Rowing Blazers’ Jack Carlson on subverting collegiate style | #048

HandCut Radio

“The clothes that we think of as elitist came from a place of fun and irreverence,” says Jack Carlson, founder of New York based indie brand, Rowing Blazers. Over the past six years, Carlson and his team have democratised the clothes most associated with stuffy Ivy League and Oxbridge sporting institutions, giving them a new lease of life. We talk about this at length this week, as Aleks explores just how Jack has built a brand that feels fresh and inclusive as opposed to elitist and stuffy. Thanks for tuning in as always, we hope you enjoy listening.  ---HandCut Radio is produced by Birch, the London based creative office of James Allen.

Jack Carlson - founder of Rowing Blazers, designer, best-selling author, and former world champion bronze medalist.

OT: The Podcast

If there's such a thing as a *normal* path to founding a fashion brand, Jack Carlson didn't follow it. Before he was a designer and best-selling author, Carlson was an archaeologist who rowed at a national level. But as we discover in this dive into the fascinating and occasionally weird and tradition-bound world of rowing, there's a rich history that blurs the lines of sports, fashion, and cultural anthropology. For Carlson, research turned into a book (celebrated by none other than Mr. Ralph Lauren himself), which turned into Rowing Blazers. We talk about what the brand is, how the distinctive identity was formed, and who it's for (hint — not just rowers), as well as the joys of a good watch and what it feels like to watch TV and see Tan France wearing your blazer. Or the surprise in finding out that multi-Grammy winning rapper Macklemore, has been one of your best customers since day one! Make sure to listen to the end because there's an Easter egg in there for watch fans. This episode is made possible by our sponsor, eBay.  Show notes: Mido Ocean Star GMT Accidentally Wes Anderson on Instagram Rowing Blazers Rowing Blazers on Instagram Jack Carlson on Instagram Eric Wind on Instagram Wind Vintage The Pink Panther 1963 Trailer How to follow us: Instagram: @ot.podcast Facebook: @OTPodcastAU Follow hosts: @fkscholz + @andygreenlive on Instagram.

Vibe Check #30: Jack Carlson On Why Rowing Blazers Isn’t the ‘Whitest Brand Ever’

Vibe Check

Jack Carlson’s background is in rowing (he was so good he was on the US national team), but he’s found a new calling in gear. The self-described “streetwear omnivore” built a brand mixing the worlds of preppy style with youthful sportswear, offering everything from hardy, colorful rugby shirts to patchwork Barbour collabs and cheeky send-ups of finance bro style.This all is represented best at the Rowing Blazers flagship store in SoHo, which has been closed due to Covid-19. But now Carlson is using his brand as a platform not just to combat coronavirus through making masks from leftover fabric, but also a way to stand up against racism and acknowledge the influence Black culture has had on taking prep style to a whole new level.Stay tuned for new episodes of Vibe Check every Tuesday and Thursday.
