The Rugby World Cup returns home to England, this autumn, in what will be one of the sporting highlights of the year.
TheChicGeek says "Rugby style, particularly the rugby shirt, never really goes out of style. Whether in team colours or bold stripes, it was a favourite of artist David Hockney and was heavily referenced by John Ray, Creative Director at dunhill, at both his spring and autumn 15 collections."
