Bukta's red change shirt was not unlike the previous Umbro version, last worn in 1961. It was the same v-neck, but the white numbers on the back were now in the Bukta style. The emblem on the left breast had a white border around it, but the accompanying shorts and socks were also red, more aesthetically pleasing than a combination of navy and red, when up against a team in all white.

Although the white shirt acquired a round-neck version in 1963, the red had to stick with the less fashionable v-neck for the extensive tour of 1964, where it was twice worn against Portugal (then favouring white shirts), paired with white shorts and socks. Then, against Argentina (team group pictured left), the socks were all red, without the calf band. It made a final bow, against West Germany, a year later, though strangely, the numbers were in the Umbro style.

The examples pictured above are the shirts worn by Maurice Norman against Peru (left) and Czechoslovakia (right), which included the F.A.'s Centenary emblem, with the words, CENTENARY YEAR above the crest and 1863-1963 below it. Simon Shakeshaft, curator of the National Football Shirt Collection at the England Match Shirts website kindly supplied the image of the Czech game shirt, which is part of the Neville Evans Collection.
