For those of us progressive and non racist countries (as opposed to brexiteers :wink: ), that is a price difference of €21 :shock: :shock:

So, the away kit is the white top with the red slashes across it. Was hoping they'd go yellow like the warm up kit. Like the travel wear line of clothes launched alongside the away kit. Never heard it called travel wear before, whatever next "going to the shops" wear line, coming with a free mask?

Three beautiful kits last year to some meh looking ones this year.

What's that away shirt about? Is it supposed to represent our usual mid-season capitulation? :roll:

Bollocks to it! :lol:

So word is that the new away kit is a tip of the hat to the old marble halls of Highbury :lol: There is obviously some new blood in the design dept at Adidas as to pull that little gem of an explanation out of the hat is almost...almost genius :lol:

Passed by the Adidas shop whilst in town to check out the new away top. In reality, its fucking horrendous. It sure as hell does not have a marble effect. The style is loose around the arm and feels more like a baseball shirt than a soccer (sorry football) shirt.
I cannot stand the white badge. The design is horrific. I did not think of the hallowed Highbury marble halls when I looked at it, but 10050 Cielo Drive, Beverley Hills did come to mind, and it looked like the top Nicole Simpson wore on that fateful night.
The only way I could like this top is if we win every match we play wearing it, and we lift all four trophies that we are contesting this coming season.It is hideous Adidas and they person who designed it needs sacking.

Oddly the only part of it I like is the white crest outlined in black. I've never liked our full cartoon crest with the half red half West ham colour but the simple one-colour outline of it in gold or black or blue or red they often use on training tops looks better. Still wish we had the VCC crest or just the plain 1970s cannon tbh.

Same here mate. I agree with everything Nos said about the shirt except the part you mentioned which I think looks pretty good. Maybe it's because it reminds me of this? 8)

While I've seen a lot worse, there is barely a tit between them. In fact you could combine all 10 tits from those 5 girls and it would still not make a handful 8)
