Nike T-Shirt Jordan Men

First impressions

Over the years I have bought affordable t-shirts from a range of brands. I am not really too fussed about the branding, but the design is something I look for, and quirky slogans are most welcome. I try not to be too controversial because you do not know how people will react, but the slogan on this particular t-shirt is neither offensive or shows my opinion on anything.

The Nike brand is very popular when it comes to sporting goods, and along with clothing they also produce sports equipment. This is just a basic t-shirt in their range, and this type of thing can be picked up cheaply enough if you know where to look. Stores such as Sports Direct are full of sports clothing, and although we may not agree with their working practices (looking after staff etc) they are a cheap outlet for this kind of thing.

If you are looking for sports clothing then a bog standard t-shirt might not cut it for you. However, as I like the loose fitting casual t-shirts that Nike produce I am catered for in one trip to a sports store.

My experience

If you enjoy your sports clothing and in particular the Nike brand you will probably be aware of a guy called Michael Jordan. Unquestionably the greatest basketball player of all time, the link between Nike and ‘Jordan’ is priceless. The Michael Jordan name is synonymous with sports, and Nike know that they are going to be onto a winner when these brands team up.

Here we have a t-shirt, and you might not think there is anything special about it. A lot of these t-shirts have the ‘Jumpman’ logo on them, with the silhouette of Michael Jordan with a basketball in hand. If you pass a bunch of kids in the t-shirt we have here they may well ask you if you are selling your trainers, and this is because ‘Need J’s?’ is relating to Jordan’s, and the trainers that Nike produce. When you talk about J’s you are talking about the Nike trainers with the Michael Jordan link, and these are highly sought-after, and also highly collectible. Some of these pairs of trainers sell for thousands of dollars (or pounds).

The t-shirt we have here is rather plain, and other than the dark red text there is nothing else to catch our eye. The plain black tee is a staple of any wardrobe, but with the text on it I would say it can be worn to fewer social occasions.

Made from 50% polyester, 25% cotton and 25% rayon (viscose) it is a durable but lightweight material. The stitching is to a good standard, though this is a mass-produced item, and this is worth noting. This particular t-shirt shows that it was made in Mexico, though Nike have their products made all over the world, with Turkey one of their favourites from my experience. The quality is satisfactory, but we are not talking about designer quality, and each garment is certainly not checked individually for quality. I noticed a few loose threads, and this is something you should look out for, especially on the arms and around the bottom edge. The t-shirt is not going to disintegrate as soon as you wash it, but the quality is the same as a £2 t-shirt from Matalan or Primark, for example.

Price and availability

Prices vary widely according to the design and style you wish to choose. If the design you opt for is old stock then you pay be able to pick up a bargain, though you should always look out for fakes being sold online for a fraction of the typical cost of £20+. £20 for a t-shirt is quite a standard price for the major brands, though sports stores often have sales on, and I would be tempted to look in local sportswear stores before committing to buy online.

Final thoughts

The design has lasted a while on the t-shirt, though these transfers often last a couple of dozen washes and then they start to deteriorate. The t-shirt itself will be fine, but the transfer will start to wear, with the corners peeling or the design just cracking and crumbling off in places. This is not a cause for alarm, but it is worth noting that it will eventually happen.
