Nice shirt....substandard quality
on 18 March 2013
As a Chelsea fan myself, I bought this shirt by mail order on the day it was released. I wish I'd seen better photos of it as I have to say I'm not really impressed with it. For one, I bought the limited edition "Champions Of Europe" home shirt with the embroidered gold star above the badge and the "Champions of Europe" printing on the back. But as soon as I took it out of the packet, I noticed that the printed Samsung sponsor was marked. After wearing the shirt for the first time, the same happened to the printing on the back of the shirt. Not only that, after ONE wash, the material started to bobble. After a second wash, it looked like I'd had the shirt for YEARS. So I sent it back and received a replacement. The same thing happened again. Then I bought the standard edition shirt (without the Champions Of Europe printing). But after the fifth or sixth wash, the material started to look worn again. I have had no trouble with any other Chelsea shirt I've bought from Adidas (this season's away and third shirt still look like brand new). But I'm just glad Chelsea are changing this one in May 2013.
