Superior quality with a timeless style

The Six Nations is as old as rugby itself, with 1871 seeing both the inaugural game between England and Scotland and the first unified set of rules being established in London. These classic rugby shirts are inspired by those glorified days of pre-professional rugby, fusing that traditional look with exceptional-quality materials for a superior shirt that’s perfect for everyday use. Manufactured in Portugal using a heavy duty slub cotton, they combine vintage dyes with a distressed wash to create a pre-worn look and feel straight out of the packaging.

    Quick guide - Use the following guidelines along with a fabric tape measure

    • Wear minimal or no clothing to get the most accurate measurement
    • The shirts have a semi-fitted cut to give a more tailored look but have been designed to be worn with other layers
    • If you prefer to wear a t-shirt underneath then we recommend you choose your normal size. If not, then consider a size below for a more custom fit

    How to measure: Place the tape around the fullest part of your chest, including your shoulder blades, then drop your arms to your sides to measure.
