The Right Gift

27 Dec

Since last Spring – or maybe even back to indoor last winter – Aidan has been noticing when he saw soccer jerseys at practices or out on the streets. I’ve been wanting to find the right shirt for him (and Evan) for a while.


During the Christmas season, I was able to find the England 2010 World Cup Away jersey (the beautiful red Umbro design) in Kitbag’s Outlet section. I knew they would be a hit for them both and well priced.

Christmas morning they were both excited when they opened them and put them on almost immediately.

I’m really a fan of Umbro’s designs and build quality. Rather than being a simple synthetic shirt in youth size, the Umbro shirts include their performance features like a mesh back. There’s also a lot of great tailoring on side panels and around the neck. Unlike so many sports jerseys for kids I see in the US, these fit very well.
