Great news for bargain-hunters: Crewroom is set to hold a series of “sample sales” offering top-quality sportswear garments at knock-down prices.
Ahead of the BNY Mellon Boat Race and The Newton Women’s Boat Race on April 11, Crewroom has been named as the Official Performance Wear Partner of both races, and we have launched a new retail range of branded technical clothing to support the events.
News of our new role broke on the Boat Races’ official website here and you can find full details of our new kit range at ww.crewroom.co.uk.
Before those events, others are planned, notably the Women’s Head of the River (Saturday March 14), Schools Head (Monday 16th) and Men’s Head (Sunday March 29).
And linked to those, we’ll be running snap sales featuring a wide range of pre-production samples.
“Designers have to get through lots of sizing sets to get to the final product, so we have many unique pieces on offer. Some don't even make it to market, but they are all quality items, and will be going at cost price, ie a fraction of the normal price,” said Crewroom’s design team.
Keep a look out on social media for details of these sales. Follow us on Facebook here and on Twitter @Crewroom.
Because our Hub headquarters is a stone’s throw from Putney Pier, where all the races end, we look forward to welcoming a warm hand of hospitality to crews from around the world as the season’s winter races get underway.
Many international crews will be competing wearing the award-winning kit produced by our friends and partners in sunny California, JL Design.
They produce top-flight technical, quality rowing kit for rowers worldwide, including unisuits, splash jackets, tech tops and, one of our favourites, the Turtleshell.
JL manufacture fully bespoke team wear and Crewroom, as their UK distributor, work with many British clubs, including Vesta RC, Thames RC, and Durham University Boat Club.
