For some, the zebra pattern on the arms was too much, despite the excellent modelling by Richard Keogh
Derby County have released their new home kit for the 2019/20 season.
And it is fair to say Umbro’s design for the Rams has divided supporters due to the bold patterns featured on the arms.
Inspired by the kit from the promotion-winning season of 1995/96, the kit has managed to reinvent a new intricate graphic that also showcases the iconic stanchions that adorn the skyline of Pride Park.
The unique design feature is placed on the sleeve to offer a different focal point of the home shirt, which also features the wording “EST 1884” in the club’s personal Baseball Ground typeface wording on the back of the neck.
Jonathan McCourt, Umbro’s UK Marketing Manager, said: “We’re really excited about Derby County’s new home kit.
With its 1990’s graphical feel, and referencing the 1995/96 season shirt which the fans will know so well, we hope that the new strip will be one the supporters can identify with given its roots whilst also creating new and lasting memories on and off the pitch.”
Featuring the unique acting talents of skipper Richard Keogh, Derby will be hoping this kit can inspire them to finally get out of the Championship.
