Wearing Swiss Shirts?

Ok....strange question here. Do the Swiss and residents living in Switzerland wear Swiss shirts with the flag and other Swiss logos etc?

Yes, well, at least my hubby does. He's got two shirts and a ball cap all with Swiss logos. (Although the cap was purchased to wear when visiting me in the US - his mother didn't take too kindly to the "Property of Daytona Beach" cap I gave him on a previous visit )

Re: Wearing Swiss Shirts?

My husband has a Swiss retro-footy shirt and there seem to be a fair amount around which suggests they are fairly popular. Like every nation, shirts bearing the national flag come out when Switzerland is playing an important game.

No, because outside Switzerland people will ask for medical assistance.

Re: Wearing Swiss Shirts?

Usually not.. it is mostly for tourist - but sometimes, we like to mix the game up, and play pretend...

Plus, they have some cool t-shirt now. I personally have a couple of Heidi-land ones.

Re: Wearing Swiss Shirts?

Generally no, unless it is for a sports or a political event.

Re: Wearing Swiss Shirts?

I have a Swiss footy shirt but I'm not Swiss, so it doesn't answer your question really!

It does if you are resident in Switzerland. I buy those Tshirts all the time. I think they are great. Im not one of those "this T shirt says something about me brigade" they are easy to buy, not so expensive and a bit of fun to wear.

Re: Wearing Swiss Shirts?

I think that wearing a jersey of your national team when the team is not playing is very much on the chav side. But many Swiss are a bit...

When living at home, you would never see me in one even during world cups. I bought my first Germany shirt when I moved here and it is probably the most controversial piece of clothing I have ever owned.

During the last championship I got
- Housewives in the Migros wishing me luck for the game, others staring at me extra-angrily...
- Italians on the street telling me what they think of Maradonna (when Germany was playing Argentina)
- half a primary school class booing, the other half cheering - the teacher was busy keeping them apart afterwards
- a picture of me and another EF member on page two of the Zurich edition of 20 minuten!

In short: Wearing a Swiss shirt in Switzerland is boring. Dare something more...

I do wear my Welsh shirt sometimes and all the Swiss just feel sorry for me!
