what is

cut and sew?


Very simply it is pieces of coloured fabric cut to shape and sewn together to create your garment. Wherever two colours meet on your garment you will have a seam joining them together.

For shirts, this is also referred to as a “Panel” design which is the traditional method of creating rugby shirts. So if you are looking for a shirt with a traditional look and feel then ‘cut & sew’ is the ideal solution and we can offer some really nice designs in this style.

But some designs don’t lend themselves too well to a cut & sew method and hoops are a good example of this. Lots of thin hoops will mean lots of seams which aren’t comfortable for the wearer.

Cut & Sew designs are also perfect for creating a themed look through a range of different products and enable you to build a strong club identity. For example:

Leisure Shirt 

Polo Shirt



K2 Waterproof

Travel Jacket

Kits built for athletes
