Riffing on Cabourn’s military-led design expertise plus the designer’s Army Gym stores and loungewear collection, the new collection takes its lead from vintage British Army recruit PT gear and the Army Gymnastic Staff of the era. Reimagined for a contemporary consumer, the seven-piece collection joins the dots between retro training uniforms and casualised gymwear to deliver a range of styles which underlines Nigel Cabourn’s archive-informed design personality while ticking today’s trend boxes.
“My first Umbro collab collection was a reference to the brand’s British sporting heritage as well as its connection with the rugby world,” Nigel Cabourn commented. “But with this second capsule I wanted to give Umbro the complete Cabourn seal of approval with a set of styles inspired by the Army Gym design personality which is so close to my heart.”

Highlights from the second Umbro x Nigel Cabourn collection include a fresh interpretation of Umbro’s iconic popover Drill Top, reimagined as the POH Training Top in loopback marl-grey cotton jersey. Priced at £135, key details include a self-fabric patch chest pocket with a rubber closure button, a ribbed under-arm gusset, and ‘UMBRO NC’ rear print branding. As with all the tops, this style features a distinctive cotton herringbone neck tape.
Additional tops include a zip-through Tracktop in French navy cotton sateen. Priced at £150, the top features a ribbed and striped funnel neck, a two-way zip, ‘NC’ applique felt lettering, plus embroidered Umbro diamond logos on the chest and a dual branded globe motif on the back. Both the Training Top and Tracktop are available with matching logo-carrier pants priced at £135, and shorts options at £100.
The collection is underpinned by a selection of three short-sleeve polo shirts in dark navy, off-white, and washed army green. All options are crafted in a classic cotton Aertex fabric and feature a zip-to-collar, elasticated waist, an embroidered Umbro diamond logo on the chest, plus ‘UMBRO’ felt applique lettering across the back.
