If there's one thing we know about, it's the work that goes into crafting a quality men's rugby shirt. Inspired by our founders' time on the pitch, we've been at the forefront of effortless athleisure wear, celebrating the golden era of rugby with a combination of traditional shirt details, including colour-blocking, rubber buttons and twill collars. With countless styling possibilities, we've rounded up the best polos and rugby shirts for men to get you ready for the season ahead.

Show your support

Packed with traditional rugby shirt features, our Supporters range was created for you to show your home pride in style. Including a woven twill collar and rubberised buttons to the placket, our Supporters Rugby Shirt features a monochrome Union Jack cut and sew design to the upper body to leave no doubts about who you're cheering on this season.

Heritage inspired

We've been making rugby shirts since they were used for playing, and our heritage styles stay true to those originals. In soft and breathable pure cotton, our Embroidered Polo Shirt is finished in all-over marl with a neat anti-curl collar. Cotton Traders embossed buttons are a nod to our legacy, with all-important rugby heritage embroidery on the chest demonstrating our love for the game.

Classic details

Embodying the early twentieth-century aesthetic of classic rugby shirt details, the England Classic Rugby Shirt is crafted from the purest cotton fabric, which is elevated with iconic England Rose embroidery and timeless finishing touches: think twill collar, grosgrain trims and authentic rugby colours.

Go for bold

Since its inception, the humble rugby shirt has regularly surfaced in mainstream sartorial moments – remember the heavy colour-blocking of the late '90s preppy trend? – enjoying bolder colours and more prominent stripes. Our Embroidered Stripe Rugby Shirt emulates this perfectly and features our exclusive Bulldog mascot embroidery for an added element of fun.
