Before Rowing Blazers launched, we wanted to design an eye-catching stripe that recalls the wild "deck-chair" stripes of club blazers often seen (even today) at Henley Royal Regatta, Cambridge, and Oxford. Armed only with Microsoft Paint, and using the stripes of a vintage croquet wicket for inspiration, co-founder and former national champion oarswoman Keziah Beall designed what would become the brand's signature stripe. Rowing Blazers has made jackets for both men and women in the house Croquet Stripe since day 1, and they've graced the backs of celebrities from actor Will Ferrell to Olympic gold medalist Kerri Walsh, menswear icon Poggy "the Man", and Lance Thomas of the New York Knicks. The same stripe was used in an instantly sold-out shorts collaboration with Eric Emanuel this summer, a performance singlet collaboration with Tracksmith this fall, and a signet ring created with Jessica Biales this winter. Now, for the first time, we are launching one of our main categories - the rugby shirt - in our signature croquet stripe. In collaboration with Sports D'Epoque.
Super heavyweight (400g / 14 oz.) rugby jersey with our signature vertical croquet stripes. Handmade in Europe.
100% cotton, knitted in the traditional 12 gauge style. Stunning material and craftsmanship. Feels incredible. Rugby collar; three-button placket. More fitted than our dad rugbies and soccer shirts.
We recommend sizing up for a looser fit.
