Rugby Ralph Lauren currently have some hidden gems in this season’s outerwear, including a varsity and down parka jacket.
Partial to a bit of Ralph, I was not surprised to find some quality items in the Covent Garden Rugby store. This season they’ve taken the Ivy League trend to a new level, applying letterman trademarks over almost every item, from rugby shorts to cardigans and continued onto outerwear.
The one item that stands out is their almost perfect wool varsity jacket. The colourway of navy with a very off white contrast sleeve works too well. The use of patches or over-use of patches also adds to the jackets appeal, with rugby ball patches and a giant R on the chest, finished off with sleeve patches, this jacket is sure to be a head turner. The quality of this jacket is very high of course, as expected with Rugby Ralph Lauren items, and is reflected in the price, coming in at a heavy £399. However, this is an investment purchase and more than a casual one, with numbers of these jackets being very limited.
Also worth a mention is their offering of down jackets. Clean, simple and decent quality, these down jackets are a staple of the Winter wardrobe and for those that prefer a more fitted collegiate look, look no further than one of these for this Winter.
Head into the Rugby Ralph Lauren store in Covent Garden to check them out or visit their website.
