    With the World Cup in full swing, I was wondering what everyone thought about soccer jerseys.  In my opinion, it's the only athletic jersey that one can wear outside a sports arena and not look completely silly.  Is it appropriate attire for a club (assuming that the club doesn't have a strict dress code), or should it be relegated to ESPN Zone and similar establishments that serve buffalo wings and beer?

    Hm, my standard cryptic answer would be "depends on the club" and "depends on the time of year". For example, in Toronto, when the Leafs were making their Stanley Cup run, I saw quite a few hockey jerseys worn in clubs by both men & women. I think it looks a little silly outside of a sports bar, but what the hell. I see people wearing basketball jerseys all the time... some D&G pieces from the past few seasons are styled that way.

    I'm in agreement with you though, a football (soccer) jersey is probably the least silly of the major sports, and I'd say it's acceptable as long as it doesn't have a Chupa Chups or Dreamcast logo on it (stick to national teams.)

    Soccer Jersey's are good to wear if you support a certain club, player, or national team. They can be worn with jeans and sneakers, or casual shoes and pants if you want to send a message that you support a certain team during a match. National team jerseys are good to wear, but don't count out club teams, my club favorite is AC Milan, I don't care if they have Disney as their sponcer, they are my team I will support them thick and thin. So, yes you can wear club teams during the World Cup, especially if someplayer from the national team is playing for the club you like--(Man U. David Beckham/England) you can support England or him by wearing a Man U jersey because its and English club and you can infer that you are a supporter of England, without having to buy the national team jersey.

    I like soccer jerseys as club wear in the warm summer months. I think they're sporty without the cheese... I'm not as attached to the team that they represent, but I wouldn't go out in one without knowing at least a little about the team. Most of the European teams seem to have some stylin' jerseys now that I think about it.
