The #TartanTakeover is here - Scotland Rugby RWC 2015 Kit has landed

Back in July 2015, #TartanTakeover was trending on Twitter.

Why, you ask?

Well the Scotland Rugby World Cup jerseys were released to the public, and the general consensus was extremely positive, after Scottish Rugby delivered the fans with online pictures of the players wearing the new kit.

The strip, designed by Macron, paid homage to Scotland’s roots, with a classic dark blue jersey matched alongside white shorts and navy socks, which Scotland have fashioned down the years.

A modern twist was added to the strip, with a tartan trim flowing down the sides of the jersey, as well as around the collar.

We decided to delve a little further into the origin of the tartan, and the purpose of its introduction…

Scotland Rugby Top Tartan - Rugbystuff

Tartan has been associated with Scotland since before Victorian times, when it belonged to districts and regions across the country.

It wasn’t until the 19th century, however, before tartans were used for clans, and ever since, new tartans have been created for multiple families, areas and corporations, including the Scottish Rugby Union, who designed their own in 1990, following the famous Five Nations Grand Slam.

2015 marked the 25th anniversary of the Scottish Rugby tartan, giving it all the more reason to be added to the kit.

The strip was worn throughout Scotland’s 2015 World Cup campaign, which kicked off with a match against Japan on Wednesday the 23rd of September, at the Kingsholm Stadium in Gloucester.

Alongside the home and alternate kits, Scotland also released their training and leisurewear collections.

A singlet, polo shirt and cotton tee are all included, as is a blue camo coloured training jersey, a design not seen on many shirts, although it is similar to the very popular home jersey of South African side, the Bulls.

Scotland are optimistic going into the Rugby World Cup later this year, and if there was a trophy for best kit, they’d be right up there!
