Rowing Refinement: The Head Of The Charles

A good crew is powerful thing, and a world-class crew is reserved for few. For two days every October, the global elite unite with their crews on Boston’s Charles River to compete in the gold standard of rowing competitions. The camaraderie is catching. Onlookers from across the country and around the world join hundreds of thousands of rowers for a magnificent symphony of sport and style that has inspired for more than 50 years.

Rowing is historically in season during the warm-weather days of spring and summer, but passion is a beautiful thing and has driven athletes to extend their season into the fall with the Head Of The Charles Regatta. There’s no better time to visit Boston than the fall––the brisk water, amber-hued foliage and historic architecture make for a cinematic setting amid the height of academia. And the style is not to be missed: American classics at their rugged-preppy best, representing generations of scholarly New England sculling.

Brooks Brothers is thrilled to celebrate a decade supporting this ongoing tradition of elegant sport, outfitting rowers and fans alike with our largest Head Of The Charles collection to date. Nearly 100 limited-edition pieces will be available at the event, and an exclusive selection is now available online to equip one and all for a stylish race. 

We invite you to explore the HOCR collection and join us at the regatta on October 18 and 19. Unable to make it? Enjoy or gift your favorite pieces, designed with the sporting spirit, and check back soon for an inside look at the event.
