Rugby's Sale Away





I would.  I'm not, but I would if I were 30 years younger. Old guys my age look pretty silly in stuff like this -- but if I were 25? I like to remember when I was 25 -- Hell, I'd  be a fool not to.  Order here.

For the man who can't decide?

I am a bit sad to see Rugby go. I liked the idea - if not the fits, construction and price-points. I did use this clearance sale to pick up a fun tartan dinner jacket and tuxedo shirt.

I always see hoodlums looking at Polo now so I've stopped buying clothing by Ralph Lauren. It's embarrassingly awkward to be browsing the same shelves as ghetto drug dealers.

Age of wearer is not a factor in how hideous this sweater looks....ruination of a perfectly good shawl collar cardigan.

Mr. the Trad, you may say my instincts are wrong... and so is that sweater.
Anon... If everyone is wearing Polo how do you know which ones are hoodlums?

Smitty- I'm not so sure -- Hard to wear this sweater while being indecisive.

Makaga- Yrs ago when Rugby was introduced, I defended it on Ask Andy. Hell, I even bought a Rugby cape. Just in case the need ever arose. It will be missed and some smart guy out there is gonna figure out how to take the Rugby 'Haberdasher' concept, mix it with adult classics sans logos and sell it direct on the internet for a 50% markup.

Anon- I can't say I ever saw a Wall St type in Rugby.

Well said...Old Timer.

Bro- Remember what I told you -- Always do the exact opposite of what you think you should do.

Makaga- Just opened your link. That's a spectacular dinner jkt.

Makaga said...

Thanks, Tintin! I'll be sure to wear it the next time I run into you and Yamato.

I concur..that is a smahing dinner jacket...an example fo shawl collar not going to waste as in the Rugby abomination.

Bro...You can tell 'cause the Polo jeans worn by suspected thug are riding below the gluteous..exposing underpants

That's interesting, I think I would have looked silly in stuff like this at 25.
