Community Clothing founder Patrick Grant is confident you won’t find one anywhere near this good, even at twice the price.

When he set about developing a rugby shirt, Community Clothing founder Patrick Grant wanted them to be as good as the shirts he wore when he played the game in the 1980’s and early 1990’s. Every Community Clothing rugby shirt is individually hand cut and sewn in Derbyshire by a small team of exceptionally skilled makers who make rugby shirts for some of the best-known premium brands.

Community Clothing use only the best quality jersey, knitted in Rugby by a small, family run knitting mill that has been doing nothing but knit jersey for over 30 years, and finished in Leicester in a specialist cotton finishing mill.

Community Clothing only use the very best materials from trusted suppliers, and work with the best factories, because consistency is the route to genuine quality. This fantastic quality pure cotton rugby shirt is comfortable, durable, and thanks to Community Clothing’s unique business model its great value too.

Making rugby shirts this good is expensive, and at most other brands you’ll have to choose; a shirt that’s good, or a shirt that’s affordable. And that’s because it’s standard practice for clothing brands to mark up their manufacturing costs by five times or more. So only around 20% of the price you pay for an item goes on making it. That’s because other brands spend huge amounts of money on things like expensive marketing campaigns, advertising, celebrity endorsements, and all sorts of other things that have nothing to do with making good clothes. Community Clothing don’t do any of that and prefer to let the quality of the product speak for itself, with mark-ups about a third of most other brands.

The shirts are traditionally cut, with a looser more relaxed fit and because of their traditional square cut, they fit just as well on women as they do on men. A Community Clothing rugby shirt costs just £59 and are available in sizes from XS to 4XL.
