The N98 Jacket worn by Nolito is on the list

Mancitygifts’ @thegingerwig paid a visit to the Man City store at the Etihad for it’s grand opening on 14th July and the launch of the official Manchester City home kit 2016/17 season.

Here he looks at his top 5 picks from the visit

1) Authentic Grand Slam Polo Shirt

I was actually surprised by this one as I’d seen it online and had dismissed it. However the cunning people at the Man City Store had put it on a manikin and it looked really good.

Available online at the Official Man City Store

 2) Man City Crest Cushion

Manchester City Crest Cushion 35cm

Not quite as good as Mancitygifts’ #CityCushion this cushion is more suitable for a child’s bedroom. With a colour version of the new Manchester City crest on one side and a sky Blue on dark blue crest on the other it really stood out in the shop.

Officially known as “Manchester City Crest Cushion 35cm

3) The “Nolito” Jacket

Nolito Jacket

Ok it’s not officially the “Nolito” Jacket but I’ve been asked loads of times about the jacket and everyone called it that!

The “Manchester City Authentic N98 Track Jacket – Navy” (now you know why people shorten it!) has a zip stand up collar and zipped pockets on either side. Think this will be a common sight at the Etihad this season.

4) Printed Crest T-shirt Maroon Marl

Before anyone says it’s not red! Maroon is a traditional City colour you only have to look at some of our previous kits.

The Marl range of City T-shirts come in 5 colours Maroon, Grey, Navy, Sky Blue and Aster Blue. Personally the crest on the Maroon top stood out the best although Stephen from BlueMoonRisingTV was wearing the grey one for this video.

5) City 47 Two Tone cap – Black/ sky blueMan City 47 two tone cap

Now I don’t often buy new hats (the Ginger Wig is now in it’s 18th season – it does get washed occasionally!) but this stood out in the shop. Perhaps it is the vivid sky blue on the black which made it stand out but amongst the caps this was the best.

Unfortunately the 47 has nothing to do with City and is the American brand who make the caps. It would have been nice to be 1894 but we can’t have everything. The hat itself is quite rigid in its design with an embroided “City” on the front.

So there you have @thegingerwig’s top 5 picks from the 1st visit to the new Man City store. More stock is arriving so look out for further picks as the season progresses.
