Collier & Robinson was formed in 2002, by partners Mark Shemilt and Kristie Robinson, primarily to produce club blazers for visiting rowing crews to Henley-on-Thames, the undisputed home of British Rowing. The rich pageantry of the Henley Royal Regatta means that not only the rowing crews themselves, but also the spectators and former oarsmen had a need for locally produced, hand-made blazers, ties and flannels.
Since then our clientele has increased to include vintage car clubs, schools, traditional boating and gentlemen's clubs. Our blazers and accessories have been worn by 4 year old ring-bearers at family weddings to top sporting personalities launching their club's very unique Collier & Robinson blazer at The Royal Albert Hall. Most recently we have branched into exporting, customers include the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club.
We are a friendly company who take great pride in the fact that all of our blazers are still hand-made to a high quality in Henley-on-Thames using fabrics and trimmings from some of the top mills in England. Our design team, led by Kristie Robinson, are always ready to help you create your ultimate garment.

"The positive feedback we received on our blazers was exponential. We were by far the best dressed team at the regatta and reception. I cannot thank you enough for working with us on such sort notice and being so helpful. I will recommend Collier & Robinson to any teams I know that will be travelling to Henley next year."
