Rugby is one of the most popular sports in the world. But the fashion style that this sport brings for people around the world has left an incredible mark on history.
Across the United States, professional clubs and college stadiums are packed with jersey fans. They wore basketball and soccer jerseys, on their own accord, have shifted from the sports arena to the cultural one, worn outside the stadium primarily in streetwear and skate outfits. However, many experts could argue that the shirts themselves are not an actual garment. Basically, the basketball jersey is the tank top and the soccer jersey plus the T-shirt. There was one type of sports shirt, however, that resonated and opened its own path.
In the 1820s, students at a school called Rugby, Central England, began to play a game that involved running around with a ball. In 1845, the students there wrote down the “rules of the game at Rugby School”; before that, the game was called “Rugby style” and finally, simply “Rugby” (also known as “Rugby”). It is often said that rugby is a sport of hooligan played by the gentlemen. The uniforms of the sport participants in the early days clearly expressed this point: a white buttoned flannel shirt combined with matching trousers, small-cap, bow, and sometimes glasses with one-barrel.
White flannel shirts, however, don’t look very well on the pitch. The tail of the long shirt has become a hindrance, defenders are easy to grab the ends of the shirt and stop the opposing player, while his pants are easily torn. Flannel shirts were quickly replaced with collared sweaters, but those who have been in wool know that this is not the most comfortable and stretchable fabric. For the third renovation, rugby teams opt for thick cotton to sew into long-sleeved shirts.
