Did You Know: Rugby and Yale "Secret" Connection.

Everyone knows by now that I am a Uber fan of Ralph Lauren Rugby. However, many may not know that I like reading up on secret societies/organizations. After doing some research I discovered "Skull and Bones" secret society on the campus of Yale.

"Skull and Bones is a secret society at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut. The society's alumni organization, which owns the society's real property and oversees the organization, is the Russell Trust Association, named for General William Huntington Russell, who co-founded Skull and Bones with classmate Alphonso Taft. The Russell Trust was founded by Russell and Daniel Coit Gilman, member of Skull and Bones and later a university president. The society is known informally as "Bones", and members are known as "Bonesmen".

President George H. W. Bush, his son President George W. Bush, and the latter's 2004 Presidential opponent Senator John Kerry are members of Skull and Bones." -Wikipedia

The skull and bones look has become very popular with brands such as Ralph Lauren Rugby and tv shows such as Gossip Girl. Personally, I like the skull and bone logo. When placed on a article of clothing that is somewhat preppy it instantly gives it an edgy look. My favorite skull and bone piece I own is a RL Rugby Deep Purple Skull and Bone tie. In addition to skull and bones Rugby has cardigans with the Yale Bulldog on them as well.

*RL Rugby and Skull and Bones are not affiliated.
