The kit is said to be a homage to London tailoring of Savile Row to Stamford Brige, while blending that with athletic innovation.
"Inspired by west London’s long association with master tailors and their exquisite craftsmanship, the Blues’ new home jersey ventures into the realm of statement shirting. A luscious, textured, modern classic, wholly befitting the capital’s most stylish club," wrote the club on its website.
Up next for the Blues is a short visit to London rivals West Ham United this evening.
