Rowing Blazers in Harper’s Bazaar: How the Rugby Shirt Became a Cool-Kid Staple
We’re honored to be featured in an interview with Chloë Sevigny for Harper’s Bazaar: How the Rugby Shirt Became a Cool-Kid Staple.
Chloë Sevigny is wearing a rugby shirt to a playground somewhere in downtown New York. I know this, because she tells me. She quite literally says to me over the phone, “I’m wearing a rugby shirt right now by Rowing Blazers. It’s warm and it’s easy and it’s casual. It’s basically a nicer version of a sweatshirt,” before she pauses and adds, “I mean, it has a collar!”
“Rugby, unlike tennis or polo or golf, comes with a bit of an edge.” Chloë Sevigny knows: It’s the unsung hero of prep. Originally designed to uniform the wild conditions of the game of rugby in Europe, the shirt is thick, warm and finished with cuffs and a collar.
