We took particular inspiration from the dress of the Pauliteiros de Medina. Over centuries, those from the mountainous and Celtic-influenced north perfected a kind of stylized, baton-wielding martial art, possibly as a way to keep their fighting skills sharp. Batons are held in both hands - one is for attack, and the other for defence. Not a bad metaphor for soccer.
The Portugal Shirt in Vintage Red is part of our special Ribbon Collection. (You can read about our Ribbon concept here). The shirt features an ultra-soft, broken-in tri-blend fabric with just the right amount of stretch to it, and it features a beautiful, unique graphic design. It's the perfect shirt for match day.
