Before I bought this and the Mainz shirt, I was under the impression that Lotto football shirts were very run of the mill and a safe option for some of the world's less resourceful clubs. However this opinion changed greatly once I saw the sort of shirts they were designing now. Many people will look at the spilled ink/paint effect on the shoulders and dismiss it straight away, claiming that it's garish and ruins what could have been a nice and elegant shirt. Whilst there is a case for that to be made, I contend that the unique style allows the shirt and thus the club, to break out from the large heard of clubs who use the same templates by the same few manufacturers. The only drawback with this shirt is that it is a small medium. It's possible that it's a European medium which I believe translates into a UK small.
