2010 February 1

Two things are making the rugby shirt this summer’s most exciting casual clothing item:

1.    Clint Eastwood’s film Invictus, showing South Africa’s World Cup quest has won critical acclaim; it’s the ‘Best Movie for Grownups’ according to AARP The Magazine catering for the 50+ audience in the USA, as well as being popular with rugby players themselves. Starring Morgan Freeman as Nelson Mandela, the film is likely to be one of the most popular historical dramas of the year.

2.    The Six Nations Rugby, ahead of the 2011 World Cup, promises to be a more equal, and therefore more exciting, European tournament than for many recent years. And for England fans, Jonny Wilkinson is back in the frame for both the Six Nations and the World Cup.

So how should you wear your rugby shirt to be in with the latest fashion?

•    This item of sportswear is likely to be more popular in a solid colour than in the traditional hoops of colour in 2010.
•    Never, ever, tuck it in.
•    While rugby shirts have been worn a lot with jeans in the past, this year – because of the links to the film, Invictus – they will be most fashionable worn with sports shorts especially white ones.
