2011/12 kits leaked

West Ham United's home and away kits have been revealed by a keen-eyed supporter.

Both of the new replica kits - manufactured once again by Italian designer Macron - were set to be kept under wraps until Wednesday, their official release date.

However due to a cock-up by the developers working on the club's new online store, one enterprising KUMB.com member was able to unearth links to the new kits - shirts, socks and shorts - simply by correctly guessing the URLs.

The designs stick to the club's classic traditions and have already been warmly welcomed by KUMB members who managed to view the online store pages before they were removed, shortly after the leak.

The home shirt maintains the classic claret body/blue sleeve look and features a double claret band on the cuff with the word 'Hammers' embroidered at the back of the neck. The only real departure from tradition are two gold stripes, one atop each shoulder.

The away shirt is a warm welcome back to the sky blue kit with two claret bands made famous in the 1950s. Like the home shirt it features an embroidered 'Hammers' on the nape of the neck but with claret stripes on the shoulders replacing the gold of the home shirt.

''These shirts don't look anything like the official teaser picture released by the club. Another red herring from our glorious leaders?!''
