CK: Do you have any particular memories of discovering specific bootleg items?
JS: I have lots to be honest, I'm quite a romantic about the hunting and finding of vintage items so always remember a time and place when I find something to add to my collection. A real game changer for me was finding a Daniel Fonseca shirt in a flea market in Portugal and realising how beautiful a knock off design could be. Also I recently received one of my holy grails as a gift from a contact that I had made friends with on instagram. That's just another thing I love about the growing football community on social media, you get to talk from people around the globe with similar interests.
CK: Who in your opinion has been celebrated most in the bootleg world?
JS: There are two clear winners for this - Roberto Baggio and R9 Ronaldo. Just when you think you have seen them all, another one turns up. This is another major reason behind what makes bootleg shirts great. It keeps you hunting for more.
CK: If you could work with any brand on a collection, who might it be?
JS: I'm really excited to be doing this collection with you guys to be honest, it's great to see your passion for the bootleg and football creative scene and I can't wait to see where this idea takes us. Apart from yourselves it's been brilliant to see Patta's take on some Ajax classics so they would be up there and also maybe working with a legendary player directly would be a dream.
