I know the feeling of pride that comes from wearing a rugby or soccer shirt, knowing that it will attract people who matter in the neighborhood and / or on the road, who know the meaning of pride in being able to wear such a shirt and what it can do for people who wear them.” – CM Punk. “It’s not only the colour or the design of the shirt, but how it makes you feel inside. It’s like having a little piece of your own personality on display.
For those of you who are not aware of the term, a sports shirt (sport polo shirt) is more than just an ordinary jersey; it’s an original work of art made of 100% cotton, with a unique graphic print or design imprinted on it. When people buy such a shirt, it can either be bought as a one-time-only product by the brand or manufacturer or it can be worn over again by the wearer. The latter is called a replica sports shirt. Some companies producing sports shirts include Puma, Adidas, Nike, and Under Armour.
A rugby shirt is just another term used for a polo shirt that has been adapted to wear in place of a standard sports jersey. It’s not an entirely unique garment, considering the close relative of the traditional sports jersey, the football jersey. However, it does represent a different genre altogether. A rugby shirt is usually white, having the word “Rugby” printed across the chest area and sleeves. Although the latter is more often associated with the game of rugby, the term sports shirt is used to describe any type of polo-style sports garment that can be worn as casual or athletic clothing.
