A rugby shirt used to only be worn as a team jersey or uniform by ruby players. However, that is no longer the case. Modern rugby shirts can be seen being worn by everyone, from men and women to toddlers and infants.
The shirt features a button top opening, usually with two or three buttons and looks very much like a polo shirt. The main feature that sets these shirts apart from others is the broad horizontal stripes. These stripes used to represent a particular team’s colors, but today’s modern rugby shirts are designed to represent a youthful and exciting style.
These shirts are now considered to be an updated and sporty take on team wear. While the collar still presents a classic look, the shirt can be worn in just about any situation.
Ralph Lauren, American Rag, Tommy Hilfiger and other designers create shirts that are comfortable and stylish. Choose from long-sleeve or short-sleeve versions to create the best look for the event. Top off a pair of jeans with a solid colored shirt for a day at the park with the kids, or running errands. Wear one of these shirts with a pair of khaki shorts and hit the golf course for day out with friends.
Women can wear this rugby look with shirts from Tommy Girl and It’s Our Time. While not a true rugby style shirt, these shirts have the same stripe detailing with a definite feminine twist. These tops can be worn over a pair of jeans or leggings for a completely individual look. Add some jewelry and you can feel ready to go out on the town for a casual dinner or just getting together with friends.
