Review: Liverpool away jersey 11/12
By MM Sports Liverpool ambassador Debra Capp and family
Recently, I requested MM Sport send us a Liverpool FC 2011/12 away jersey in a child’s size for my son, Lachie. Immediately he tore open the package and held up the shirt I knew I’d made a mistake. I should have ordered the woman’s size. For me.
This is a beautifully stylish garment, in solid grey and silver with red trim. The cut of the jersey features a shallow V neck with red piping; inserted shoulder panels and shaped side panels. This means a very flattering fit: a shirt that will look good on anyone. Understated vertical drop stitch stripes provide a background for the metallic silver lettering of the Club’s sponsor and the mock appliqué Liverpool FC crest in silver Lurex. If, like me, you appreciate different textures on a garment, you will enjoy the suede feel of the flocked Premier league badges and player’s name/number as well as the shiny smoothness of the embossed Adidas logo. For those who look for detail, see if you can find the holograms that appear in two places on the shirt.
The fabric used is Climacool; developed by Adidas to wick moisture from the underside of the material to the exterior enabling the body to stay cooler and drier during strenuous exercise.
My son’s verdict: really comfortable.
Where we live in the southern part of Australia, soccer and Aussie rules are the prevailing football codes. Our beautiful country town of Castlemaine has a vibrant soccer club including a strong female component. Lachie’s team boasts a number of Liverpool FC supporters, including the coach, so he was eyed with envy when he arrived at training in one of the latest jerseys.
As usual, delivery was most prompt. Thank you MM Sport.
I hope you enjoy the photos I’ve include of my sons Lachie and Oscar in their Liverpool FC gear from MM Sport.
