Those canny devils over at Umbro have just launched their ‘Icons Reissue’ collection, which sees them reproducing a small gaggle of premium stitch-for-stitch replicas of some of the brand’s most classic designs from yesteryear.

You’ll be glad to know that Pies have been able to nab a few photos of the new range from the folk over at Umbro, which contains but four vintage items – starting with Sir Alf Ramsey’s iconic England 1966 World Cup Anthem Jacket…

Icons Reissue Drill Top – just like your old Sunday League manager used to wear

Icons Reissue Track Top – featuring Umbro’s classic ‘diamond strip’ down the arms

England 1970 Mexico World Cup Jersey – one of the first football shirts ever to be made of Airtex (little holes for ventilation) fabric and a true icon of the England back catalogue

Gorgeous, one and all. I’m seriously considering splurging on the ’70 World Cup shirt – a true, timeless beauty.

The retro-tastic ‘Icons Reissue’ collection was launched today and all the items above are available over at Umbro.com

    I’ve bought nearly the same red track top last year for 10£. Only difference is the badge, which is slightly different..so it is remake not only of 60’s but 2011 aswell

    i bought the red shirt from 1970 not so long ago! (I wanted the 1966 shirt to wear during the World Cup, but I was going on a summer holiday so wanted short sleeves – so I cheated) and it’s a great shirt, definitely buy it!!
