JRFC officially launch post-match attire06/11/2013
Jersey Rugby Football Club are pleased to announce and officially launch their brand new post-match attire for this season, provided as part of a new sponsorship deal with Ashworth and Bird; a leading independent designer retailer in Jersey.
Each player has had a bespoke made to measure navy jacket, white shirt and grey trouser crafted to their exact measurements by experienced tailors in-store at A&B Menswear at de Gruchy. This is the first time the Jersey team have had a personalised made to measure outfit as part of their non-playing clothing as the Club again take another step forward in professionalism to reflect their emerging brand.
Commenting on the new post-match attire, JRFC first team captain Alex Rae said: "It's great to get kitted out in such quality bespoke attire and helps the lads have an even greater sense of professionalism. It reflects well on the Club, especially at away matches and plays a smaller role in our great team spirit at St Peter this season.
"It matters how we are perceived by supporters, sponsors and the general public wherever we go, and standards on and off the field really do count. We are proud to be ambassadors for the Island wearing Ashworth and Bird's Made to Measure garments."
Rae added, "As players we certainly come in all different shapes and sizes therefore the Made to Measure clothing was a pleasant surprise and something you don't always experience at every professional club, helping make Jersey that extra bit special and unique."
A&B Menswear at de Gruchy is holding an in store Made to Measure event on Thursday 7th November 2013 for Jersey shoppers to see first-hand the service available on Island. Players from the JRFC 1st XV will be in store on the evening and special offers will be running throughout the promotion from Thursday 8th and Friday 9th November with fittings and appointments available for those men wishing to replicate a similar personalised style.
