From Rowing Blazers Creative Director and founder Jack Carlson: “I was lucky - luckier than I realized at the time - to spend many summers as a young adult in Europe and New England. I spent a couple summers as a field archaeologist excavating an Etruscan temple in the countryside near Florence. On the weekends, I'd escape to Como with a few friends. We'd stay at a cheap hotel, spend the day floating on a little boat in the middle of the lake, and sit on a curb eating Neapolitan pizza out of a box at night. When I was on the national rowing team, I would spend the summer training on the Dartmouth campus in New Hampshire. It was idyllic. When we had a few days off, I would go to Nantucket with my girlfriend at the time. I remember it raining the whole time. We went to the beach anyway and ate Downyflake doughnuts from a soggy cardboard box. I guess I like eating out of boxes.”
