100% CARDED COTTON

Carded cotton is hard to come by these days. It's thicker, more rugged and far more durable than standard combed cotton. But it's what the very first rugby jerseys were made from back in the day, long before moisture wicking spandex.

Because of the carded cotton's rigidity, the Steeltown Rugby Shirt falls like a traditional rugby jersey. It starts to take the shape of your body as you wear it and develops unique wear patterns over time.

REPRESENTING #8

We make our home here at 8 Barton Street East in downtown Hamilton. It's our headquarters. Our mission control. The spiritual epicentre of our community of misfits, rebels and outsiders. Some call it The House of Free Spirits. Others call it Steeltown. But we all wear the 8 proudly.

HISTORY

The gentleman-hooligans of the early days of rugby wore dress shirts and trousers. But the shirt tails were too easy to grab onto. So they were replaced by collared wool jumpers. But wool stretched too much during the game. So, finally, rugged cotton shirts with a stiff gentleman's collar became the go-to uniform on the pitch.

These original thick cotton shirts - half-hooligan, half-gentleman - were the inspiration for the Steeltown Rugby Shirt. Now a staple in the fashion world, rugby shirts have reached all the way from the rural rugby club to Paris fashion week.

STEELTOWN RUGBY SHIRT

They say rugby is a hooligan's sport played by gentlemen. We sure as hell don’t play rugby. But there’s something there we can relate to. The idea that none of us is either totally hooligan, or totally gentle.

The rugby shirt dresses the juxtaposition perfectly. A clean, crisp white drill collar standing at attention to appease the gentle soul within us all. Paired with rugged as hell, no frills, heavyweight carded cotton to withstand the rigours of a life lived in the wild.
