A Proper Rugby Shirt

Good rugby shirts are difficult to find in the U.S. and I was glad to see one being sold in the Engineered Garments FW10 collection. Not wanting to pay $160+ for one though, I waited a bit until they hit the sales this month and purchased the navy/grey version for a more reasonable amount. The fit is surprisingly trim (I went up a size) and I’m very happy with the overall quality of the shirt.

As for the manufacturer, the RN# number on one of tags points to it being made by Columbiaknit in Portland, Oregon – it sells many different styles of rugby shirts directly at affordable prices, however, I’m not sure how the fit compares to the Engineered Garments version.

A nice detail – there is an extra panel under the sleeve where it connects to the body, which helps in fit and movement. I think this is an underutilized feature that many sport shirts lack.

Barneys.com has one left in a small, but it might be worth calling or checking out your local store to see if they have any left in more sizes.

Fall Inspirations – Old School Rugby

Some vintage rugby finds from over a century ago (from Rugby Union Football and Football: The Rugby Union Game). Interestingly, many clubs back then had large emblems on their shirts covering the heart – from a historical perspective, it makes those Ralph Lauren shirts with the large pony logos somewhat less garish.

Rugby’s Scout Deck Jacket

Rugby has a great looking yellow parka up for spring called the scout deck jacket. It’s very similar in design to Barbour’s Kagoule jacket, but at half the price.
