West Ham United 12/13 Macron Home Football Shirt

West Ham United unveiled the Club's new Macron home kit for the 2012/13 Barclays Premier League season, which will be available here.

The new home strip showcases the traditional claret body with sky blue sleeves redesigned with a vintage style. The shirt features a stylish claret knitwear 'corean' neck collar with a sky blue insert, embellished by a stitched yellow cross recalling the symbolic Hammers logo.

A second embossed Hammers logo on the back of the shirt means nobody will be in any doubt who you support, while sky blue inserts on the flank define the profile of the shirt and shape its form. The sleeves combine the sky blue colour with a claret piping profile.

The shorts are the traditional white, complete with a stitched West Ham logo, while the socks are predominantly claret but highlighted by two sets of sky blue and white hoops.

Captain Kevin Nolan and Hammer of the Year Mark Noble joined Carlton Cole, James Tomkins and Matt Taylor as they become the first players to try on the new kit at a special photoshoot at the club's Chadwell Heath training ground.

All five enjoyed pulling on the new claret and blue shirt for the first time and are looking forward to running out in the kit when West Ham host Aston Villa in their opening Barclays Premier League fixture on Saturday 18 August.

"I think the shirt is smart," said Tomkins. "I always feel proud to wear our shirt and it is great when you look at our supporters and hundreds of them are wearing the shirts in the crowd, it is a great thing to see. I like it, it looks good, feels nice and I am looking forward to wearing it for the new season."

"It is always a nice feeling to wear a new kit for the first time," added Taylor. "The shirt feels good to wear, nice design - it will be exciting to wear it next season."

"The new kit looks great and I can't wait to play in it," said Cole. "I hope our supporters will like it and will be wearing the shirt with pride like we will next season."

In addition to the new home shirt, the 2012/13 Macron replica away shirt and trainingwear are already selling fast. The away shirt is 'Moore than a football kit', designed to be worn for comfort whether it is for leisure on a day out or wearing to cheer on the Hammers.

Very nice kit there, simple, crisp and typical west ham.

The socks complete the kit for me and looking forward to a great season ahead.

one year would like to see us break away from white shorts and go for claret. Claret and two light blue hoops for the top, claret
Shorts and claret socks. Nice!

Villa got bumped. At least the west ham kit looks fitted unlike villa which looks like a bin liner.


Villa get £15 million from Macron and £16 million from Genting. West Ham get USD 18 million (£11.25 million) from their deals combined.

Who got bumped then?

Interesting thread mate. WHUFC will get less as their kits are only available through the club outlet and not the stores. Probably all adds up in the end but I wish the kit was available through other sports shops.

The Hammers are back baby. the rest of you turd burglars who don't like the kit can SUCK IT

The Hammers are back, for one tedious season. Then they will be back, where they belong, in the Championship and Big Fat Sam will be sacked. Pie'n'mash, orse'n'cart. Macron=cheap. Do not tumble dry, items may shrink (like West Ham). Have getting your 22 points.

Based on your rude response all I can assume is that you were molested many times at football games

Can somebody explain to me if there is any meaning for this colour combination (maroon/claret+blue)? West Ham, Aston Villa, Burnley, Scunthorpe United, Tranmere Rovers(away).. etc. Just seems a bit too random colours to be used together by a couple of clubs.

Contrary to popular belief, Aston Villa were the first to wear claret and sky blue. According to Tony Matthews the claret and blue theme was a Scottish influence, combining the maroon of Hearts and the blue of Rangers, with the Scottish lion rampant included in the badge. Yet another theory from Wikipedia states that the club's proposed colours was chocolate and blue, and that chocolate colour, over time, was switched to claret.

West Ham United, then called Thames Ironworks, permanently adopted claret and blue for home colours in the summer of 1899. Irons right-half Charlie Dove received the kit from his father William Dove, who was a professional sprinter of national repute, as well as being involved with the coaching at Thames Ironworks. Dove Sr. had been at a fair in Birmingham, close to Villa Park, the home ground of Aston Villa and was challenged to a race against four Villa players, who wagered money that one of them would win.

Will Dove defeated them and, when they were unable to pay the bet, one of the Villa players who was responsible for washing the team's kit offered a complete side's 'uniforms' to Dove in payment. The Aston Villa player subsequently reported to his club that the kit was 'missing'.

Thames Ironworks, and later West Ham United, retained the claret yoke/blue sleeves design, but also continued to use their previously favoured colours for their away kits, and indeed, in recent years the club have committed to a dark blue-white-sky blue rotation for the away colours.

Burnley FC simply adopted the colours from then league champions Aston Villa in 1910.
