Rowing blazers opens brooklyn pop-up

by Stephen Garner

Rowing Blazers has opened a new pop-up at 103 North 3rd Street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn – the same location at North 3rd Street Market where the brand held its sample sale earlier this month.

Joining an incredible community of neighbors, the Rowing Blazers Brooklyn pop-up will feature the current fall/winter 2019 collection, as well as an assortment of the brand’s classic rugbies, blazers, tees, and hats.

“I love Williamsburg, and I think it’s a great vibe for our brand,” says Rowing Blazer founder Jack Carlson. “Rowing Blazers has a lot of fans in Brooklyn, and I think it’s nice to have a satellite location there. This is a much smaller space and a slightly different concept from our SoHo Clubhouse too.”

The shop, which will remain open through Christmas, will celebrate its grand opening tonight from 6pm to 9pm.

This news comes as the brand’s second delivery of the season drops. Included in the delivery are three lambswool cricket sweaters – handmade in England using the most traditional four-gauge cableknit techniques, but rendered in three irreverent, slightly subversive, colorways anchor the collection.

They are supplemented by a split-color rugby, and five super heavyweight rugby jerseys in solid colors embroidered with a satin-stitch rendering of a portcullis – a medieval heraldic motif representing a gate, and also the badge of Wallingford, England, a town where Carlson spent much of his rowing career. The deceptively simple but stately motif is also emblazoned on the back of two Japanese Oxford cloth button-downs and a dad hat, alongside two other new dad hats.

Rowing Blazers fall/winter 2019 Delivery Two is now available online and at the Rowing Blazers stores in SoHo, Williamsburg, and Brentwood.
