Is it white or sky blue? This link makes it look sky blue.

The kids one without a sponsor is gonna be lush.
For me though, this as a home shirt, with claret body, proper West Ham blue sleeves and collar, and that would be the best home shirt we've had in a very long time. IMO it would also sell buckets loads meaning the club gain.

Fair play jumby. A white shirt and light blue shorts and socks is basically just porn but this looks like it has a blue tinge to it. What colour shorts/socks would it look best with?

Anyone against the London badge should by this. Our owners would listen if they saw another badge is more lucrative...

I wouldn't be completely surprised if it had it's own set - the other third kits I'm aware of do (Arsenal, Bournemouth, Liverpool, Newcastle). Mind you, no idea what you'd go with - probably the same colour?

Think it's a genuinely lovely shirt.

I'm hoping it has either sky blue or claret shorts, I'd go with the same for the socks or even go with the white home ones. The badge is beautiful and even the sponsor doesn't ruin it. This is the nicest shirt in the league, Umbro have it in them to produce this, which makes it even more frustrating when you look at the monstrosity, imo, that the home shirt is!

I find this shirt pretty refreshing like the TIWFC one from last year.

That is a nice shirt - especially enhanced by the badge. Just as the TIWFC one was last year.

As someone posted earlier - it should be our away kit - the black is dreadful.

The badge is iconic. There is no need for us to have our name on our badge, and certainly no need for London.

The crossed hammers are plain and simple and say it all.

The people who run this club need to listen to the people who support it. IMHO the majority of us like tradition. We like claret and blue and white.

This shirt is a start - long may it last!

I don't think they would. They spent a fortune on that new bloody badge. The best we can hope is that they use it in single colour as per the away kit and all of the training kit.

I really think they would Sutts. They are businessmen. They are not bothered with aesthetics. If they see that one is more popular than the other then they will act.

They would even throw in a line about listening to the supporters for good measure.

If anyone fancies the away shirt Sports Direct are either doing a deal or have made a cock up and have it printed with Noble, Antonio, Zabaleta, Carroll, Lanzini and (doh!) Feghouli for £49.99 for men's and £39.99 for juniors.

They've already knocked the RRP down to that price on the blank shirts so seem to be giving the printing for nothing.

This years shirts (well certainly away one at least) definitely come up small! I always buy mediums and it's far too tight across the chest (interestingly more the chest than my beer belly...) so I'm returning mine to exchange for a large.
