The Campo Experience…Empire Black/Old Whie

Campo Retro has formed a niche and established itself in it, with many football fans having a deep liking for nostalgic retro gear. It was a wide market and Campo Retro are leaders in it in terms of quality and collection.

They say the first impression lasts, and creates a permanent opinion in the minds of the viewer. This certainly is true and Campo formed a fantastic first impression. I was greeted with this beautifully packaged product from Campo and was incredibly impressed with the standard it set. What was even more pleasing than the carry bag was the paper packaging below it with legendary footballers displayed upon it. It’s always nice to open a package and see George Best greeting you.




The minimalist design for the Empire range oozed of class and immediately grabbed my attention. So simple, yet so classy. A beautiful retro piece in every sense of the word. As a Juventus admirer, this seemed a must have shirt but it could very well be passed off as a Newcastle shirt, or one worn by Brazilian side Botafogo. But it could so easily be mistaken for a Grimsby Town kit or even a Partizan Belgrade one for you hipsters out there.


You’ll be pleasantly surprised by the material of the shirt. What initially appears to be a typical jersey material actually has a nice soft velvety touch to it. Soft and comfortable, you’ll be in awe of how well the shirt has been done up. Initially my intentions were to wear this for my weekly football outing but the quality is too much to spoil on the astro turf, this is meant for a classier event. And yes, keeping in line with the retroness, the poster you can see in the background is of David Beckham, from 11 years back. Who wasn’t a Beckham fan then eh?

I’ve always been a fan of longer sleeved shirts as opposed to the shorter versions. While most footballers these days are seen wearing short sleeved kits, the long sleeves on this one creates a real feel of the retro look the Empire collection intended to create.


And to add to this, there’s a nice little Campo badge alongwith the entire package which is a nice bonus as well. Who doesn’t love surprises? The shirt comes with a pin badge placement on the hem, to easily attach the steel accessory. Although it can be used anywhere.

All in all, Campo Retro has done a remarkable job, setting benchmarks in serving the nostalgic feelings of football fans and setting standards in the apparel sector.
