The original Explorers Club Watch Cap. Available only in classic red, featuring our waving flag embroidery.
You've seen this one many times before. The watch cap, typically knitted in this bright red color, has become a true symbol of nautical exploration. It's been worn on expeditions all over the globe, from Cousteau's undersea odysseys, to Heyerdahl's oceanic crossings, to Cameron's Challenger Deep dive into the Marianas Trench.
Today, The Explorers Club continues this tradition. Members proudly don these caps in the field, at headquarters, and everywhere in between. Order your own piece of exploration history.
Made in Normandy, France, in collaboration with Saint James, nautical supplier established in the 11th century. One size fits all. Please note this is a snug, slightly shallower fit -- just like it's always been. Machine wash, wool cycle. Reduced spin. Do not soak.
Our Rugby Shirts are inspired by the ones that rock climbers and mountaineers used in the 1970s, prior to the sport’s popularity. Climbers would often use army surplus and thrift stores to supply expeditions.
The most iconic garment of this era was the Rugby Shirt. Made from a rugged, sturdy cotton, these classic, long-sleeved shirts protected climbers from the elements. Its collar specifically provided much-needed protection from metal climbing gear such as clamps, allowing them to rest more comfortably on the neck.
This short sleeve rugby shirt features 100% heavyweight cotton, rubber buttons, and a relaxed fit, prominent in early, 1970s samples. A discreet Explorers Club embroidery is placed on the left arm, for your expedition team to notice when summiting El Capitan.
Limited supply. Made in Canada, in collaboration with Barbarian Sportswear. Barbarian, founded in 1981, manufactures garments and knits their own locally. Barbarian uses dozens of suppliers from all over North America, including the use of the world’s highest grade cotton grown in the US.
