Description
Renowned designer and former US national team oarsman Jack Carlson's revised and expanded edition of Rowing Blazers is an essential and glorious celebration of the classic garment.

This handsome, eye-catching ode to the classic rowing blazer is a must-have for anyone who has raced the rivers or cheered on their favorite crew. Classic American style was born in British boathouses, where the very first blazers were made for college rowing clubs. This book, now revised and expanded, was created by champion rower Jack Carlson, who offers an insider's guide to the elaborately striped, piped, trimmed, and badged garments, as well as the stories, historic clubs, and races associated with them and, of course, the elite athletes themselves.

Featuring stunning color photographs, Rowing Blazers is a visual feast, transporting readers to the highly atmospheric boathouses, campuses, and team rooms of clubs around the world. This revised edition features some 40 additional clubs, including the University of Tokyo; the Shanghai Rowing Club; Row New York, a nonprofit organization stressing academic achievement as well as rowing prowess; and Manley Career Academy High School in Chicago, the first all-Black high school rowing team in the US.
