    lol well im from california and never been to england and i still think this is a great shirt…

    i really prefer the understated classiness of this jersey…i own it and i must say its a very well constructed and tailored shirt.

    i guess i just prefer old school and classy over new school and flashy. much how i prefer a whiteout legend over a citron vapor.

    it just seems many jerseys as of late are getting ridiculous looking, whats wrong with some minimalism?

    i dunno, to each their own i guess.
