When Jack Carlson penned Rowing Blazers, he created a unique and elegant anthology of the hard-charging yet tradition-bound rowing culture.
An instant classic, it’s a welcome edition to any gentleman’s classic style and menswear library. The book also showcases the vibrant and eccentric designs of the world’s rowing clubs’ historic and in some cases, iconic, blazers.
As a personal homage to his love of the sport and appreciation of its history and culture, Jack began doodling mini blazers in his spare time; different colors, different designs, different badges. Just for fun.
Well, that pastime turned into a personal talisman when he had a one-off version of the necktie made and then sported it in his Rowing Blazers book. It proved a bit of an obsession with some readers asking where they too could get one.
Well, now you can – at least for a brief time.
Get your own limited edition Rowing Blazers Necktie and channel your inner oarsman. It looks pretty cool in the picture above and even nicer in person. The one Jack sent us is a fantastic heavyweight silk navy twill, made in England, and looks great with just about anything. The blazers are amazingly detailed and each one has a personality all its own.
This is a special tie and we love it – an heirloom that’s a unique as it is a bit of preppy inspired fun.
