The Lightweight (1980-2002)

References 601 - 700.

This page includes kits produced between 1985 and 1990. I am grateful to Stefano Montecchiesi and Uli Kretz for their team name charts. Any kits that survived until 1994 before being redesigned, saw these new colours reuse the old numbers. This mostly occurs in the 700+ range, but there are a few examples here.

Watford and Holland with reduced trim - from 1994 There seem to be two versions of 685 - with trim differences and the spots on the shorts reversed.
Know your Arsenal figures! It can be difficult to correctly identify these two kits - and this is not helped by the catalogue illustration showing white socks on 683 (although never rule out alternate kits!). If in doubt, 642 has trim on the shirt cuffs, (and blue trim only on the back of the shorts).
