Mexico Home World Cup 2014

Adding to my collection of World Cup 2014 shirts is the Mexico home shirt. I remember reading an article in the Guardian that this was the "hipsters" choice of World cup shirt. I can see why with its retro 80's style but with the modern twist, it uses the Adidas template very well. I really love the little touches on this shirt, the subtle stripes and the Mexican flag incorporated into the horizontal line across the shoulder are fantastic. I did plan to get this shirt printed up with Watford Mexican international Miguel Layun but I cant seem to find the printing anyhwere.

Lazio Special Edition Home Shirt 2015

I've wanted this shirt since I saw leaked pictures of its release a while back on the internet. Its based on the famous kit worn by Lazio in the 1986-87 season. I believe this is a special edition shirt which was released in limited numbers. The shirt was released to celebrate 115 years of the Rome club. Quite how I came to find it on eBay and win the bid for less that £20 I don't know! I was convinced it would be a fake (especially as it came from that horrible little town in Bedfordshire down the M1) but I've inspected it thoroughly and seems legit to me. The numbering on the back really finishes the shirt off and adds to the retro 80's style, defiantly one of my all time favorite shirts....

Celta Vigo Home 2014-15

Probably my favorite use of the Adidas Condivo 15 template here, just love the colours and the woven pattern of the front. I ordered this from in their end of season sale and got it delivered to Spain while I was on holiday to save money on the postage costs. I didn't quite realise at the time it was the adizero player version so even the medium comes up very tight (along with a very gluttonous holiday!) I even ordered two sizes but managed to sell the other smaller shirt on eBay for more than I payed for it anyway.

Marseille Third 2015-16

Its been a while since I posted on here but back with a bang now for the new 2015/16 season.....
As usual Marseille released their shirts very early on in the summer and this is next seasons third shirt. I'm not 100% sure which template this is but I think its the Tiro 15.  They follow the tradition of using light blue in their change strips, which means they can easily swap the home and away shorts around if required.
I managed to pick this up on eBay for £20, seemed a little too good to be true but it came with all original tags, if it is a fake its fooled me! Personally I prefer last seasons Adidas templates with the horizontal line on the back, this template seems a little plain but the stripes add a little extra to the design.
