13&W Approved - Rugby's Thermal Rugbys
With the majority of Rugby's first holiday delivery up on its website I am excited to finally share with you two of my favorite styles from the line. Simple and effortlessly cool, these thermal rugbys are the exact sensibility that initially drew me to the brand. The term "Preppy with a twist" gets thrown around a lot but I've found that the usual result of that idea is a fake, bastardization of the prep aesthetic. With these, we took the most classic rugby body, details and trim and ran them with an unexpected fabric. That's it. No cheesy logos, no tacky tie stripes. Just classic style. The result, I think, is an overwhelming success. I've got them both and they will be layered into my rotation all through the winter.
