FROM FLANKER TO FASHIONISTO

Former Scotland rugby international Donnie Mcfadyen is now designing men's vintage clothing, and selling it through Threadbare on Broughton St.

He told Spurtle's Scott Richards how a recent chance encounter with organisers resulted in his creations being exhibited at February's prestigious St Andrew's University Charity Show along with top international brands such as Jaeger.

Seeing his clothes on the catwalk was an experience he describes as different to but no less emotional and inspirational than standing on the pitch at Murrayfield singing ‘Flower of Scotland’.
