Mine's arrived, and it's every bit as good as I'd hoped.  Love it.

Now, can we put a call into those nice people at Le Coq Sportif...?

What's the material like please?  Is it like a t-shirt or more shiny like a more modern footy kit?

What is the fitting like please? I'm sure i read earlier to order a size lower than normal, as they were quite big, but i can't find the quote now.

Cheers

Just received mine today..... It is a thing of beauty!     :)

I have a version of that but without the Umbro on the sleeves - it is in an Airtex material and I love it

That Umbro one is my fave shirt of all time
I'm fairly certain the original was an airtex type material too.

I had all 3 Umbro retro shirts arrive in the post today. Unfortunately I was sent the wrong size of the 80/81 home so canít comment on that. The away is a thing of beauty. I got a size lower than usual and it fits a treat. Itís feels like a kind of cotton and nylon combo and the material is stretchy. The 92/93 home is a bit more true to size and is pretty much a bang on replica of the official shirt I had as a kid as far as I remember. Felt sponsor and all.

I read elsewhere (MOMS facebook page) that the sizing is large and a few people were suggesting order a size down.

Iím usually wavering between small and medium so ordered both...the small is plenty big enough so Iíd agree  - size down

Had the 1980 home turn up today.

Very good quality (not fashioned from inch thick cloth like the non Umbro retro shirts are).

I wish they'd do the 1992 white away shirt.

Didn't know Umbro were still a going concern. Were the originals back in the day made by Umbro?

Are they light enough to play 5-a-side in?

Can just imagine myself strolling around the pitch in one.

Yep, loved that one.  This would be a good one as well:

Regarding this umbro away retro shirt. I see medium and large are sold out. So will have to look elsewhere for them . I'm normally an xl, but understand the chest measurement is 25 inches (which seems massive). Is anybody on here who has this shirt in medium or large able to put the measurement on here please. Cheers
