Welcome to CV22
Established in the English market town of Rugby, birthplace of "The Greatest Game on Earth", CV22 is a lifestyle brand that combines timeless British style, authentic Rugby heritage and uncompromising quality.
Having been "raised in Rugby on rugby" we recognised the need for menswear inspired by the game that also delivers exactly what the style conscious rugby lover demands, without being teamwear.
"Whilst shopping for clothes ahead of a holiday in 2011 I was hit by the abrupt realisation that nothing of the quality or style I wanted was obviously available from British manufacturers.
There's a look which often makes us easily identifiable as rugby lovers and players. I myself am a huge fan of a good pair of tailored shorts with a polo shirt and a pair of flip flops - I can wear this all year round.
But I'm equally as comfortable in a tweed jacket, or my club blazer and tie with a smart shirt and a good set of cufflinks.
It started with an idea for T-shirts but soon became much more. Our collaborations with established British manufacturers such as Deakin & Francis have really helped to enhance our own collections of watches, polo shirts, ties, scarves, leather luggage and flip flops.
I firmly believe that Great Britain is still home to some of the finest garment manufacturers in the world and I'm just a rugby lover who appreciates style, quality and service - so I made something that I felt was missing." Oliver Taylor - Founder.
CV22 opens its flagship store in Rugby to coincide with the end of this year's Rugby World Cup on October 31st 2015.
