The Umbro 'Icons Re-Issue' collection celebrates Umbro's long-standing football history, providing football kits for the England team ever since the World Cup was won on home soil back in 1966.

To commemorate its rich football history and stylish sportswear heritage, a collection of history-inspired sportswear was created. The four featured garments are a stitch-for-stitch recreation of four of the brand's most iconic pieces. The Umbro Icons Re-Issue collection pays homage to four classic silhouettes which signify Umbro’s reputation for creating smart football clothing.
 
Featured in the history-inspired sportswear collection are the the ’66 Anthem Jacket, worn by Sir Alf Ramsey (England manager who helped the team lift the country’s first World Cup); the Mexico ’70 Jersey, worn by the team when they played eventual winners Brazil, in what is regarded as one of the best World Cup tournaments ever; the Taped Track Jacket, a garment which signified a new movement in sportswear branding; and last but not least the Drill Top, a seminal piece of clothing that reigned supreme in England during the '90s.

These four history-inspired sportswear pieces, an exact recreation of the original, ooze history and are available from http://www.umbro.com. Stats for History-Inspired Sportswear Trending: Older & Chilly
