Our first collection of tees has been a long time in the making. Over the years, we've made a ton of rugby tees for various clubs around the world. Hey, we played rugby and we made tshirts - it was only a matter of time we decided to focus on making a branded line of rugby tees.
After a trip to Las Vegas for the IRB Sevens series earlier this month, it was evident the market was in need for a lifestyle rugby brand. The sport is growing fast and the tens of thousands of rugby players, supporters, and enthusiasts in Sam Boyd Stadium appeared to be missing something. I saw the likes of Canterbury jerseys on people's backs with the addition club tees, "Give blood, play rugby" tees, and the Serevi brand making a strong appearance. But the void of a lifestyle brand was clear as day.
So, we got back from Las Vegas and decided it was time to get serious about making rugby tees. Here are a few that are just about ready to hit the press. This is a new Rugby Period.
