The Varsity Matches have been played annually since 1872, with the games representing the pinnacle of amateur and student rugby between prestigious universities, Oxford and Cambridge.

The Varsity Match Company worked closely with Walker Slater to design a classic pattern with a modern presence, honing the colours of the teams into the perfect fabric for the collection. The quintessential herringbone is made up of dark navy and light, teal laced blue which complement one another admirably.

An offering of formal men's and ladies' garments, plus accessories, are available to fans of the matches, providing opportunity of a memorable gift for friends and family.

The 2021 Varsity Match is being held this Sunday 4th July—good luck to the teams

"Walker Slater are thrilled to work with the Varsity Match on their tweed collection, using a bespoke Borders tweed honing the colours of the two teams – Oxford and Cambridge, the balance is perfect. The cloth represents equally the two teams and the colours are complementary to each other making for an interesting and stand-out herringbone cloth. With our home in Scotland, we are pleased to have a partnership which grew from and was developed through our Covent Garden store."
- Paul Walker, Walker Slater Director
