yellows, canes and fringes; the designs, the textures, the discreet and the most radical changes. Their respective stories, displayed in innumerable anecdotes that tell how, when, where the clubs and their symbols were born; how they perspired and muddied them.
A book to see and to read with the shirt on and the emotion and memories on the surface.
