Product Review: 2009/10 England Jersey
We all know that English national team is always at the center of a media blitz regardless of where they go. Its fans, their passion, and the contributions to the game are invaluable (hey, inventing the game means something). The making of Umbro's newest sensation brings together different aspects of men's wear. The 2009/10 England Jersey is part of Umbro's success for close to five generations as England's only football specific sportswear company has been their ability to have concepts from both past and present and still be able to look chic going to the football pitch or anywhere else. Umbro has been responsible for making jerseys that have been worn by Sir Bobby Charlton, Jack Charlton, Gordon Banks, Geoff Hurst, Gary Lineker, John Barnes as well as present stars like Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard, and David Beckham. This jersey encompasses the spirit, the passion, and the legacy and fashion that encompass the English national team.
What Makes It Unique
The 100% polyester material is ultra-soft and wicks away moisture from your skin making this version of the England national team jersey the the highest performing ever. If you are a fan of intricate patterns and lots of "things going on" from an artistic sense, this is not what the jersey is about. This is why many people in the football jersey design world are split. Once again, this depends what school of though you come from. The jersey shines in its simplicity yet once you wear it you will understand what the hype is all about.
Jersey vs. Polo
What the jersey lacks in "being a jersey" it makes up in its comfort and intricate emphasis on detail. The luxurious feel of this material makes it perfect for evenings out also. The KISS theory is what is most impressive as well as what gives this jersey a retro "softness" along with modern comfort. The makes it look like a polo yet is great to wear while hanging out with your friends at the pub or (why not?) business casual days at work. The national team jersey comes in the short sleeve as well as the long sleeve variety. Wear that jersey and it is light as light gets. Like many footballers out there, they like to have their jerseys fit them well. The average Joe likes that as well and this jersey offers it. No wonder it is one of the hottest selling jerseys in the world.
So whether you are a supporter of the Three Lions or not, this jersey is a great addition to any jersey collection. It is also a testament to the history of the game courtesy of the nation that brought to us all.
