The Argentina 1910 vintage rugby shirt is made with a heavyweight slub cotton which gives the shirt a hard wearing yet soft and comfortable finish.
This heritage ‘old school’ shirt combines vintage colour dyes with a distressed wash to produce a nicely worn-in look and feel.
In 1910 a side managed by Oxford University – supposedly the England national team, but including three Scottish players— toured Argentina as part of the celebrations for the 100th anniversary of the May Revolution. The people of Argentina termed it the “Combined British”, also known as “Great Britain XV”. Argentina made its international debut against this team under the name “The River Plate Rugby Football Union” on 12 June. The match was played at Sociedad Sportiva Argentina of Palermo and Argentina lost 28–3.
The first trip of the Argentina national rugby team to the other side of the Atlantic was to Rhodesia and South Africa in 1965. The team acquired the nickname Los Pumas, from a local journalist after their first tour match. The journalist mistook the animal that appeared on the UAR emblem for a puma Nevertheless, the nickname has remained as a mark of identity for the team since then.
