In 1878, Manchester was at the heart of the industrial revolution. Steel factories and cotton mills dominated the skyline. This was the year England’s most successful team was born. 134 years on, Manchester United celebrates its proud heritage by launching the Gingham Collection.

Cotton mills packed the skyline back in Manchester’s industrial heyday. Life was defined by hard graft and long days at work.

The world’s biggest club was created by men of the city, railway workers of Newton Heath.

Hard work and determination epitomised the working masses in the cotton trade – characteristics that continue to define Manchester United and drive them to success.

Workers demonstrated great skill and meticulous attention to detail. Discipline and organisation were the foundations on which every factory was built.

The Gingham collection is born from Manchester’s rich heritage of design and manufacturing.

Manchester United’s Theatre of Dreams stands triumphantly back in the early 1900s. Football galvanised the community and provided a release for many.

Two icons side by side. Manchester United legend Ronnie Cope strikes, as bellowing towers stand imposingly in the backdrop.
