Ivy League Rowing Tee
Blades dance across water as smooth as glass.
Oarsmen move as one.
“Ease up!” “Even it out!” “Power ten!”
For 181 years and counting, rowing enthusiasts journey to the English town of Henley-on-Thames for the Royal Henley Regatta.
As the victorious crew passes, it’s those handsome jerseys that tie them together.
Some say for life.
The Henley’s name is derived from the traditional uniform of the rowers of this very town. In the 1940s the Henley’s pullover style and round neckline (sans collar) were a welcome substitute to the ordinary polo shirt.
Ivy League Rowing Tee (No. 6601). Back then you would have worn a heavy wool/cotton blend. Our version is a robust 190 grams of 100% ring-spun cotton slub knit. Knit rib collar and cuffs (“ringer tee”). Two-tone rowing tab at center-front collar. Raglan short sleeve for movement and comfort.
Preferred (but not required) to be worn when the race is on.
Should someone say, “Nice race, old sport,” just smile. Imported.
