1106_Rugby_HED

For all the love that athletic-inspired menswear is getting these days, the venerable rugby has been largely overlooked.

Which is a shame, as it’s the sort of mid-weight long-sleeved layer that can easily slip under a jean or waxed-canvas jacket or even—under the right circumstances—wouldn’t look out of place under a sport coat. Usually marked by a contrasting collar and a few bold stripes, it’s preppy in the original sense of the term. And whether or not you’ll ever see the inside of a scrum, picking up one (or all eight) of the following specimens would be a strong move.

Herewith, the eight rugby shirts to consider this season…
