West Ham have launched their new away kit for 2015/16 with a bit of help from Mark Noble, Aaron Cresswell and new signing Dmitri Payet – a celebratory kit that goes hand-in-hand with their new ‘Boleyn’ home strip.

Inspired by the Hammers’ 1901 jersey and marking the imminent culmination of the club’s 112-year residency at Upton Park, Umbro have smashed it out of the ground and into the carpark once again with this stunning little claret and blue – or should that be blue and claret? – number.

Achingly gorgeous are the words we’d used to describe, and it looks even better up close…

    Can’t say I’m a fan of Umbro’s recent tendency of plastering their name on the sleeves. It seems to go against their carefully considered uncluttered aesthetic.

    that boleyn ground 1904 to 2016 bit made me sad :(

    VfB Stuttgart in a glass of milk and Powerade. Still like it. Pretty classy.

    Aston Villa – as the whole World knows – are the “Original Claret and Blue”. It’s a lovely kit but, then, all variations of Villa’s kit are lovely.
