I’ve wanted a rugby shirt for a while, but I really needed a good reason to buy one. When my buddy Liam told me there is a rugby shirt out there that’s strong as an ox and inspired by our great outdoors I knew I had to jump on. I grabbed Polaris in an XL (usually size L, but go off their sizing chart for better reference) and I love it. The colors, the heft, the uniquely campy take on a sporty piece. No wonder the climbers of the 70s added this garment to their arsenal. I get compliments left and right on the streets and I’ve climbed with it, scraping and scratching it on the crag with not a sign of wear (yet). It’s a great shirt and piece of gear and I will be buying a shirt again when a colorway comes out reminiscent of some of my favorites that I was unfortunate enough not to know about at the time of release—the Rainier, Sequoia, and Zion (beautiful designs, just beautiful).
From a technical standpoint I recommend going up a size If you have a big wide back and shoulders, at least from my experience. That’s where I have found the most comfort.
Otherwise I have no notes, no guff to give.
Try not to get tired of seeing and hearing from me Withernot, because I’m sticking around.
Love the quality and the build. I would go one size up, if you prefer a roomer fit.
Wore to Portland pride and to an Australian restaurant (I know, right?) and got lots of comments and complements! Very nice shirt.
