Rowing Blazers’ Latest Collaboration May Have Just Changed My Mind About Nantucket Red

Ah, Nantucket Red. Developed back in the 1960s by Philip C. Murray of Murray’s Toggery Shop on Nantucket Island, it’s become the official color of summertime prepsters everywhere. No, really—it was even included in The Official Preppy Handbook, the essential, tongue-in-cheek guide to ’80s prep ascendency. Because of that lineage, you might have some feelings about the salmony shade of faded red. But whether they’re positive (you’ve probably spent time on a sailboat) or negative (you’ve probably spent time with obnoxious frat bros), Rowing Blazers’ new collab with Murray’s is here to make you rethink them.

The New York-based brand just teamed up with the New England outfitter on a collection of seven pieces: two rugby shirts, two hats, a bag, a tee, and a pair of shorts. Of those seven, a whopping five make use of Nantucket Red. But instead of leaning right into the old-school feel, they liven it up. The bucket hat is the kind of thing you might find on a downtown cool kid. And those elastic-waistband shorts? Throw ’em on with a camp-collar shirt and you could easily find yourself in sleazy territory. In other words, you can make of them what you will. And if Reds just ain’t your thing, well, the rugbies come in a less historically loaded navy and white. Take your pick.

Check out the entire collection, which is available now, right here.
