We have been through 3 shirts now for my 5 year old son. All washed as per the label instructions, all have had the gold peeling off. First 2 we had replaced, the 3rd we had our money back.
Spoke to the sales assistant who spoke to her supervisor and the message was that there are aware of issues with the black strip and it's the only one that they've had issues with out of all the kits with the same design.
Puma apparently won't do anything about it until at least 30% of the stock provided had been returned, so the club are fully aware there is an issue with the black shirts, but they claim they can't do anything to resolve the issue.
They did say they've ordered a new batch which they are expecting (hoping, more likely) will resolve the issue, but until that batch arrives they are still selling the current batch knowing there is a potential fault with them all.
Oh and my black shirt was also washed today for only the second time and guess what happened? Another trip back to the shop and another refund I think.
Stay clear of the black shirt I think is the lesson here!
Cant wait for the club to bin off Puma...
