Rugby shirts have been around for a long time. The first known rugby match was played in England in 1823, when a player decided to pick up the ball with his hands. This birthed the widely popular sport, and rugby shirts (worn as team jerseys) began to arise in the mid-1800s thanks to their rugged durability.
Withernot has tapped into the rich history of rugby by releasing this vintage-inspired collection of rugby shirts. Each shirt is a fresh interpretation of the game’s best garments, using vintage color palettes and retro stripes to create a not-so-average jersey shirt.
Entire Collection of Withernot Rugby Shirts
Each rugby shirt is cut in the same traditional silhouette and woven out of heavyweight 10oz cotton using a 12-gauge knit. It’s safe to say these shirts aren’t going down anytime soon. They’re actually capable of handling a game of rugby.
Withernot outfits each shirt with rubber buttons and a timeless white collar made from cotton twill. They also add double-stitched reinforcements and include ribbed cuffs for a snug fit on the wrists.
