Following a month-and-a-half’s worth of renovations, Rowing Blazers is set to reopen its New York flagship tomorrow, May 2.
The Rowing Blazers Clubhouse opened in June of 2018, as it was intended to simply be a three-month pop-up. From there, the brand extended the lease on a month-to-month basis, until they decided to turn the space into a permanent flagship.
Located on the corner of Grand and Centre, the Rowing Blazers Clubhouse has served as a communal gathering place for those in the neighborhood since its inception. The brand looks to keep this as an integral part of the redesigned flagship, which now houses a vintage pool table, a ping-pong table, foosball, a Streetfighter II arcade game, and an old school Coke dispenser.
The walls of the new and improved Rowing Blazers store showcase original artwork by Donald Robertson and Brian Nash. The brand’s signature zig zag stripe now covers the floor, while the ceiling is decorated with a single sculling boat.
New products featured in the space include hoodies, crewnecks, and T-shirts, in addition to blazers and rugbies, as well as items from Bowery Football Club, Edith Young, Sugarloaf Social Club, Jessica Biales, and Dylan Decker. Rowing Blazers is also carrying a range of vintage goods from founder Jack Carlson’s personal collection, pieces from Wooden Sleepers and Crowley Vintage, and rare Rolex, Heuer, and Seiko watches from Foundwell and Wind Vintage.
The Rowing Blazers Clubhouse will be open to the public once again beginning Thursday, May 2.
