England have unveiled their latest kit for the 2013/'14 season in a presentation in Leeds.

The home shirt retains the traditional white, although there is a touch of midnight blue on the detail of the collars.

It will be worn for the autumn internationals as well as next year's Six Nations.

Head coach Stuart Lancaster was present at the unveiling, along with centre Brad Barritt.

The kit was shown for the first time at a school as part of a wider project to encourage rugby in schools and to help fans feel connected with the national team.

Speaking at the official launch, Lancaster told the RFU:

Putting on an England shirt is a huge source of pride for the players and the white shirt is a critical part of England’s identity as well as our history and heritage.

We want everyone to feel part of this England side, to feel a sense of connection and pride in the team and to inspire more people to play and watch rugby.

The kit is already available to pre-order ahead of England's autumn programme.

England face Australia at Twickenham on November 2, with the British and Irish Lions having beaten the Wallabies on their summer tour.

The next week they face Argentina, fresh from going winless in the 2013 Rugby Championship.

And on November 16 their autumn culminates with a home Test against world champions New Zealand.
