Describe the target audience for your clothing design

Educated, affluent rugby player and or fan. Preppy male or female, aged 23-40, well educated. Classy taste in clothing - wears t-shirts occasionally but they are nice, simple and classy looking. Rugby players do not like gaudy or flashy apparel. They also do not like excessively colorful t-shirts that stand out. Rugby players tend to admire simplicity in design and more modestly toned t-shirts. However they can also appreciate the current trends for ring spun, athletic fitting t-shirts because rugby players tend to be in very good shape and therefore their body type fits these shirts out nicely.

Furthermore, stencils, outlines and intriguing vector prints of rugby players making tackles, running with the ball, rucking and shooting the boot, hold a lot of appeal to members of the rugby community both young and old.

In general, rugby players prefer shirt colors like navy, grey, dark green, black, and white.

What 3 things would you like to communicate to your audience through your clothing design?

It’s not necessarily that rugby players want the latest trends; they simply want something that looks good, wears comfortably and associates them with rugby. The 4 things we are and communicate: Iconic, Universal, Classy & Simple.

How many colors should be used in the design?

No preference but typically 2-4 colors.

- Please remember that our brand is trying to convey rugby in a classy, simple way.
