new england away shirt 2010-2012

Tuesday, February 9th, 2010

A great video to promote the new Umbro England away shirt. The add features Kasabian. Don’t be fooled by the simple design, the shirt is a study of human movement and an exploration of performance fabric technology inspired by English pride, courage and strength. More about the shirt here.

Umbro understands that football fans (and style minded people) no longer accept poor replica’s made in sweatshops far away. By the way Umbro approached the design process the shirt is much more than a way to show your support during the next World Cup.
