These mysterious garments are essentially two half-kits, from two different teams, stitched together. They don't seem to be mass manufactured, but rather sewn together at home. Pictures of these one-off half-and-half kits keep emerging on Twitter and Facebook. Sometimes they commemorate both sides in a particular match, but often they simply show two different sides a fan supports. And some writers have argued that they represent a turn against tribal loyalty in football.
