Luton Town is a professional football club from the Luton town of Bedfordshire, England. The club previously wore white home kits, but switched to consistently wearing orange ones beginning the 2009/10 season. They play their home games in the Kenilworth Road that has an all-seater capacity of more than 10,000.

With Luton Town back in top-flight action, the town went back to season 1974/75 and used that classic kit as inspiration for their 2023/24 Umbro home shirt. As such, the modern outfit was predominantly orange with a vertical band running down the left side of the body. Viewing the shirt from an audience perspective, the said band had a faded transition on the left side but had a solid navy border on the other. Speaking of navy, the accent colour also involved the prominent sleeve cuffs and the angled flat collar.

Luton Town’s 2022/23 Umbro home featured an orange base, misting around white to loosely recreate the regular, repeating rhombus pattern seen on the 1989/90 home kit. Navy accents from the broad sleeve cuffs and the raised sides of the collar gave the kit a unique look.

The Hatters wore an Umbro home shirt for their 2021/22 Championship campaign. It was orange with a tonal horizontal graphic that symbolised the different weave patterns produced by straw milers prevalent in the area. The collar and the triangle panels on the backside of the solid-filled sleeves provided the shirt with its white accents.

Luton Town’s 2022/23 Umbro away was predominantly white, limiting the visual designs to the sleeves. Geometric shapes in blue and orange joined the random pinstripes to form the whole picture of the graphics, inspired by the 1991/92 home shirt that featured such aesthetics on the sides of the body. Navy sleeve cuffs and round collar completed the look.

The collar and the cuffs blended in well by sharing the same black base colour. A v-neckline collar completed the look.
There were many prominent football clubs back then in the town, of which Luton Wanderers and Luton Excelsior were considered to be the prominent ones. George Deacon of the Wanderers was the first to think of having a ‘town’ club. On April 11, 1885, in a town hall meeting he arranged with fellow Wanderer player John Charles Lomax, the motion to form a ‘Luton Town Football Club’ was adopted. It was also resolved that the team colours were to be pink and dark blue.
Luton Town players are nicknamed the ‘Hatters.’ The term is an embrace of the town’s historical connection to hat making, a trade that is prominent in the area since the 17th century.
The club share a heated rivalry with Watford, who generally have played in higher divisions but has an inferior record against Luton. The 2003 Football Fans Census showed that supporters also have animosity towards the fans of Queen’s Park Rangers and vice-versa.
