Today’s mail call features the lovely Cloud City top by Spirit Jersey. This isn’t a new release, but through a number of factors (mostly slow international mail), it is a recent arrival that I just wanted to share. I have admired Star Wars Spirit Jerseys ever since the first design, but sometimes it’s hard to find funds in the wallet for everything you want! I am so glad I waited, as this Cloud City Spirit Jersey definitely one of the best designs I’ve seen.

I have wanted a Star Wars Spirit Jersey for a while, but as an international fan, they end up being a bit more expensive to import. I knew that I wouldn’t be able to get lots of different designs, so I wanted to narrow down my choice and get my favourite, something that really stood out as being a bit more unique. When I spotted this soft blue and white tie-dye jersey, it was love at first sight. Something to really stand out in my wardrobe, not just another black sweatshirt.
The jersey has an all-over blue and white tie-dye, with a cloud-like mottled effect. This works so well for a Cloud City inspired design – the perfect cloudy sky as the background to the print. On the front, a small classic Star Wars logo is printed in a raised ‘puffy’ print in gradient purple colours, while the back features the text ‘Cloud City’ in the same puffy purple style but much larger. I love the pretty purple tones for the text, it adds a little bit extra than say, if they had stuck to a all-blue colour scheme.
Beneath the text on the back, there is a printed design of Cloud City and the Millennium Falcon. Obviously I have a soft spot for anything with the Millennium Falcon on it, so this was another selling point for me. The Falcon print has a very very soft pink/purple tone to it, with grey accents. I like the angle of the Millennium Falcon, flying towards Cloud City.
Spirit Jerseys convey a ‘team spirit’ style, so I really wanted a design I was truly a fan of. I love the aesthetic of Cloud City, and together with the Millennium Falcon and soft blue and white tie-dye, this is a great addition to my wardrobe. Now that I have one Spirit Jersey, I’m sure it won’t be long until I spot another Star Wars design I’d love to add to my collection.
