For many years Saints kits were supplied by local Sports shop, Alexanders, and there were no ‘official’ replica kits available to fans although they did supply a simple black and white striped shirt instead.

occasionally these strips were produced by multinational company UMBRO, most notably for the 1959 Scottish Cup winning top.

Following a few years of nameless kit suppliers, after promotion to the Premier Division in 1977 Saints again turned to UMBRO and they produced two versions of the stripes, each being worn for a couple of seasons.

In 1981 ADIDAS took over the strip design and also produced two variations which took Saints into 1987 and a switch to Scottish suppliers Matchwinner and probably the most unpopular strip ever, the ‘Bib’.

Uhlsport, more noted for goalkeeping equipment, produced two strips for saints in 97-98 and 98-99 and both were popular, traditional stripes. The away strips however broke with tradition, being blue (97-98) and Orange (98-99).For 1999-2000 a change was once again made, with Xara producing one of the most popular strips of all time with a simple striped version. They went on to produce the kits for 8 seasons, making them the clubs longest serving kit manufacturer.

For the start of 2007/08 the club turned to massive Danish sportswear firm Hummel to produce the strip and their debut season produced three versions which were well received by the fans.

After four seasons with Hummel, the start of 2011-12 saw another change of supplier and also a change of distributer.
After many years of local sport firm Provans being the sole supplier, Saints switched to JD sports as supplier and used JD's own brand of sportswear, Carbrini.
The benefits of this deal are much wider retail potential with JD having multiple branches throughout the area and more importantly for the fans, the return to completely striped tops, minus the black or white panels on the back, which had been missing for several seasons.

For season 2012-13 and 13/14, Saints remained associated with JD Sports and the kits were manufactured by Diadora.
For 2014/15 it was a return to Carbrini and this continued until 2016/17.
