Olympique Marseille 2012-13

My most recent Marseille shirt, purchased from classic football shirts. This is the standard version of the away shirt, which has the embroidered badges, the TechFit and Formotion versions have screen printed badges and also come in a tighter fit.
The shiny striped pattern on the front reminds me of a classic Adidas shirt from the 80's, like the Liverpool "Candy" kits.

Lyon Away Shirt 2011-12

Continuing my tradition of collecting Lyon shirts here is last seasons away effort. I've been after this shirt for a while, nearly brought it from the official Lyon site in the clearance section, but postage to the UK was something extortionate like £15. I ended up getting this from eBay for the bargain price of £12, it is used but hardly a mark on it.
As Lyon shirts go this is quite a tame effort, bordering on the boring, but cross hatch pattern woven into the front gives it something extra. I noticed this is the same template as the Chicago Fire shirt I have (which I will upload later on), although the collar is slightly different.

FC Luzern Home 2012-13

FC Luzern of Switzerland. This was a very random purchase from TK Maxx, better still it was only £16.99. I've since found out this was last seasons shirt, which I suspected anyway given it was in TK Maxx.  I believe this is the Estro template although it has been modified to include the pin stripes. I shall be looking out for the current Luzern shirt as it uses the Campeon template like Fulham and Southampton away.
