To celebrate 88 years of style in sportswear, Umbro release a capsule collection that pays homage to its unique football tailoring heritage and brand co-founder Harold Humphreys, entitled Icons Re-issue. Featuring some of their most iconic silhouettes from 1966 & '70 World Cup finals, each piece in the collection showcases Umbro's reputation for craftsmanship in the design & manufacture of smart football garments.Standout pieces in the collection are the ‘66 Anthem Jacket & the Mexico '70 Jersey:
Forever associated with England’s finest victory and worn by one of England’s all-time greats - Sir Alf Ramsey - the '66 Anthem Jacket features a 100% stonewash cotton twill fabric and all the unique details remain; red, white and blue rib stripes on the hem, cuff and collar as well as the embroidered Three Lions crest which sits on the chest. On the back is ‘England’ appliqué lettering applied with accurate zigzag stitching.
The Mexico ‘70 Jersey made its debut in what is widely regarded as the greatest ever World Cup Finals and the first to be broadcast in colour. Designed to allow players to play in extreme heat, the jersey took its place in football history when England took on Brazil in the quarter finals in Guadalajara. With a classic crew neck collar crafted from the same fabric as the original, the Mexico ’70 Jersey is 100% cotton mesh, immaculately reproduced to reflect the original and comes in a selection of four colours.Limited in numbers, the Umbro Icons Re-issue collection will only be available from our online store from tomorrow (Thursday 14th June).
