Who’s Wearing The Pants In This Regatta?


Women can now wear pants if they would like to when attending the Henley Royal Regatta. This is an English rowing competition that dates back to 1839 and is considered part of the English social season. Did you know there was such a season?

In the past, women in attendance could only wear dresses or skirts with a hemline below the knee. The organizers have changed the rules this year after a petition from a rower last year called the dress code “draconian.”

Men must still wear lounge suits, jackets or blazers. Women can now wear trousers, or pants, inside the Regatta Enclosure but some private clubs will still keep the dress or skirt dress code for women in place. Quite so!
