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.

Richard Keogh is willing to play with a broken hand as the Republic of Ireland are set to begin their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign.
The Derby County defender broke a bone in his right hand on Wednesday during their Championship stalemate against Stoke City.
The 32-year-old chose not to have surgery as that would have ruled him out for the matches against Gibraltar and Georgia.
Keogh said: “I went for the X-ray and at first they were talking about surgery.
“This was before I spoke to the hand surgeon and I didn’t particularly want to do that, I wanted to get his opinion first before I did anything.

“When I spoke to him, I just said, ‘Listen, if there’s a chance of me playing, I just want to carry on playing if that’s at all possible. I don’t want to have surgery’. I’d rather just take the risk, I suppose, and just crack on.
“He saw the X-ray and said, ‘I think we can do that’. If it hadn’t been the middle of my finger where it’s protected by the other two, I think I might have had to have surgery and been out for bit.
“But fingers crossed, with this now, I can just resume training, playing and carry on, so it worked out well in the end.”

He said: “I had a good conversation with him [the hand surgeon], and he said he’s seen this injury a few times and people have played with it.”
Championship side Derby County won 5-3 on penalties to knock Premier League Southampton out of the FA Cup.
Redmond was the only player to miss in the shootout, firing high and wide to give Derby the advantage at St Mary’s after a thrilling 2-2 draw.
It was Rams skipper Richard Keogh who scored the winning penalty to send Lampard’s side through to a fourth round clash with Accrington Stanley.
Derby thought they had taken the lead in the 38th minute as Craig Bryson slotted in after Martyn Waghorn’s lay-off.
Southampton scored two goals in as many minutes to seize control of the tie.
The hosts took the lead in the 67th minute through Stuart Armstrong’s header, the Scotland international nodding in from close range after Shane Long’s header was blocked on the line by Scott Malone.
And Nathan Redmond was played through just a minute later and calmly lifted the ball over keeper Kelle Roos to score Southampton’s second.
But the goal was checked by the VAR and Waghorn was adjudged to have been just offside as the ball was played into him and the goal was ruled out.
But Derby snatched a goal back just six minutes later. Harry Wilson whipped a free-kick in and, despite Waghorn’s attempt to get a head on the ball, it appeared to evade everyone and nestled in the far corner.
The goal was once again checked by the VAR, but was allowed to stand.

And the comeback was complete with fewer than ten minutes remaining when Wilson turned provider as his cross found Waghorn unmarked in the box to head home.
Both teams had chances to win it late on – Tom Lawrence heading over from close range for Derby and Elyounoussi going close for Southampton.
Redmond wasted a golden opportunity to restore Saints’ lead in the 111th minute, firing straight at Roos after being slipped in by Oriol Romeu, before his off-target spot-kick in the shoot-out proved decisive.
