Review: Tottenham Hotspur away jersey 10-11 from Puma
By MM Sports Joker Ambassador Aaron Holtsclaw
I am reviewing the 10/11 season Tottenham Hotspur jersey which is a light blue. The one I received was personalized with the number 11 and Van Der Vaart on the back which is good because he should play for Spurs for some time as opposed to Modric who will probably be leaving soon. Being a large man in the Los Angeles area who follows English Football, you get odd looks when you wear a jersey like that out in public. People around here recognize some of the more famous clubs like Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea, or Spanish sides Real Madrid and Barcelona. So a Spurs jersey in LA is definitely a conversation starter.
The jersey is manufactured by Puma and is put together well. I am a large man. My shirt size is 3XL. Most manufacturers don’t realize that there is a market for large jerseys. Everytime I watch a game from England, the camera will zoom into the crowd and it appears the crossection of fans features a few large dudes who in my eyes, would probably like to buy their teams kit but often cannot find it in their size. Modern jersey s have been trending towards a tight fitting jersey which is not good for large men. In America, the NFL has realized this and rakes in the money off of jersey sales with a large portion of them being in the large end of the size spectrum. But back to the jersey, I have seen plenty of bootleg jerseys in my day that are made from the weekest materials and it is obvious from the first look at this kit that it is genuine. The material feels nice and the lines are sewn without flaws. The bird on the Spurs crest sits proud on the ball and all 3 pumas are nice and clean as they jump across the chest and each arm. The personalization on the back of the shirt is applied nice with proper spacing. You would assume that I could hand this to a Spurs player who got blood on his shirt and he could rotate right back into the game wearing this.
The shirt sponsor logo is unobtrusive to the overall look of the kit and rounds out a very well put together attractive jersey. With the light blue, you don’t have to worry about where you wear it in the Orange County/Los Angeles area because it doesn’t represent any gang colors. Overall this is an attractive jersey that I am happy to wear.
