Gieves & Hawkes of No.1 Savile Row London, and Old Bond Street Bath, are delighted to be working with Bath Rugby to present the Autumn/Winter Collection.
Team members Dave Attwood, Guy Mercer, Nick Abendanon, Anthony Watson and Jonathan Joseph were shot wearing key pieces from the collection at Bath Rugby's training ground, Farleigh House, by top photographer David Shields.
Bridging the gap between modern and traditional the collection brings a smart new look to country dressing.
The team are also sporting smart new Club blazers this season, all made-to-measure by Gieves & Hawkes Private Tailoring and featuring a bespoke commissioned new Club badge on the breast pocket.
Of the collaboration Gieves & Hawkes Creative Director, Jason Basmajian comments: "We love Bath and coming to Bath. The rugby club is the heart of the community and it is our pleasure to dress these young gentlemen off the field and for Club occasions."
Dave Attwood added: "It's important, as a representative of Bath Rugby, to look smart, even when off duty. Gieves & Hawkes offered us a wonderful, personal service and we left feeling incredibly well looked after. Hopefully we now look the part, too!"
Matt Powell, Bath Rugby's Business Development Director, is also extremely pleased with the partnership: "At Bath we strive to do things well, and the brands with whom we form partnerships must reflect this ambition. Linking up with Gieves & Hawkes was an easy decision to make, and we are very happy to be working with them."
An exclusive Bath Rugby lining will soon be available at Gieves & Hawkes Bath store for Private Tailoring orders.
