Fan hits out at Lewis Hamilton’s store after receiving damaged shirt

A fan was left short-changed after purchasing a shirt from Sir Lewis Hamilton's store.

A fan was left disappointed after they purchased an expensive shirt from Sir Lewis Hamilton’s merchandise store, and are not receiving a reply from his customer service team.

The seven-time champion has long been working with some of the biggest names in the fashion world, including Tommy Hilfiger and Louis Vuitton, designing fashion lines and quirky fashion items.

Hamilton can often be seen turning up to racetracks expressing himself with unique items of clothing, including kilts, snazzy suits, hats and oversized shirts.

Fashion and music are notorious passions for the Mercedes driver outside of Formula 1, so it was only a matter of time until he released his own clothing brand.

After learning from the very best designers in the business, Hamilton launched the +44 brand earlier this season, reflecting his race number.

The shop features just about any item of clothing you can think of, from shirts, to tank tops, jackets, hats and much, much more.

Most of the clothing is priced at over £100 pounds, with some of them setting you back nearly a grand, and several of the items have already sold out in the last couple of months.

One fan managed to find a shirt from the store that cost them $84 dollars (£73.88), but when it arrived, they were disappointed.

They posted a picture of the shirt on Reddit, and it appeared to have holes and scorch marks on it, suggesting that it was damaged at the workshop.

They revealed that they have tried to reach out to the customer service team, but have not yet received a reply regarding their damaged goods.

It is somewhat symbolic of what has been a less than ideal last couple of days for Hamilton, after a crash in Singapore saw him finish ninth.

Team-mate, George Russell, ended up 14th after two incidents of his own, so the British drivers are looking to bounce back in Japan this weekend.
