    Maybe I am unfamiliar with the “green” fabrics, but how do these mens soccer jerseys compare to previous or current jerseys in terms of performance?

    I feel like all of the jerseys and sportswear that has previously been marketed by athletic companies is about the lightweight and breatheability (sp?) of the product, rather than where the materials are sourced from.
