    Just looks bad to tuck in anything thick. Ditto the sweater - even a relatively lightweight one. Next someone will argue for tucking in a sportcoat. Cheesh![​IMG]

    Much up to 60% off, with some of their better things - e.g. hats, non-iron shirts, the aforementioned rugby shirts, duffel coats, certain slacks, etc. 50% off. I noted as late as this a.m. BB's website still had only the sale which began 12/26 but they should be changing this very soon (as long as they mention it doesn't begin 'til Tuesday).
    A young lady at one of our BB's had told me their "biggest sale" begins the day after xmas but she was wrong - Tuesday's is larger (although, obviously, some of the items one wants might be gone by then).

    I nice slim fit t-shirt under it. Rugby shirts look great year round.

    I'm with you on the sweater but not the rugby. Rugbys looks good tucked in with jeans and nice shoes, or untucked with jeans or chinos with say boatshoes. I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree on this point. [​IMG]

    In the 80's, very a polo under a rugby was common...

    Hmm depends, my personal taste is if you wear a rugby with a white collar shirt underneath the rugby should be a solid color. WHen im wearing a rugby with rugby stripes, i usually wear a tshirt matching the darkest color stripe.

    Yes, I could see that if you have color t-shirts and of a color very close. I asked one of my main salesmen at BB today what to wear underneath and his immediate response was a knit polo. The two collars doesn't bother him too much, apparently, and then, again, it barely shows.
    BTW, how about over a rugby? Sweater? Maybe a cardigan but what about a pullover? Under a sportcoat, such as a blazer?[​IMG]

    I love my rugbies and usually wear either an OCBD or a polo shirt underneath them.

    A collared shirt under a rugby shirt seems utterly ridiculous to me. I've never seen it. Perhaps it's some weird regional styling? A polo shirt gets a pass from me, but there's a reason most people consider the 80s the high point of kitsch.

    No Lafont I'm still not with you on this. A rugby shirt is a rugby shirt, you possibly wear a jumper or jacket on top of it, I've done so in the past, but then again that was in England, where rugby shirts are worn properly [​IMG] But please don't wear another collared shirt or even a t-shirt underneath it. At most a breathable sports-thermal like runners wear if you're looking for extra warmth.



    Ive never worn a jumper over a rugby shirt but maybe i will try it someday. Can it be any v neck jumper? And i would never tuck a rugby shirt into jeans as well.

    Yes and yes....

    I fully agree with Victor...

    A rugby shirt can be at best casual chic...

    Don't tuck it into your jeans,please...

    Do people think a long sleeved shirt under a rugby shirt is stylish or the done thing?
    Crew clothing websites and models do it as do a few others i believe.

    Pics of someone wearing a collared shirt (tennis, button-down, whatever else you can think of) under a rugby shirt? I want to see this [​IMG]

    As a rugby player this thread makes me sad.

    Under a rugby you can wear pads, an undershirt, or nothing. A second collar, be it a polo or button down, is an afront to the sport and the heritage of the garment.
