Vintage British Isles Polo




The Vintage British Isles Polo Shirt. A vintage inspired design featuring the vintage British Isles Crest as well as Ellis Rugby branding. The vintage crest features on the left chest of this garment with Ellis Rugby branding on the arm.

The jersey worn for the 1930 British Isles tour of New Zealand featured three heraldic Lions on the badge. The kit was the worn again for the 1936 tour of Argentina. A delegation led by the Irish lock George Beamish conveyed their displeasure at the fact no Green for Ireland featured on the strip. This displeasure was because the strip featured the Blue of Scotland, Red of Wales and White of England. The socks received the addition of a Green flash, ensuring the inclusion of all of the colours of the British Isles.

This tour is remembered as the first where the team gained its famous nickname. The players selected for the 1930 tour had 12 months to arrange six months. In addition the players needed to accumulate £80 each to bank the committee for expenses. The players making the trip also had to provide their own dinner jacket. The dinner jacket was to be worn nightly when dining.

This Polo shirt is manufactured from 100% chunky pique cotton. The Vintage British Isles Polo features detailed embroidery and appliqué badge. Also included on this garment is inner contrast placket, arm rib and collar stand. In addition Ellis Rugby branding features on the arm in the form of the Ellis Rugby Crest.

The Vintage British Isles Polo is available in sizes S to 4XL.
