Autumn Internationals Edit
Tuesday 8th November, 2016 | Posted by Marchbrae
The leaves are falling and the temperature is dropping but the international rugby union schedule is hotting up. November brings us the start of the Autumn Internationals where the home nations play host to some of the best rugby talent the world has to offer. Wherever you are and whoever you are backing, we have some excellent products to help you show your nation's colours. We've selected some items from Peter James, Joules, Barbour and Lochcarron to represent the home nations in the stands, in the pub or at home.
Lightweight and excellent for layering up in the cold, this poncho from Peter James is super soft thanks to its merino wool fabric. A one size item that is incredibly versatile, we suggest pairing with some thick knitwear underneath to battle the chill.
A classic style polo shirt featuring a subtle tonal tartan design on the shoulders, the Sunen is one of a few items available at a final sale price so you can bag yourself an incredible deal. This polo has a comfortable fit and can be worn with just about anything. An excellent addition to any wardrobe.
How about showing your colours subtly with this great little accessory? Featuring Joules' hare motif, the Swinton Barcelet is a slim metal and enamel bangle that adds a pop of colour. This item is also avialable as part of the end of season sale so can be had for a reduced price.
Made from 100% pure wool, this lambswool tie from Lochcarron offers a perfect way to add a splash of green to your gameday outfit. Made by one of the oldest weavers in Scotland, you know you are getting a quality product from the experts of their craft.
Another item from Lochcarron this time in the form of a wool scarf. This was made for events like the Autumn Internationals. An excellent way to show your support and keep warm too.
If you really want to make a statement, then we have a range of kilts available 'off the rack'. Show your national pride on match days with one of our ladies or gents kilts available in a variety of tartans. We have all kinds of accessories to complement our highland wear.
Featuring a high ribbed collar, this half zip sweater is excellent for keeping the heat in. Crafted from the finest quality cashmere, this sweater is incredibly soft and heardwearing. The heather brick colour is warm and bright, great for adding a flash of colour to any wardrobe.
Another excellent cashmere item is this Marchbrae scarf. Again, the quality can be felt as soon as you put it on; super soft, warm and durable. Whether it's for watching the Autumn Internationals or for everyday wear, this cashmere scarf will stand up to the test.
There you have it, our picks themed on this year's Autumn rugby fixtures. We wish the home nations all the best in their upcoming matches.
