The Rupert and Buckley Clothing Co team had the pleasure of attending the Presidents Challenge on Thursday, November 9th at the Guildhall in London.
The evening had a super atmosphere and the venue lent itself perfectly to the event and to the first reveal of the Rupert and Buckley Clothing Co Crew Leisurewear.
The Presidents Challenge is where the Presidents of last season’s losing club issue the challenge of the new season’s race to the opposing club. Katherine Erickson, President of Oxford University Women’s Boat Club challenged her counterpart, Daphne Martschenko, who duly accepted. Hugo Ramambason, of Cambridge, challenged Iain Mandale of Oxford University Men’s Boat Club, the challenge was accepted.
The event was compered by BBC’s Andrew Cotter and there were questions and answers of former Blues to give their take on The Boat Race.
The event was attended by current crews, The Boat Race Partners, including Chapel Down, Mizuno, and Professional Sports Group.
The exciting reveal of the crew leisurewear at the event was also a teaser for the Rupert and Buckley Clothing Co & The Boat Race retail range which will be available from early 2018. Keep your eyes peeled on our blog for more news on this and other projects Rupert and Buckley have in the pipeline!
