I had the real privilege to be invited up to Umbro’s design studio in Manchester yesterday as part of a small group for a special presentation of the new England away kit by the designers themselves.
It was a wonderful evening as you can imagine and I will be posting a full write up of the event when the new kit is unveiled on the 3rd March.
I chatted at length to designers Aitor Throup and David Blanch (who is Umbro’s head kit designer) about the current England kits and the way Umbro are approaching kit design now. They were very open and answered all questions honestly which was fascinating. We also had the chance to rummage through the Umbro shirts archive!
