Ok clearly - this is kinda right in the middle of the wheelhouse. Rowing Blazers, the new book from Jack Carlson, debuts on September 2nd. I received an advance copy this week - and can assure that it is EVERYTHING one would hope it would be. Great photography. Great style. And great history.
Take a look . . .
"Classic American style was born in British boathouses, where the very first
blazers were fashioned for college rowing clubs. This book, created by champion
rower Jack Carlson, offers an insider’s guide to the elaborately striped, piped,
trimmed, and badged garments, as well as the stories, elite athletes, historic clubs,
and races associated with them. Featuring lush photographs by “prep”
guru F.E. Castleberry, Rowing Blazers is a definitive visual feast, transporting
readers to the highly atmospheric boathouses, campuses, and team rooms of clubs
around the world. For anyone who has raced the rivers or lined the banks, this
handsome ode to the eye-catching, evocative rowing blazer is a must."
