Rugby's Version of Barbour
Rugby Ralph Lauren is biting the dust in about a week, but I feel certain that Sir Ralph will create something even better and cooler. While we wait, I thought I would do a quick post on Rugby's version of Barbour Jackets (pictured above). I love this jacket very much, but it isn't built like a Barbour Jacket. The lining (though nice) isn't quite up to par, and the corduroy collar isn't as good of quality either. But, for just a tat over $150, the price of a Barbour Jacket isn't worth the differences in quality.
I do own a Barbour, but I did purchase mine from eBay. I sprayed the darn thing down three times with Lysol, and then put it in the dryer with a Dryel bag and kit. You just never know where something has been.
