Serie A giants Lazio have unveiled a classic throwback kit to commemorate their 115th anniversary, with a backstory that matches the most stylish football shirt GiveMeSport has seen in some time.

Le Aquile rarely do things by half measures and decided to work with Macron to put a giant Eagle in the middle of their new strip, for the first time since 1987.

This weekend's clash with AC Milan will see Stefano Pioli's side wear the white and blue number for the first time, a trend that will continue for the rest of a campaign which promises much for a side surpassing expectations in Serie A this season.

The history

Lazio clearly want fans to take on board a little history lesson when they see the retro effort this weekend, harking back to a very difficult time in the club's past.

The 1986/87 season was the last time Lazio had a central Eagle separating blocks of white and blue, a campaign which saw the Biancocelesti docked 10 points after being convicted of match fixing.

Lazio were in Serie B at the time and came within moments of falling into Italy's third tier, before a last-gasp goal from Eugenio Fascetti against saw them survive by the skin of their teeth.

Macron have finally get it right

Italian sportwear Macron have brought to life the design of a former club-president for the mid-season change, which goes on sale in Lazio's own club stores in Rome tomorrow morning.

Collectors of hipster apparel from across the continent will have to wait until Monday to place their order online, but something tells me this will sell in spades.

Italian football has a chequered recent past when it comes to producing classic kits, we are looking at you Napoli and horrendous recent camouflage and double-denim designs, but Lazio's latest foray into the market is an absolute triumph.

Macron produced both of those awful kits, but all is now forgiven.
