Italian Linen Stripe Regatta Jacket
Any heritage worth its salt comes with a few quirks.
To join the Cambridge Archetypals, legend says you have to meet three requirements: row in the Oxford-Cambridge boat race, get a third in your university degree (a fail, effectively), and spend three nights in Cambridge jail.
Our right-to-wear requirements are much simpler.
Same implied pedigree. Still legendary.
