Barbour x Rowing Blazers (Shop Barbour x Rowing Blazers limited edition collaboration)
Rowing Blazers and British heritage outerwear brand Barbour are teaming up for a limited edition collaboration. This capsule is understated, designed as much for the city as the countryside, and built first and foremost for the Japanese customer: it uses a lighter-weight waxed cotton in Barbour’s timeless Beaufort silhouette for the first time ever.
The exterior of the jacket combines Barbour’s two most iconic colors, navy and sage, in a single split colorway and features bright brass buttons. The interior features Rowing Blazers’ signature Croquet Stripe pattern for the half-moon lining, while the label made for this collaboration unites our brands and is based on the original “Barbour’s of South Shields” label. The collection includes a matching split rugby and corduroy-billed hat as well.
“When Barbour approached us about a collaboration, I jumped at it. When I was at Oxford, I spent my ‘free time’ coaching the men’s crews at Oriel College. My default coaching uniform in autumn and spring was my Barbour Beaufort jacket,” says Rowing Blazers founder Jack Carlson. “Traipsing through the wet fields around the boathouse, finding my way through the fog of Christ Church Meadow at zero dark thirty, and driving the coaching launch is the closest I ever came to hunting.”
