New Season Terrace Clothing Trends

With the new season just around the corner, now is the ideal time to get ready for the terraces. To help you with this, we have put together a quick roundup of the best football fan clothing for the 2017/18 season.

Polo shirts

As you can see here polo shirts are all the rage at the moment. For the start of the season, they are a great option, especially on warmer afternoons and evenings.

In the colder months, when you need to wear several layers, they can still be worn. This year, quite a few retailers are offering long sleeve version, and the longer cuts are great at stopping drafts.

They are available in a range of football colours, so they are not a bad alternative to a traditional football shirt. Polo shirts are ideal if you want to enjoy a night out after the match without running the risk of getting turned away from places.


Hoodies look great, as well as being really practical. They never really go out fashion, so it is well worth splashing the cash and buying one you really like. If you can, go for a zip up version. When you are packed in tight they are far easier to get on and off.

Puffers Parkas and Barbours

Puffer jackets and parkas should continue to be widely available. The fact they provide a good level of protection means they are likely to continue to be popular with football fans. However, this year, there is a third contender – the Barbour jacket.

For decades, these wax jackets were mainly worn by the hunting, shooting fraternity. In the 30s, motorcyclists started to wear them, but they were still very much a niche item of clothing. However, that in the 80s they did become more widely worn. This year, they are back in style again. In the 80s, they never really made it to the terraces, but it is looking likely that they will this time around.

Retro style jeans

Jeans look set to continue to be the trousers of choice. Right now, it is the retro styles of the 80s and 90s that are selling fastest. Old-school Armani, Lee and Levi jeans are all making a comeback, but newer brands like Nudie are also making inroads into the terracewear sector.

This year, slim cut jeans are the cut of choice. The rip repair look is set to be big. If you own vintage jeans, now is a good time to dig them out of your wardrobe. Right now, there is strong demand for vintage jeans. This article will help you work out if it is worth trying to sell your old Levis or start wearing them again.

Since the 1970s, designer labels have been the cornerstone of many football fans wardrobes. The iconic Stone-Island label is still going to be popular. But their clothes have become so widely worn that a lot of fans are looking for something a bit different. This year, you can expect to see more Lacoste and Umbro clothing being worn on the terraces.

Smart casual items from the Paul Smith and C.P. Company collections also seem to be selling well. As a result, you can expect to see more of their clothes appearing on the terraces, this year.
