This was everything I was hoping it would be. As a Giants fan, this is as throwback as it gets. You can feel the quality of the shirt and the patch. The patch sits nicely over the left chest. The sleeves weren't as long as I thought the might be (which is good-- I thought it would sit awkwardly at my elbows). The buttons go all the way down to my sternum... which is certainly unique (but true to its past!) This is a great way to sport my team at work while meeting the "collar" requirement.
