Anyone know how the new tops are sized? Specifically the away top?

OS says large is 42/44" chest and xl is 46/49", which seems a bit of a difference. Are they smaller than they say like normal?

has anyone bought one of our shirts from Sports Direct before? I see they sell them online, but does anyone know if they stock them in store?

Tried the away shirt on earlier at my local sports direct - have to say it feels very cheap :(

The large was almost skin tight so it would be XL for me, which fitted better, but I am certainly not bigger than a 46" chest.

I had high hopes for the away, but seeing/feeling it in the flesh and I might go for a home one now.

We'll probably borrow their away kit or something.

Went into the branch at Chancery Lane and was surprised to see these in the shop alongside Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea and Spurs.

They do in Gallions Reach and they used to in Westfield but they changed their layout to put the kits with their brand and don't seem to have an Umbro section.

Strong rumours that we will have a plain sky blue 3rd shirt (maybe full kit) that will be a lot like the navy Ironworks commemorative kit from last season.

I would assume it is purely logistical. Not everyone can easily pop to either Stratford, Lakeside or Romford. But Sports Direct are all over the place.

I'm probably a lot more likely to my one of those polos than I am an actual shirt, to be honest.

Looks much better on a person than a hanger (as per the leaks), funny that.

No, not at all - I actually quite like it (although the sleeves I am not keen on). It's more a matter of finances and what I'll actually get some wear out of. Of the three West Ham shirts I have, the one I wear most is the 1980 cup final one because it just looks like a white polo shirt. I might wear the other ones sometimes, but much rarer.
