We seem to have a worst kits thread, but not a general thread for discussing strips/training gear whether good or bad (Unless I fail at searching?).

West Ham will have two new strips this year (New manufacturer!), the first of which I think is being unveiled on Thursday. Pre-season is underway so we have a look at the new training kit if nothing else at the moment:

I am currently sat in my hotel in Vegas enjoying an iced latte whilst wearing my, very lovely, Japan 2010 home shirt. Nice colour, comfy and keeps you cool.

Getting lots of weird looks though. Either it's ba to wear sports shirts in public or the Americans don't have a clue wear Japan is! :lol:

My fave Japan shirt was the one with the flea on the sleeves - 1998 was it?

They know Japan. They're currently planning on invading you I suspect. :D

:blush: The Adidas Store in Los Angeles. Tried to get one out in Tokyo but sizing meant that was a no-go.

$70 was alright and I've wanted one for ages. Wish I'd bought an away shirt too as it wasn't my money but didn't think about it at the time. :(

I got mine from Kitbag (http://www.kitbag.com/stores/kitbag/products/product_details.aspx?pid=63744). Seems they're selling the shirt for ?33.74 now too!

The missus told me that Middlesbrough are not having a season long shirt sponsor and instead are doing a monthly deal where a different sponsor will be on the shirt each month.

That's interesting. Surely that means the amount of income is going to fluctuate (i.e. Team high up the league = Coke sponsorship, team at the bottom = Shandy Bass) - I would have thought that a fixed amount to allow you to budget for would make the most sense.

Presumably they've got the sponsors all lined up already?

Also, even if not, their league position wouldn't affect it, it'd depend on whether they happened to have fixtures against ManU, Arsenal and Liverpool that month.

Talking of sponsors, Spurs have announced a new two year deal today with Autonomy Corporation. It's a deal for Premier League matches only, we're looking for a different sponsor for cup competitions and European matches.

Not too bad, although they have a predominately blue and grey logo yet they have to go and sneak in that one dot of red! ;)

The new kit is being officially launched on the 16th of July too.

Perhaps that's the way things are going then. Can't fault the clubs for trying to get as much as they can for their sponsorship deals.

Spurs Home Kit - Like it but would be better with all navy shorts

Spooky!

The other day, I read/heard that an Italian club side, either last season or the season before had a monthly sponsor deal where they, each month, had a different title of a film release as the sponsor logo.

Don't know the name of the club, but it would be interesting to see what the films they were displaying.

Having 'x' amount of 'different' shirts for one season would be quite cool if the logo's were of decent films. :)

Also!

I remember a few world cups back, Japan had a really smart top that, if I remember rightly, had flames on it, of some sort. I think it was on the body rather than the arms.

Does anyone know how I could find that out?

Soon as I saw the kit I was like 'Want'.

Atletico Madrid were sponsored by Colombia Tristar in 2003/04, with results such as:

Chelsea's kit has actually changed more than I thought it had:

http://www.soccerfanatic.com/SFCBlog/wp-content/gallery/chelsea-home-kit-20102011/chelsea-home-kit-2010-11-adidas-a.jpg

Red stripe is to symbolise/remember the Chelsea pensioners. They've changes from the paneling from the last year to 'bobbled sections'.

Not really a huge amount you can change on a single colour shirt...

Aston Villa's keeper kit is the same (http://www.footballshirtculture.com/images/aston-villa-10-11-nike-kits-i.jpg) so it must be a Nike thing. I've always liked Nike kits, they're usually simple and elegant, but that's just horrible!

My love for the West Ham brand of claret and blue is imprinted into my very being.

In other news, our kit sizes are utterly ridiculous. Going by the chest sizes I should be ordering either a medium or large BOYS shirt.

Outside of their marquee clients (Some of the England stuff, for example), Umbro are horribly lazy with their kits.

I quite like it as a shirt, but I certainly wouldn't pay £40 for a replica
