BELSIZE PARK 1871 RUGBY SHIRT
The vintage Belsize Park 1871 rugby shirt is made with a heavyweight slub cotton. This gives the shirt a hard-wearing yet soft and comfortable retro finish.
This vintage ‘old school’ shirt combines heritage colour dyes with a distressed wash to produce a nicely worn-in look and feel.
The letter ‘B’ is sewn onto a square patch on the back of the shirt in recognition that letters, as well as numbers, were used in the past.
This classic Belsize Park 1871 rugby shirt is inspired by the founding members of the RFU.
All our vintage rugby shirts come packaged in a stylish Black&Blue1871 cotton drawstring bag.
