According to a release from WHUFC: West Ham United’s new third strip is directly inspired by the first-ever kit worn by the Irons, in the 1900/01 Southern League season.

On September 1 1900, in the club’s first home game wearing that strip, the Hammers ran out 7-0 winners over Gravesend.

The sky-blue shirt is also embroidered with the first known crest ever to ever appear on a West Ham United jersey, from the famous first Wembley FA Cup final of 1923.

The date ‘05.07.1900’ has also subtly been stamped across the back of the neck as a reminder of the club’s roots and the inspiration for this kit.

The simple design of the shirt is completed with a buttoned collar and a cuffed sleeve, finishing off an elegant and refined new addition to the West Ham United locker.

The top is accompanied by white shorts, again sporting the 1923 cross irons crest, and black socks in a complete tribute to the first West Ham United team.
