There doesn’t seem to be much of a reason behind this collaboration between AC/DC and Umbro, but who needs one when the final products look like this.
According to the Umbro press release, the inspiration is an AC/DC show at the Glasgow Apollo on April 30, 1978. This was shortly before Scotland’s appearance at the 1978 World Cup in Argentina, and the band performed their encore wearing the Scotland ’78 jersey.
The main piece of this capsule collection is the jersey ($50), which features the iconic diamond taping on the shoulders and sleeves, AC/DC’s High Voltage logo and a screen-printed ’78’ on the back.
There are nine other pieces in the collection, including a track top, track bottoms, hoodie, scarf and beanie.
