Style of the Port Vale Football Shirts
The famous monochrome striped appearance of the Port Vale home shirt came about in 1921 as a result of the club experimenting with the appearance of their kit. They chopped and changed the look of their home jersey by trialling a plain red base, gold and black striped pattern, claret and blue colour way and even red and white stripes too before deciding on their classic black and white appearance. Since then they have still experimented with the look of the home shirt before making a solid decision to keep the monochrome stripes in 1963.
Although the team started playing soccer professionally in the 1920s, they did not have a crest on their jerseys up until the 1950s. The first ever crest for Port Vale was modelled on the Burslem Borough coat of arms by incorporating the scythe of the Tunstall arms, the fretted cross of Audley and the two Josiah Wedgwood pots. However, this emblem was changed to a monogram of the club’s name in 1964 which was then changed in 1981 but another design was not used until 1983. This new crest had a bottle oven and the Staffordshire knot to pay homage to the town’s heritage. And finally, in 2013 the Port Vale crest was adapted for the last time to include a rehash of the 1956 crest along with historical references to create the crest we know and love today.
