Description

The vintage Wimbledon Hornets 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 letter ‘K’ 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.

This classic Wimbledon Hornets 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.

    I love this shirt and wear it all the time. Highest quality, feels great, looks great. Much better than anything else out there. Ordering another bespoke shirt.

  2. Nick

    Bought 4 espresso cups. They are proper and I genuinely prefer drinking out of them… Perfect after lunch before switching on the rugby!
