The sketch also suggests the 2016/2017 away West Ham away shirt will be on a white base with claret collar and an Umbro diamond Chevron pattern. The Betway sponsor logo will be black. Away shorts will be light blue with Claret accents. Claret socks with two claret hoops.
However, before anyone gets too excited the sketch designer admitted to Claret and Hugh this evening that it is more of an educated guess based on his knowledge of Umbro than a real leak. He explained this year’s theme for Umbro was location saying they are are basing the kits on stadium designs this coming season. Everton’s kit is based on the steel structure above the main stand and he predicts the West Ham kit will closely mimic the Olympic stadium structural design. The diamond/triangle patterned from the steel beams and flood lights will be incorporated.
One supporter who contacted Claret and Hugh but asked to remain anonymous “I have seen the actual designs, they are similar but that’s not it. They will be out soon” adding “Sorry I would be shot if I say anymore.”
