Review: Chelsea base tee
By MM Sports Chelsea ambassador Ray Pottenger
Chelsea Soccer Tee (Grey) A Simple Shirt for Complex People.
There are seven days in a week, and society, with their “rules of decorum,” or at least your significant other, necessitates you change and launder daily. Sure you have the home, away and alternate jerseys, but what will you wear on the fourth day while you’re doing laundry? How about the Adidas Chelsea Soccer Tee?
The tee comes in a great heather grey with blue adidas stripes running along the shoulders. It also has a royal blue ringer collar. No one will forget what side you’re supporting as there is a Chelsea patch stitched onto the left breast and the adidas logo embroidered on the right.
The material is 100% cotton and is as soft as Mata’s first touch. Unlike a lot of shirts where the sleeves are attached at the shoulder, these sleeves are attached at the collar, much like the baseball tees that have come into style over the years. The fabric, the stitching in the seams and the details are very high quality and should last a good long while.
In case you were wondering about what I mean about the sleeves.
The shirt fits well but runs a bit loose. If you are on the small end of your normal sizing you may want to order down a size. Also, because of the style of the sleeves, they hit the upper half of the arm a little bit lower than your traditional jersey or tee.
In sum, this is a great addition to my shirt rotation. It’s great for hitting up a pub to watch the match or lounging around the house. Adidas makes a quality product and, barring unforeseen staining issues, this shirt should last a long time.
