Jack Carlson, founder of Rowing Blazers, writes: €œI grew up with Umbro. Living in England as a little kid in the early €˜90s, it was the weekend uniform. (During the week, the school blazer was quite literally the uniform). Umbro was innovative in creating patterned soccer jerseys. Their sublimated geometric patterns, the creative use of stripes, even tartan €” and of course their famous checkerboard design €” have always been inspiring to me. I collect soccer jerseys too, and love wearing the funkier ones. A good, collared soccer jersey in an unusual pattern often beats a polo... And I basically live in soccer shorts when it€™s warm out. So for this collaboration, I wanted to take some of our signature patterns and fabrics €” our trademark croquet stripe, the gun club check house tweed, our navy, and red zig-zag stripe, and a classic Gordon Modern tartan €” and render them on Umbro jerseys, crinkle-nylon coach jackets, and of course shorts. We don€™t normally blast our logo on product, but to see Rowing Blazers in the sponsor logo placement on an Umbro jersey was too good to pass up. The coat of arms on the jersey is my personal coat of arms, granted by the College of Arms in London €” with references to my time on the national rowing team, my career in classical archaeology, and my childhood dog."
