Once the regalia of rugby pitches in the 1800s, rugby shirts transcended the sporting world and entered mainstream fashion in the 1950s. Regarded as a comfortable workhorse garment with a collar that serves as a nod to tradition, the rugby shirt epitomizes what we like to call “tailored performance.” Our spin on this classic marries the silhouette with a waffled-texture Merino wool blend for increased temperature regulation, wicking and odor-fighting properties.
The Fells Rugby is finished with a hidden two-button placket and stand collar: a nod to the traditional rugby silhouette.
Featuring a gridded texture, the fabric naturally traps and releases body heat to regulate temperature

Waffles Before, During
Runners believe in establishing a strong base. That emphasis on building from the inside out carries over to our layering strategy: It all starts with a warm and wicking foundation. The waffle pattern on this Merino wool layer traps air against the skin to increase insulation, while also allowing heat to escape as the effort increases. We brought this refreshed classic fabric to the new Fells Rugby for increased versatility, comfort, and style.
Merino is Magic
If you’re still not familiar with the performance benefits of Merino wool, be prepared for a revelation. Soft and not at all scratchy, Merino wicks moisture and regulates temperature just like animal hair (because it sort of is). It’s almost completely impervious to odor, even if you never choose to wash it. And unlike synthetic wicking materials, Merino stays warm even when it’s wet.
From the Fells
Our Fells pieces are inspired by cross country’s wet and wild cousin: fell running. Facing challenging courses and unpredictable British weather, fell runners have long relied on wool clothing to keep them warm and protected in tough conditions.
