An indepth look at the West Ham United 1983-85 Home Kit.
West Ham United's early-mid 80s adidas era is packed with bona fide classics. This home strip was one of the most interesting of the lot. It retained the familiar sky blue sleeves but introduced a multi-trimmed (so very early 80s!) white v-neck and cuffs and a sky blue panel across the chest, trimmed with white piping. With sponsorship beginning to feature more and more on football jerseys in the UK (and with TV rules on sponsors' logos lifted) this provided the perfect space to highlight the brand of a commercial partner.
