After browsing through Rowing Blazers by Jack Carlson, one thing is clear: Nobody rocks a blazer quite like a rower. Whether they're neatly pressed or tattered and torn, the athletes featured in this book bring sizable swagger to a classic fashion staple steeped in tradition.
The book features beautifully authentic photos of real-life oarsmen and women from universities, colleges, schools and clubs around the world, along with descriptions about the sport's legendary rituals, athletes and races. Even Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, the twin rowers made famous in The Social Network, make an appearance. The variety and artistry of the blazers in this book make it quite a page-turner and the models are pretty easy on the eyes, too.
Rowing Blazers is a great gift for rowers, rowing fans or anyone interested in the intersection of fashion and sport. Rowers and non-rowers alike can agree that a sharp blazer is always in style.
