The reference photographs for this period are Wakefield's portraits for the 1897-98 season. Brentford had adopted a wide dark stripe and a thinner light stripe on their shirts, and the club colours at the time remained claret and light blue. The collar is dark with a light trim and the layout of the main fabric differs slightly in the photographs.
All bar two players are wearing dark shorts, illustrated as navy in these depictions, and as there are no socks evident navy socks have been added for illustrative purposes
