Taking as his inspiration the clean court shoe with the irreverent blue smile on its toe, Todd has created a collection that took the sartorial codes of racquet sports then reinvented them for today’s modern mavericks who have their own unique personal style, both on-and-off the court. The sneaker was originally developed in the 1930s for its namesake Jack Purcell, the Canadian badminton player, who was a natural at hyping his sport and his eponymous kicks. Since then, the original court shoe became a go-to for everyone from tennis champions to creatives who redefined their crafts including James Dean, Ray Eames and Kurt Cobain.
This Long Sleeve Rugby takes many of the classic elements of sports apparel and reinvents them for the modern maverick. The fabric is a traditional solid cotton jersey, the collar is a twill, the buttons are rubber. In lieu of team heraldry, a canvas patch on the wearer’s left pocket features the Jack Purcell Racquet Club logo composed of two crossed badminton racquets and a shuttlecock. The red and blue stripes on the chest and arms tie back to the colors of the collection. Other vintage design details include a chain stitched logo in the wearer’s neck, and a neck tape in the pink. So, if you’re looking for a fresh take on the classic rugby, look no further.
