This is… Well… Erm… It’s pretty difficult to try and explain this. The Pirlo appreciation, from us at least, started a good few years ago, before the beard. A man who plays football beautifully, has lovely hair, relaxes at home drinking wine, dresses well and has great facial hair. That is pretty much all we look for in a player of association rules, however, we did realise that it wasn’t just us that loved Pirlo, turns out there are loads of like minded weirdos like us.
So we thought we should make some t-shirts for you to display your love for l’architetto when home or abroad. With that we sent an email to Tom J Newell, he shook his head a bit, got together an illustration for us and we did the rest. Adorning the front of the t-shirt is the scudetto shield, which has adorned Pirlo’s shirt for many seasons and his beloved number 21. I’d say it doesn’t really get much better than that.
The t-shirts are available in Navy blue, sizes S – XL and priced at £30. They go on sale Friday at 7PM so with any luck you should have one to watch the Champions League final in. If you do miss out on the first release, don’t worry we should be passing more through very soon. Thanks and please don’t call the police, we already have a restraining order.
