Review: FC Barcelona women’s away jersey 11-12
By MM Sports women’s apparel ambassador Katie Scharra
This season’s Barcelona away jersey is my first women’s apparel jersey, as I usually either wear a youth size or men’s. I was very impressed with the fit of this jersey, and it has many features that makes it fit with a stylish and comfortable look. The darts that run up the sides make it flattering to the female figure, and it looks incredibly fashionable. Sizing does run a bit small since it is a Nike jersey, and I found that it was a bit too snug around my shoulders making it not very useful to work out in. I would, however, defiantly wear it to my weekly kick-about as the Nike Dri- Fit technology is very impressive and keeps me cool while wearing it. The style of the jersey is an all black style, which at first I thought I would find to be a bit boring, but with the personalization added to the back the jersey became a whole new look.
As well as added extra value, the personalization was very well applied and withstood the washing machine. I can very easily wear it any day of the week with a pair of jeans or shorts, but as for the lazy weekend at home I would stick to the comfort of a men’s jersey. The only negative feedback I got from other fans on the new club look was that the design of the sponsor, the Qartar Foundation, on the front seems less exciting than the old Unicef front. This could be because it is a bit smaller on the front for the women’s style to make it more flattering. All in the detail I suppose. As for my opinion on the new look and my newly found love for women’s jerseys? I am completely sold on the female jersey as the fit is excellent and it is stylish enough to wear everyday while the Dri-Fit makes it great to play in, and although it is a simple black a personalization on the back makes it as exciting as it is sleek.
