LAW CLUB 1871 RUGBY SHIRT
The vintage Law Club 1871 rugby shirt is made with a heavyweight slub cotton which gives the shirt a hard wearing yet soft and comfortable retro style finish. This vintage ‘old school’ shirt combines heritage colour dyes with a distressed wash to produce a nicely worn-in look and feel. The number 9 is sewn on to the back of the shirt. This classic Law Club 1871 rugby shirt is inspired by the founding members of the RFU.
