For those of us who are passionate football fans, we all love to show our allegiance to the club, by always wearing a football shirt, jacket or other item of clothing with the beloved crest of our team on display for all to see.

Whether you are wearing the latest piece of kit, or going for a more nostalgic look, football kits are comfortable, look good ( with a few exceptions) and are quick and easy to wash. Unfortunately, however much we love our football kits, our partners may not share our enthusiasm, and even we have to acknowledge that there are some occasions when wearing a football shirt may not be acceptable for the occasion. Here is an infographic on the worst ever football kit designs:

Unless you are a fashion guru, or fancy giving up a entire Saturday with your partner tramping round clothes shops (in my opinion a fate worse than death) shopping for clothing on the internet could be your best option.

Not only will you save time, but you will also potentially save money especially if you can find a site such as Standout, that sells top quality designer clothes at bargain prices. Before you go wild, though, here are some things you need to take into consideration when buying clothing online.

Know Your Size’s

This might sound like a really stupid thing to say, but ordering items, and then having to send them back because you got the sizes wrong is a lot of extra hassle that you don’t need and can be easily avoided. Make sure you know your sizes, don’t just guess.

Be Aware That Colours May Vary

Although computer technology has come on leaps and bounds, when ordering certain colours, how they appear on a computer monitor may vary compared with in real life. This is one of the negative aspects of buying online, and you will need to be a little bit flexible if you want to benefit from shopping online.

Check The Returns Policy

Nobody buys clothing with the intention of returning an item, but it is important that you fuly understand the returns process before committing yourself to a purchase. Will you have to pay to return an item? Do you have to use a certain carrier? Will they collect it from your home address? All of those questions are important to know before you buy.

Research Brand Types And Sizes

While you might expect all clothes to fit the same, the reality is that certain manufacturers clothing will come up small, or large. A little bit of detective work will quickly guide you on this, meaning that you can factor in those details when choosing your sizes. Keep a mental note yourself of how your favourite manufacturers clothing fits you.

Buying designer clothing might not be as fun as buying the latest football shirt, but once you wear it, you will begin to appreciate the extra quality, and much as I hate to admit it, it does look and feel much better.

Hopefully, some of the tips above will help you to get a great deal and impress your partner with your new look.

    So let me stop reminiscing of days gone by and let me focus on our Welsh wonder. Let me start off by saying that I think it is quite obvious that Aaron Ramsey is better in central midfield. His partnership with Mesut Özil, his running from deep and his underrated ball winning ability makes him a ...Read more
