Hello! Long time, no see, right? It’s been forever since we last did an item review, and I’ve had this jersey for a while now. Last summer, when Kai went to California on his mini-vacation, he posted photos of himself at the beach wearing this vibrant blue '19' jersey. From the moment I first saw it, I wanted it. I already posted this on our fashion blog, EXD Style, but I wanted to share it here also so that everyone can see! Without further ado, here is my first fashion review: Champion Mesh Jersey Street Tank.
|Kai on his vacation to L.A. last summer. XD So close yet so far...|
This is the first product that EXO has worn that I’ve been able to purchase, so I was extremely happy when I found it available online. I ordered it and it arrived in about a week and a half. It came folded and wrapped in a clear plastic bag, with a Champion authenticity tag attached. The color is extremely bright and it looks exactly like the photos.
|Price: $20.00 |
I wanted to get a medium because that’s what Kai had, but I figured that since this is menswear, I should downsize. The small fit very well on me. I am 5′6″ (167cm) tall and I weigh 125 lbs. The jersey fits loosely on me and it kind of drops low under my armpits, so I recommend wearing bandeau or undershirt beneath. With or without an undershirt, the shirt keeps you cool during the summer, and it breathes very well.
Usually when I have it on, I pair it with some black jeans and low top All Stars. As it is a men’s jersey, it’s kind of long on me. It comes down to top of my thighs, so I tend to get a hair band and tie it on the side. You could let it hang if you’d like, but I always tend to tie it.
However, if you are on the shorter side, the small will probably appear to be like a shirt dress on you. Again, hair ties are your best friend.
|This is no lie. The colors really are that bright.|
|Got a small instead of the medium|
|Another awkward photo because I'm no professional xD.|
Cleaning: I have used a washing machine once (on delicate wash), but next time I think I’ll just hand wash it. Also, make sure you let it air dry, because someone mistakenly threw mine in the dryer and it caused a little pull in some of the threads *cries*.
I always get a ton of compliments whenever I wear this and I always feel kind of special having it on. (I feel closer to Kai…or something…**delusional**). If you live in America, I definitely recommend ordering from here. It’s the only place I could find it available, and it’s also marked down, so you’ll be saving $20.
I recommend this item to anyone who wants to try out a boyish/tomboy look. It's a nice, unique item to have in your wardrobe and sure to draw stares from passerby. I haven't come across any other EXO fan who is able to recognize this jersey, but if that happens, then cool. :)
Pros: Loose, comfortable fit, Vibrant Colors, Stands out
Cons: Loose threads from washing with a machine
