Swapping club pennants and ties with players from touring sides is a great Rugby tradition, one that represents the mutual respect and sportsmanship also mirrored in the ritual of buying your opposite number a drink after a hard fought game.
At CV22 we are proud to continue in this tradition, swapping our specially designed CV22 club ties with visitors to our boutique store in Rugby. Our founder Oli Taylor is a local Rugby player with more than 30 years of playing history, and has designed our signature CV22 club ties to feature our ‘kissing 2’s motif, celebrating the CV22 area and the origins of the sport. Our Ties are a lustrous woven jacquard fabric that are hand sewn in England into our signature club-swapping ties.
We were extremely honoured recently when the CV22 tie swapping tradition was kicked off by Marcos Ayerza – (Leicester Tigers & Argentina's loose head prop and CV22 fan) - who on a visit to our store swapped his Argentina South Africa tour tie. Which is now on display in our Lawrence Sheriff Street store.
If you are a proud Rugby player, current or retired, and would like to join us and Marcos in this proud tradition, we would be very happy to swap club ties with you, whether a visiting tourist making the pilgrimage to the famous close at Rugby school, a visit to the World Rugby Hall of Fame, a local player, or indeed one of our wonderful regular customers; please bring your own club ties to swap with us and we will display them here in the birthplace of Rugby Football.
