Rowing Blazers International
Inspired by the power of travel and the beauty of sport
The Rowing Blazers International collection is inspired by the power of travel and the beauty of sport. ‘90s-inspired nylon running shorts that double as swim trunks, as well as nylon hats in a rainbow of neon colors; tourist-inspired tees (including a dual-color tee inspired by one of RB founder Jack Carlson’s favorite hotel “Do Not Disturb” signs from his collection); and a less parochial take on the classic flag sweater, featuring the flags of some places that are particularly close to our hearts or have some meaning in our lives.
Rowing Blazers founder Jack Carlson is a former world class athlete himself, who has raced all over the world, including representing the United States in rowing at three World Championships, winning a Bronze Medal in 2015. He’s also a voracious traveler; a vexillologist (someone who studies flags); a collector of tourist t-shirts and other memorabilia, including “Do Not Disturb” signs; and a former scholar of cross-cultural studies, earning degrees in Foreign Service from Georgetown and World Archaeology from Oxford.
All of this has informed Rowing Blazers as a brand. So while Jack was a U.S. team athlete, and Rowing Blazers is an American brand, we’ve always taken a more global perspective — and always wondered why the famous flag sweater couldn’t, or has never been, created featuring other world flags. Until now.
