West Brom To Ditch Stripes For New Adidas Home Kit

Wets Brom are set to become the latest club to part with tradition after it emerged they will ditch their traditional blue and white strips for their new home shirt.

Kit suppliers Adidas have instead designed a "pinstripe" look for Pepe Mel's side in the 2014-15 season, according to the Express and Star.

The Baggies' stripes have been ever-present since the Second World War, with the exception of two early 90s efforts from The Albion Collection and Pelada, when the club was sponsored by Sandwell.

Two other top-flight sides have made controversial kit changes in recent seasons.

Southampton, renowned for their red and white stripes, switched to an all-red ensemble for the 2012-13 season. Adidas began their partnership with the Saints this campaign.

And, most infamously, Vincent Tan changed Cardiff's home colour from blue to red, believing it would expand the club's appeal in "international markets". Cardiff will almost certainly be relegated back to the Championship this month.
