Rugby by Ralph Lauren announced recently that they will be closing all store locations by next February. The high priced preppy clothing line, didn’t end up catching on amongst the private school crowd as much as once envisioned. In my opinion the clothing line was quietly inspired by Gossip Girl, the popular upper end NYC prep school drama.
From rugby styled polos to classic suiting, the classic Ivy/Prep School look comes with an urban twist. The discounts coming with the closing of this high end brand are definitely a steal.
I can’t speak for the ladies here, but guys: if you’re going for the Chuck Bass look (not necessarily his attitude), Rugby is the place to spend your $.
