I’ve now tested the Wigan inspired Campo Retro shirt and can confirm it’s a winner. Due to The Bernabeu’s versatility it can be worn at matches as well as casual attire – looking great in both situations. The soft, light material gives the shirt a comfortable feel.
Special features such as the stitched white-on-white Campo logo really add to the quality look of the shirt. Of all the great details, the design of the collar stands out the most. It allows you to wear the collar raised without it losing it’s shape, despite being made from a soft cotton material. This is due to reinforcement within the rim which gives a rigid hold.
I wouldn’t normally wear a collar raised, but with The Bernabeu it adds an extra dimension to the look of the shirt, especially with the block of blue hiding underneath.
The two blue stripes are bold and striking against the base white colour. You can tell the high quality of the product by the well tailored fit and quirky features. The shirt washes very well and although I’ve not had it long the material appears hard wearing and should last for some time.
The packaging supplied with the product is first class and makes your purchase from Campo feel like a special present for any lucky receiver. It comes with colourful printed wrapping paper as well as a smart pull string plastic shoulder bag.
To top it off there is a small Campo logo pin badge supplied as an extra little treat. Campo have even designed a small area of the shirt where you can fit your pin badge to without having to worry about damaging the shirt.
I am extremely impressed with my first Campo product and it certainly won’t be the last one in my collection. You will not be disappointed.
