History of the Rugby Shirt
The history of the rugby shirt extends all the way back to 1823 when rugby was created, and the first game was played. It became evidently clear to the opposing teams and the audience watching them that they needed a defined uniform for the game that helped identify which team was which, and to give the game a more unified feeling. The first rugby shirt was crafted out of pure cotton and featured a bowtie. Although this created unity in the game, it did not solve the pressing issue of not being able to identify which team was which. Plus, the original rugby shirt was prone to wear and tear after a few matches. This began the process of creating a new and improved rugby shirt. The newer version is what we commonly see today: bolder colours, team emblems, a heavier cotton weaving that improve durability, and a new body-hugging fit.
Although the new shirt designed was quickly popularised amongst rugby players, many fans took notice of the design and wanted to wear something similar in their daily lives – which prompted the creation of the crew rugby shirt, also simply known as the rugby shirt. This design featured longer sleeves, a downward facing collar with a V-shaped neckline, and often, a unique design was placed on the shirt. The rugby shirt grew in popularity amongst the public as more and more men and women begun to buy and wear the shirt as a fashion staple.
Rugby Shirt Features
As previously mentioned the rugby shirt has two main features: the downward facing collar with a v-neckline, and the long sleeves. However, there are other features of this shirt as well such as the unique designs. The collar adds a stylish touch to the shirt and is a reference back to the original rugby shirts as well. The longer sleeves allow for the shirt to be worn during the cooler temperatures while not composing any of the shoulder and arm movement. Lastly, this feature is often overlooked, but it's undeniable to say that the unique designs that can be found on the rugby shirts just adds to the general appeal of owning a shirt of this kind.
The main materials used in the production of the rugby shirt is a high-quality blend of cotton and polyester. The cotton in this shirt allows for the designs to be vibrant while not ruining the materials. Furthermore, the cotton is responsible for the durability that the shirt has along with the soft wand warm, comfortable feeling it provides. The polyester in this shirt reinforces the durability while also giving the shirt a light form of water resistance.
