It is understood that Nike will officially unveil the new Three Lions' shirts on St George's Day, April 23.
The likes of Wayne Rooney, Theo Walcott and Ashley Cole can look forward to wearing the new white home kit on May 29 at Wembley against the Republic of Ireland, with the away number to be debuted in Rio this summer.
England play Brazil in June as part of the FA's 150th anniversary celebrations, which plays a prominent part in the rumoured away design with a gold FA badge crest embroidered on the chest.
The minimalistic all-red jersey – pictured above – apparently has a polo collar with buttons to complete a smart look, that appears to be inspired by England's historic 1966 World Cup success.

Nike, however, refused to confirm whether the 'leaked' image is the genuine article but admitted all will be revealed soon.
'Nike creates different design options and samples at different stages in the kit design process,' a spokesperson told Sportsmail.
'We will unveil the actual designs later this year and until then we cannot comment on images of England kit designs that are circulating on the web.'
England will play in the white Umbro home kit for the last time in the forthcoming World Cup 2014 qualifiers against San Marino and Montenegro before switching to the Swoosh.
