Pope shirts for rugby types


Though rugby analyst Brent Pope only launched his range of shirts last October, it is now stocked all over the country. The New Zealander and RTÉ pundit wanted shirts in premium quality fabrics that were easy to wash and iron and held their shape well. Coming from a rugby background, he also addressed the problems of sizing for muscular shapes and said that his shirts both feel good and look great. The range was a partnership with Arnotts and the spring collection will be on sale in five other Dublin locations from the end of March – Bertoni (Stephen’s Green and Talbot Street), Best Menswear (Dundrum), Michael Barrie (Duke Street), Tony Byrne (Malahide) and 14 other locations around Ireland. Prices start at €75. See popeshirts.com Photograph: Gráinne Walsh.
