Juventus was founded in 1897, and the club's first ever shirt was pink with a black tie. However, continual washing faded the colour so much that in 1903 the club wanted to replace the jerseys. One of... the club's players, an Englishman, contacted a friend in Nottingham, who was a Notts County fan. The club received black and white striped shirts, and wears them ever since. The Juventus away kit already had many different colours such as blue, yellow, white, black or pink.
