Not all sports gear translates well into everyday fashion -- then again, if you don't think 1980s women's shoulder pads were hot, you're clearly not a Working Girl. For truly handsome casual-wear inspired by a rough-and-tumble sport, look to Rugby.
An elegantly tough take on Ralph Lauren's legacy of prep, Rugby reinvents vintage and heritage classics with a collection of sweaters, rugbys, denim, and plaid shirting that says, "I'm going to tackle you to the ground, and look really quite nice while doing it". The brand's Holiday Collection features plenty of cold-weather favorites, from the Wool Intarsia Ski Sweater (a stylish homage to the classic reindeer number) to the Lambswool Shawl Pullover, which does "rugged meets refined" even better than when that eccentric crocodile poacher charmed the pants off that sexy American newspaper reporter. The finery continues with a slew of gifts for both men and women, all priced under $100, including hats, scarves, shirts, and many other items that buying online'll keep you from actually having to step out in freezing temps with a hat/scarf/shirt on.
Get the run of all the goods in-store or online at Rugby.com, including the Men's & Women's Gifts Under $100 categories, but not including those hilarious little shorts -- because hey, even with as stylish a sport as rugby, not everything translates.
