Review: Inter home jersey 11/12
By Inter ambassador Joe Palatano
F. C. Internazionale Milano is an organization with a cult following, folklore-like history and tradition. Inter fans are not only some of the most passionate in the world… They are also some of the best-dressed tifosi around.
The 2011/2012 Nike Inter jersey is a classic, well-built product fit for any fan of “Pazza Inter”, a club and squad which shares these qualities. The shirt is perfect to wear around – whether supporting at home, or showing off the nerazzurri colors with friends (or rivals).
Narrow-striped with a vibrant blue and black, this Inter Milan kit is everything the customer would expect – a perfect fan piece, and stylish option in your closet.
My Inter shirt came with kit name and number Pazzini 7 perfectly applied – secure, and of authentic, highest quality. With added value accents such as black and blue stitching at the seams, bold Inter crest, in-collar St. George’s Cross flag, and ‘inter’ stylized screening at the back of the neck – this is surely a collector’s item to show off.
The first aspect that really stands out about the Nike Internazionale 11/12 jersey is that it is collared. Collars on football shirts can be a love-hate relationship. They can really make or break the look of the jersey, as well as the fun-to-wear factor.
If you’ve had any reservations regarding collared football kits in the past, forget them – this one is both enjoyable to wear and quite stylish.
Inter have opted for collarless over the past few seasons, but this one just seems to fit right with the club and its English origins in general. The collar sits well on the neck and collarbone and always retains its shape – the firm, no slouch short collar blends seamlessly into the shirt itself. Forget intrusive collars, there’s no fuss or hassle with this classic one-button football shirt collar.
The material is a lightweight slightly dimpled or textured Nike Dry-Fit fabric that falls lightly on the shoulders and chest, thus making it really quite comfortable to wear.
Unlike football shirts from other kit manufacturers, the fit of this Inter jersey is not restricting at all. It is loose and airy in all the right places, giving the fan a comfortably full range of movement – yet it is form fitting with a flattering cut, meaning this shirt will not just hang there off of your back.
My shirt was delivered with Coppa Italia and Club World Cup patches attached. These add-ons arrived well applied in the appointed places, with a manufacturer-direct level of craft and attention to detail. The shirt adorned with patches really adds value by displaying the accomplishments of the squad – you can’t help but feel like a fully decorated military general in this thing.
Without a doubt, this shirt is one gorgeous Inter Milan replica jersey. From the overall fit, to the style, the classic elements to the authentic cup and championship patches from MM Sport – my F.C. Inter Milan jersey is a standout item.
