What does Old School mean?

The dictionary defines it as something close to old-fashioned, but it's a term with more pride behind it. If someone says, “I'm old school,” they're saying they do it like it used to be done, which they believe was a better way. This word can be used as a noun or as an adjective, and the opposite is new school.

Established in the heart of Stellenbosch in 2019, Old School Rugby Jerseys was initially known for its athletic timeless design of rugby jerseys that unites a nation for any sport and any occasion.

Rebranding to Old School in 2021 has seen the brand grown into new markets with their new trend setting casual fashion style.

At Old School we are on a mission to re-invent the rugby jersey, while reflecting a distinctive South African perspective. We strive to be an innovator in aspirational lifestyle branding and believe that we will have an influence on the way people dress and the way that people pride themselves in supporting locally sourced and manufactured brands.


We pride ourselves in the fact that our jerseys has been seen by millions through commercials with Heineken and numerous celebrities across South Africa.

Support local, support Old School.
