A couple of points. Up until the 1930’s many clubs wore woven woollen jerseys - which is often still used as a term today - even though the shirts are obviously no longer made of wool!

The earliest date for Palace changing from wool to cotton shirts is 1935 - which was actually a momentous year in Palace history - briefly, we had three Chairmen in very swift succession with Mr Bellatti and Mr Flew both passing away within a matter of two months of each other - Palace also had to change manager at the start of the 35/36 season when Jack Tresarden resigned to take over at Spurs and Tom Bromilow took over.

1935/36 and 1936/37 were the last seasons Palace wore the ‘Cardinal’ and Blue colours, at least as a shirt design - 12 years later, for a period of 5 seasons, Claret & Light Blue was worn (49/54) - but in all the intervening years Palace wore white shirts and black shorts - apart from 1937/38, when we mysteriously changed to Red & Blue stripes, white shorts!

Here is an example of the 1935/36 kit - apologies to Ockleywood as I lifted this picture from a thread he started on Palace Supporters Club picture cards



Another point to bear in mind - most clubs only started wearing numbered shirts from 1939.


.. we should campaign for, or set a new trend for such high waisted shorts! )))
