Sonal Salvi, the PR and Communications Manager of Suditi industries contacted me regarding the football merchandise from her company that she had been promoting.
Her mail said:

My Take: Having seen my Facebook post for product reviews, Sonal set the ball rolling asking if I could do the review of a product from her company. I asked, why not?
As usual, I left the choice of the product to the company and they decided to send me a T-shirt. But she also told me that they have only merchandise meant for men. I had no problem since I was planning to give this tee to my nephew, who is very crazy about football.
Thus on her request I told her that we would need a size 42. One day she told me for my convenience that they had couriered the tee. I received the same the next day itself.
We opened the packet with enthusiasm, because I like to gift things to my nephew and I was excited that I would give football merchandise for the first time to him. A jet black cloth peeped out of the outer packet. Hurriedly I opened the packet, to see that the tee has a background colour – black, with medium-sized yellow and burnt pink solid circles on it. It also has the number 10 and the emblem (logo) of the Barcelona team. When worn around the place where we have the diaphragm, FC Barcelona is also written across it.
The fabric of the tee is very soft and comfortable. My nephew loves it.
The Tee can be purchased from: https://www.riotjeans.com/footbal-apparel-store/barcelona/barcelona-t-shirt-and-polos.html
