The best Arsenal shirts for 2017 – A buyer’s guide

All, Product Review

Choosing the best Arsenal shirt is a tough job when there are just so many to choose from. Gone are the days of a simple red and white home kit, and a yellow and blue away kit.

You can check out our guide to Arsenal jackets here as well.

With three kits and so many extra items available, such as warm up kit, training kit and many more, choosing the best Arsenal shirt is hard for us hardcore fans when money is tight.

Puma Men’s Arsenal Home Shirt

The first Arsenal shirt is the standard Puma release red and white home shirt. We have had some measure of success with this one already, beating Chelsea at home earlier in the season, alas we’ve also had some disasters over recent weeks with THAT defeat by Watford at home last week which has derailed our title hopes.

Anyway, this shirt is a classic already, and many fans have given the home shirt great reviews on Amazon. We are sure you already love this shirt and it looks even better on than in the photos, plus it’s not too bad price-wise.

Here are a some reviews:

  • Brill as expected!
  • It is up there with the top 4 (Arsenal shirts I’ve ever bought). It is a much better fit than last years kit.
  • Excellent value for money.

Arsenal 1971 Replica Home Shirt

The second shirt we look at really is a classic shirt. We won the double in this one, including winning the league at White Hart Lane and the FA Cup at Wembley against Liverpool, with Charlie George grabbing the winner.

This shirt comes with a number seven embroidered on the back, a tribute to Liam Brady, and it has a nice plain old fashioned cannon on the front, reminding us of days gone by and the history associated with our great club.

The price on this one is also very good, and it’s a shirt every Arsenal fan should have in his locker. I have the long-sleeved version, and its a quality product, well made and nice and thick material. Remember this one will never go out of fashion or become ‘old’ like the current replica shirts.

One review states it comes up a little small, so perhaps order a size bigger that you would usually to be on the safe side.

Obviously a popular choice as a present, as you can see from a couple of good comments on this one:

  • Perfect gift for my dad, he loves it and reminds him of special times as an arsenal fan. Fit is great and he loves wearing it.
  • My son was absolutely delighted with his new shirt. good quality. superb…

Score Draw Men’s Arsenal 1979 FA Cup Final Retro Football shirt

I am a sucker for all things retro when it comes to Arsenal, and not just because I can’t fit into the slim fit current crop of replica kits! The third kit on the list is the 1979 Cup Final shirt. We found ourselves 2-0 up, coasting with five minutes to go, when the unthinkable happened, and United bought it back to 2-2. As we faced gruelling extra time, Graham Rix put in a deep cross and Alan Sunderland and his legendary perm popped up to head in at the far post and break United hearts.

Like the 1971 shirt above, this shirt is another good, solid 100% cotton shirt, with massive colours, and embroidered badges much like the players would have worn back in 1979.

The reviews on this one, also suggest to go up a size and make sure you wash it with like colours on the first wash.

  • Really good fit was a present for my step dad and really good quality
  • For Arsenal lovers its a ten out ten
  • Brilliant love it!

Puma Men’s Away 2016-17 Replica Shirt

Back to current replica kit now, and the yellow and grey away kit. This is a really nice looking shirt, I was very impressed when they released this one, especially like the stripes on the sleeves, and the colours are a bit unusual, so this one also gets a big thumbs up from me. It’s a little bit different from the cookie cutter feel you get from our other shirts.

You can choose names and numbers on the back from Amazon, and this also comes with the standard Puma DryCELL technology should you get a bit sweaty in the pub, I mean at football training. I think you need to be a bit careful with this one, as you can’t return anything which has names and numbers on the back, so make sure you’re sure before you shell out on this one.

Once again, great reviews across the board on Amazon:

  • Great value for money excellent customer service five stars
  • Arrived very quick. Very pleased
  • Good quality
