According to Nike: The new England home jersey is a pure and brilliant white with an engineered pinstripe in the fabric. White satin tape on the shoulders gives the jersey a distinctive shine.

“Two references really stood out during the design process for the home kit – that stunning all-white kit England wore in Mexico in 1970 and the idea of the armour of English Knights,” said Martin Lotti, Nike Football Global Creative Director.

“You can see subtle references to the armour in the pinstripe, which carries a hint of shine, and in the white satin tape on the shoulders. We wanted to add some small detail that echoed the glow of the armour worn by St. George,” added Lotti.

The famous three lions crest has a metallic weave to create another shimmering effect, most noticable when the crest catches the light.

Inside the back of the neck is a pennant tab with a graphic of silver pinstripes that together create a St. George’s cross.

The jersey has a modern V-neck collar, which is both functional and styled for sport.

The 1970 inspiration can be seen in the full kit. The new shorts are classic white with a satin white tape along each side to create the same distinctive shine as the shoulders of the shirt.

The fit of the shorts is slimmer and more tailored to the body, based on fit research and specifically cut to aid movement and comfort. The central back section of the shorts features Nike’s signature laser vents to aid in cooling and allow for moisture management. The new home socks are also white.

Nike has also collaborated with renowned English typographer Neville Brody to create a new font for the names and numbers on the back of this England jersey.

“It has been an extraordinary honour to design the fonts for the English jersey,” said Brody. “The core inspiration was to focus on the intersection between flair and workmanlike reliability. Small touches emphasise the idea of innovation, invention and surprise, built around a more geometric structure. The industrialised suggestion of a stencil was simultaneously based on a pinstripe motif, combining style with no-frills efficiency.”
