CLAPHAM ROVERS 1871 RUGBY SHIRT
The Clapham Rovers 1871 rugby shirt is made with a heavyweight slub cotton which gives the shirt a hard wearing yet soft and comfortable finish.
This heritage ‘old school’ shirt combines vintage colour dyes with a distressed wash to produce a nicely worn-in look and feel.
The letter ‘H’ is sewn on to a square patch on the back of the shirt in recognition that letters, as well as numbers, were used in the past.
Heavy duty slub cotton to give it a pre-worn feel
Embroidered Clapham Rovers logo
Embroidered 1871 detailing on the back of the neck
Letter ‘H’ patch sewn on the back of the shirt
Two rubber button placket
Made in Portugal

All our rugby shirts are folded with tissue paper and come with a swing tag in a Black&Blue 1871 cotton drawstring bag.
As we hate too much packaging waste, the drawstring bag comes in useful as a laundry bag when travelling or simply to store your plastic bags in the car ready to use when shopping.
Postage for the shirts is determined at the checkout page.
