The current team jerseys, however, barely scratch up to the ones I saw in Seelio. These jerseys came from Sports D'Epoque - a French company that specialises in 'Made In France' historic team jerseys from local provincial French teams, cities, national jerseys and international team jerseys. The website is accompanied by vintage photos that send you on a nostalgic journey back to when rugby was played by intelligent men, not walnuts, and each jersey comes with it's own unique story and product information which is sent out with the package. What I am trying to say to you is, this makes an excellent Christmas present that is unique, well-made and stylish and they are very reasonably priced.
I personally purchased the jersey of Bayonne and I have to say it is my favourite walking jumper and the vintage nature of it mixed with light colours means I get a Ralph Lauren chic feeling without having to subscribe to a rugby team that currently exists, thereby avoiding all conflict should I bump into a mindless zealot from a local rugby club looking for a fight.
