The back number used to be fixed in the unwritten law that stipulated that the keeper was number 1, the right back wore the shirt with number 2 and the left winger had number 11. At the 1974 World Cup, the Orange squad shone in alphabetical order. It was a good thing that mid-front Ruud Geels remained reserve with his number 1, because it was crazy enough that right back Wim Suurbier had 20 and keeper Jan Jongbloed 8. Johan Cruijff forced an exceptional position and whirled in West Germany with his number 14 But Willem van Hanegem had the World Cup number 3, while the 10 was made for him. It may sometimes be impossible to gauge the number on the back, the 10 remains the number that the playmaker appropriates, from Pelé to Ronaldinho, from Maradona to Messi and from Van Hanegem to Memphis.
We know the standard football items with superstars. What's there for the real fan? The lover of the misfits and the black football boot. That's what FC Kluif is for. We make original football clothing for football madmen. We are therefore proud to present our first men's swim shorts with iconic jersey numbers from football history. These swim shorts are made of 100% polyester microfiber with a 100% polyester inner bottom. The fit is relaxed and it falls just above the knee. The waistband can be tightened with a drawstring. The swim shorts also have a handy back pocket and a beautifully woven FC Kluif label.
We understand that you want to enjoy your FC Kluif swimming trunks for as long as possible. But that does require a bit of care. So we asked our mothers for some washing tips. For best results, wash your swimsuit inside out. Do not wash warmer than 30ºC and wash with similar colours. Use a mild detergent. Do not put it in the dryer and do not wring it dry at all. Dry your swimsuit by hanging it out (in the shade). Iron inside out and at a low temperature (see care label).
