The rugby shirt is an underrated piece to have in the wardrobe, thanks to its overall comfort and easygoing presence. It can also handle anything you throw at it, from NFL Redzone binges to overly competitive Turkey Bowl showdowns, date nights to dinner parties, holiday lounging to holiday parties.
Unfortunately, choices are limited for those who like to keep things as minimal as possible. Regularly available options tend to lean into bright colors with elaborate striping and bold embroidered logos—making the search difficult if not impossible for something sleek and streamlined.
This is why we're so big on this option from Flint and Tinder, who went less-is-more with their first crack at the rugby shirt. And lucky for the savvy shoppers out there, it just went on sale right here.
The long-sleeve rugby is made of a thick, heavyweight 100% cotton jersey that breathes easy and delivers a super-soft handfeel. The deep charcoal coloring, meanwhile, is the perfect kind of stealthy, while the pieced-in stripe provides a subtle contrast without overdoing anything. High-quality fisheye buttons finish off the look.
"Dress it up with chinos, throw it on for a pickup game of football, or pack it when you're traveling light and need something that does a little of everything," the brand notes.
