As from 1 January 2017 we have changed suppliers for our official Leander Regatta blazers, which can be tailored appropriately for both men or women.
The Full Shield Blazer may only be worn by those Leander athletes and coaches who are Full Members and have represented Leander in competition, typically at Henley or as a member of the Great Britain team, while the Full Member Blazer, as its name implies, may only be worn by Full Members.
Our suppliers, Walters and Co. of Oxford, and Rowing Blazers Ltd. provide different, but complimentary, styles of blazer at a range of prices to suit Members’ requirements.
Walters & Co, Oxford, are a long-established outfitters and university wear specialist, offering three grades of tailor-finished blazers at competitive prices, representing excellent value for money. Walters and Co. offer three grades of fabric: Polyester/wool, pure wool (flannel) and fine wool, and Members may be measured at their premises in Oxford or by collective arrangement at Leander. In the first instance Members are invited to make contact with the Group Managing Director, Adrian Palfreyman, who will personally handle your enquiry.

Rowing Blazers Ltd was founded by Leander member Jack Carlson, author of the acclaimed Rowing Blazers book. His new company produces handcrafted blazers to a very high standard of finish, using the highest quality materials and the most traditional techniques. Rowing Blazers offers Leander blazers in both cotton and year-round wool flannel, and produce the full shield badge in hand-embroidered gold-wire bullion.
