Umbro have done the unthinkable with most of their football shirt designs, and made wearing their on-pitch creations cool to wear in an off-pitch environment.
And with their new England Away Shirt Collection, Umbro have ramped the cool factor up to the power of 10!
The centrepiece of the new' England Away Shirt Collection is – unsurprisingly – the new England Away shirt, with a twist.
Rather than the Regatta Blue collar that we’ve seen used so far, this limited version of the' England Away Shirt features a subtle, yet at the same time eye-catching use of the Peter Saville’s ‘Modern England’ fabric around the neckline.
Combined with turning the badge and solitary World Cup star into the same deep navy of the rest of the England Away Shirt lets the collar really ‘pop’ against the England Cap-inspired hue of the rest of the shirt.
Also part of the' new' England Away Shirt Collection are a selection of ‘tonal’ variations of the new change strip.
These minimalist interpretations of the 2011-13 Away kit see the blue exchanged for other classic English colours, the Regatta Blue of the Collar, sleek Galaxy Blue and – of course – white.
Perfect to wear if you’re looking to keep your footy-fashion low-key.
The final, and indeed one of the most show-stopping pieces of the' new' England Away Shirt Collection is the new Umbro Anthem Jacket.
Subtly utilizing the ‘Modern England’ print once again, the new Anthem jacket is the darkest of dark navy making the tessellating St. Georges Cross a very understated way to show your love for the team.
The only piece of the' new' England Away Shirt Collection that will see any on-pitch action, the Limited Edition Anthem jacket will be worn in Montenegro on Friday as the players take the pitch, to mark the final qualifying game in the Three Lion’s final Euro 2012 qualifying game.
All the England Shirts in the' new' England Away Shirt Collection will retail for £69.99, whilst the limited edition England Anthem Jacket will set you back a cool £99.99.
