Mexico 86 Vintage T-Shirt // Black 100% cotton
The Mexico '86 World Cup T-Shirt is part of Copa's stunning new line of Vintage T-Shirts. Tipping their hat to football's glorious history, the Vintage line of T-Shirts is the perfect compliment to Copa's contemporary line of fashionable football clothing. The 1986 World Cup in Mexico was the 13th time the tournament was contested, and ultimately saw Argentina, led by Diego Maradona, win their second World Cup title. While the most famous game of the Mexico 86 World Cup was undoubtedly England v Argentina, which saw 2 of Maradona's defining moments, the 'Hand of God' and the outrageous run through the entire England team, the 1986 World Cup was host to some of the finest talent the game has ever seen. Besides Maradona Mexico 86 featured top-scorer Gary Lineker, Brazilian legends Careca and Socrates, Spanish striker Emilio Butragueno, France pairing Michel Platini and Jean Pierre Papin, German icon Lothar Matthaus, a young Michael Laudrup and the host nation's own legendary Hugo Sanchez.
Copa's Mexico '86 Vintage T-Shirt depicts the tournament mascot, Pique, utilising a combination of cracked print and flock detailing for a worn in, retro look that fits the subject matter perfectly.
Consisting of T-shirts with unique aging effects and a lot of details, the inspiration was taken from a combination of retro football and vintage style T-shirts, making the COPA Vintage line a great addition to the collection. They reflect football styles with careful consideration of the garments worn at the time, the colours, the fabrics and our love for football.
