Blazer History

A savvy row buying guide.

There appear to be 2 competing theories to explain the origin of the blazer. The earliest on record (1825) is that the scarlet red jackets worn by The Lady Margaret Boat Club (the rowing club of St. Johns College, Cambridge) were seen to 'set the water ablaze'.

Alternatively...in 1837 the Commander of the frigate H.M.S. Blazer was told that England’s young queen, Victoria, would soon inspect his ship. He took one look at the unsightly condition of his crew’s dress and decreed that they would get new uniforms. He decided on a short jacket with Brass Royal Navy buttons. There is a disagreement as to the colour of those first Blazers. In one account the jackets were striped navy and white, but another reports solid navy. In either case, Victoria was so favourably impressed she required all sailors to be in similar uniform.
