Our sweat shorts are very much for relaxing and is quite different to the early rugby playing uniforms. The origins of the game and rugby uniforms can be tracked back to 1823 where a young man called William Webb Ellis first ran with a ball at Rugby School. That was the moment that the game was invented and there was a need for some way to tell teams apart from one another. So the rugby kit was born, also responding to the need for comfort and functionality. At this time, the Rugby School was the first known team to play in a kit or uniform, which consisted of long flannels, shirts and caps, which were made out of loose-fitting cotton – not the most practical of outfits.
Manufactured from fleece lined 100% cotton, these Ellis Rugby Sweat Shorts feature a detailed applique Ellis Rugby Crest. Also, includes ecru coloured draw cord with decorative stitched ends. In addition stylish antique bronze eyelets and elasticated waist. Two classic side deep cut-in pockets wand on the black a single patch pocket.
