Arsenal Training Shirt Review
Robert Glavind, CANADA
If you caught any of the Gunner’s early season games this year in the Premier League, you may have noticed the substitutes and team members on the bench seated behind Arsene Wenger and the coaching staff wearing some very cool looking t-shirts. The shirts are red and carry the standard brand and sponsor logos of the regular jerseys.
I was excited to receive this shirt to review as it has a very clean modern look.
This training shirt follows the colours of the home and away kit. The one I received is the home kit version in red with white and black trim. The red body, with elasticized white cuffs and collar includes a thin black line which matches to the black and white stripe across the front top of the chest. Directly below the stripe is the standard ‘Fly Emirates’ logo in white screened script. This kind of gives it a semi-jersey look.
Although the logos and design are all screened, Nike as the manufacturer of this shirt has done a fantastic job in adding a little style element to the traditional Arsenal colors. I think these shirts are really sharp looking and have already received numerous complements and inquiries.
The material is Nike’s tech performance, Dri-Fit line of cloth which is exceptionally light and provides excellent wicking plus breathability for running and working out in.
Different from the 2011 / 2012 jersey, this shirt carries the actual official Arsenal logo crest, which works very well with the overall modern design behind the shirt.
On the back of the shirt, screened in white below the collar is a 3d block icon form and across the shoulder blades in large block letters is the club name: ARSENAL
This shirt will make a great option for the fan who may be looking for a less expensive alternative to the official team jersey, as well as provide an uber kool style shirt for the fan looking for everyday performance casual wear.
