About Us

Rowing Blazers is an American brand and design studio known for its colorful, inclusive, slightly subversive take on the classics, as well as its cult following, celebrity clientele, and wide-ranging collaborations.

Originally created by designer, archaeologist, and former U.S. national team oarsman Jack Carlson, the brand brings together elements from the worlds of tailoring, sportswear, and streetwear, and combines a reverence for quality and tradition with an irreverence for the rules.

Rowing Blazers began as a tailoring house dedicated to crafting club blazers (the world’s first sporting uniforms). Today the brand continues this tradition, making blazers for many of the world’s most storied clubs. But the brand also draws inspiration from the world of sport more broadly, as well as from literature, pop culture, and the American “preppy” canon. Beyond tailoring, Rowing Blazers is also known for its rugby and polo shirts, outerwear, knits, and accessories, as well as its wide-ranging collaborations with the likes of Gucci, Target, Seiko, Tudor, Tag Heuer, Barbour, FILA, Umbro, Noah, J. Press, Eric Emanuel, Tracksmith, and the NBA. 

Rowing Blazers has developed a cult following that includes Oscar winners and royalty, Apollo astronauts and Olympic gold medalists, Wimbledon and NBA champions, and other luminaries in art, sport, academia, film, music, and exploration.

Since 2024, Rowing Blazers has been part of the Burch family of brands, alongside Staud, Solid & Striped, and other beloved brands.  We are a small, young, New York-based team, as well as a diverse, global community. We invite you to discover our world, and to join us.
