Pairing ties and pocket squares is an art that - when executed well - provides a wonderful playground for self-expression in an otherwise uniform outfit.

The rugby shirt has been a part of many people's casual wardrobes as far back as the 1980s, enjoying a wave of mainstream popularity in the 1990s when well-known designers such as Tommy Hilfiger and Ralph Lauren caught onto the trend and included the rugby in their collections. The popularity waned somewhat in recent years; however the last couple of seasons have seen rugby tops making a big comeback, with the last couple of years seeing them out in force.
