With Umbro bang on point yet again, West Ham’s new home kit for 2015/16 both pays homage and waves goodbye to the club’s home of 111 years.

As the Hammers gear up for one last season at Upton Park before moving into the Olympic Stadium down the road, they will do so wearing a kit inspired by the very first strip worn by the Hammers at the Boleyn Ground in 1904 (also made by Umbro)…


Perfect. Claret shirts, blue sleeves, white shorts. Just as nature intended.

There are also subtle pieces of detailing in gold dotted around the shirt to further mark the occasion…

And the famous John Lyall gates on the back of the neck…


Initial reaction has been unilaterally positive across the board, with droves of eager West Ham fans even crashing the club’s website in the minutes after the first photos began circulating on social media.

We love it. You?
