Review- Art of Football Designs

Every year I struggle for presents at Christmas for my Dad. He is of that certain generation where he either doesn't understand the present you try to give him or fed up with another pair of socks!

The problem with my dad and I is the fact that we are so different. I am geeky and into reading and quite isolated where he is more bubbly, into his films and sport mad!

Yet, when it comes to his likes, such as sport, I am at a loss at what is good or isn't because I am not on that wave length. That was, at least, until I was contacted by the Art of Football team

The Art of Football appears initially to be "just another t-shirt company" but on closer inspection they off so much more.

Every t-shirt made is presented as the company name suggests, as a piece of art work.

They have taken the football fans sheer love of the sport and truly pushed it to a new level. They understand that many fans out there experience the highs and lows, week on week, of the favourite teams and really connect with every movement, lose and victory.

Within this own understanding they have produced something outside of the standard football t-shirt which, even from an outsiders point of view, look crude, generic and only out to make more money because each season offers a slightly new and subtle design change.

Thousands of people buy those shirts and do so to show unity to their favourite team. Yet, Art of Football turns that teams highlights into a piece of art and then places it onto a t-shirt capturing that moment and that love for your team all in one go.

On ordering a shirt for my dad I instantly noticed the care and love put into the product when it arrived. Each gift is wrapped in a football themed packaging.

I ordered a large for my dad and the size fitted absolutely perfectly. My Dad supports our local team Gillingham but I found the 1966 England frame just as perfect.

It is the exact scene when Hurst scores and England beat West Germany 4 - 4 after extra time to win. In the final seconds of the match Wolsten said "They think it's all over! It is now!"

The 100% cotton shirt feels and looks fantastic and the added presence of each design looking modern and artistic makes this a shirt that really stands out!

From a person with very little football knowledge and with that a sporty family member that I was unsure of a gift for Art of Football gave me an affordable solution. The designs are available in different moments in history for that team and keep to a similar artistic form. The shirts are currently RRP £25.00 and are a good choice this Christmas!

You can find out more information on the shirts from visiting their Website here or Twitter here.
