JACK CARLSON IN MONOCLE
Our founder Jack Carlson was recently featured in issue 7 of The Entrepreneurs, a “business handbook for people with bright ideas from the editors and bureaux of Monocle Magazine.” The article talks about the expansion of the Rowing Blazers world through the heritage brands Jack’s helped re-launch — like Warm & Wonderful, Gyles & George and Arthur Ashe — and offers a few important business tips straight from Jack himself:
Avoid expansion for expansion’s sake.
Keep original creators involved and give them credit.
Don’t be afraid of irreverence and shaking up the rules.
