Man United shirt

I can't believe I'm asking this but...

A friend of my daughters has asked her to get him an authentic Manchester United shirt when she is in London next week.

Where would be the easiest place to buy something like this? Not necessarily the cheapest but the easiest. Preferably around the Oxford Street area.

Would Selfridges have somethign like this?

At least you put it on the London forum, where most of the fans live!

Sorry couldn't resists it

Just find a Sports shop such as JJB or DW , just be wary of fake ones in unauthorised stores , street markets These are still xpensive but of poorer quality.

Authentic

I would take to mean as being identical in appearance to those worn by the team

Authorised by the club

Of the same quality as the team issue

Same as those sold in the licensed outlets such as the club's own stores and online

Manufactured by the same company as those worn by the team

long lasting

Not cheap shoddy attempts at replicating the above and which wear and wash badly

I hope that this helps Nick

> Of the same quality as the team issue

I don't think any of the ones sold in the high street are that, are they? All the ones I've seen, even in (general, not MU) club shops, are a nasty polyester-like material.

I think Manchester United have at least 4 different shirts (so they can fleece the fans) worth finding out the one your daughters pal wants
