Star Wars compression T-shirt: Use the Force

Under Armour offers film related base layers

If you’re getting caught up in the whole Star Wars hype at the moment and you feel the need to express it through the medium of a compression base layer, JD Sports stocks these Under Armour Star Wars options. Presumably, the Force will be with you… always.

These are made from lightweight fabrics with 4-way stretch and they’re said to be fast drying. 

They’re both from the dark side, though. There’s a white stormtrooper one and a black Darth Vader one. Yoda version there is not (sorry, but it’s a journalist’s duty to stick in torturous quotes and/or references when mentioning Star Wars; it's what they teach us at college).

Right, that’s enough of that nonsense. They’re 45 quid a pop. www.jdsports.co.uk
