Head of the CharlesJP Crickets focuses on celebrating both the love of sport and the love of style and luxury. That’s why we’re excited to head to Cambridge, Mass. this weekend for the 50th annual Head Of The Charles Regatta®.

Can anything beat crisp air, the crunch of fall leaves under our JP Crickets and the beauty of Harvard University? As the sun glistens on the Charles River, we’ll be cheering on the rowing athletes with thousands of other fans from all over the world and many from the 70 universities we make high-quality loafers for.US Rowing Sponsor

USA SlipperWe’re proud to sponsor the U.S. Rowing Association, and can’t wait to see the unique rowing blazers that the rowers, parents and alumni will be wearing. Not to mention the school colors of the uniforms on the athletes as they race to the finish line. A sure favorite will be the infamous unis the Mens’ Brown University team dons every year in honor of Breast Cancer month.

Snag your mom’s favorite cashmere sweater, a tweed blazer from dad’s closet, sunglasses, a scarf and our JP Crickets loafers! It’s a timeless Boston look that will carry you from Harvard Square to the Charles River, and ensure you chirp your colors for your University rowing team.rowing blazers

Be sure to watch for author, Jack Carlson, (Georgetown) who will be rowing on Sunday in one of the Champ8 boats. Mr. Carlson recently published an exciting book called ROWING BLAZERS that looks at the authentic striped, piped, trimmed, and badged blazers that are still worn by oarsmen and women around the world today.

You can meet Mr. Carlson, and our favorite, famed photographer, F.E. Castleberry this weekend at the Head of the Charles at the regatta’s exhibition pop-up near the finish line at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday October 18 and 10:00 a.m. on Sunday October 19!
