Rugby on sale: 20% off

If you’ve been on the fence about getting some of Rugby’s fall clothing, then now might not be such a bad time to consider purchasing because they’re offering 20% off all regular-priced merchandise with code FALLRUGBY11.

(Please don’t ask me about how their stuff fits, as I haven’t had hands-on with any of their items. I just thought I’d pass along the coupon code.)

Some interesting items that caught my eye:

Shetland sweater with elbow patches, $78.40:

Elbow patched shaggy sweaters for under $100 doesn’t seem like a bad deal and dieworkwear talked about these a while back.

ADDING: williamstelmach said:

Fit is spot on with sweaters. I bought the Shawl Collar shetland last winter in XS and it fits like an XS should - form fitting but not second skin. Consider that most things with patches are dry clean only though.

Thanks for the sizing information.

Make-your-own shawl-collared cardigan, $118.40:

I dare you to get it customized to say “menswear” at the bottom.

Vintage chino university pant, $55.60:

It’s worth knowing that cbenjamin's praised the fit of these chinos.

ADDING: ajamison replied: 

I loved my University chinos while they lasted…the crotch blew out after about 6 months or so. Seems like others have had that problem as well on dappered.com - see comments on the Rugby sale post.

Uh, so, buyer beware then! Maybe they’ve improved the quality since then? Thanks for the info.

ADDING: Wow, seems like these chinos aren’t such a great deal after all, as m0ym0y chimes in:

Rugby stuff fits slim / trim and yes the chinos are definitely on point in terms of a non skinny leg and a slight taper..but they do come broken in if that’s your thing, the crotch will blow out if that’s your only pair

I’m not sure I’d want to roll the dice on these.

  1. dieworkwear said: I’ve never had crotches blown out on anything - Rugby, raw jeans, Mabitex - but I don’t wear them that hard. I also don’t size down like crazy. Co-sign on vintage university chinos. Great for the price.

  3. elijahlain said: Still, in regards to the university chino, I don’t think you’re going to find anything comparable in terms of fit and quality at that price point. We’d all love to have Epaulet trousers.. But some of us have a budget to consider.
