Beginning in August, a certain Glee-inspired blazer is doing a lot more than adding flare to your autumn wardrobe. Canadian Design Duo Smythe recently launched The Warbler Tribute Blazer to donate a portion of proceeds to anti-bullying programs. Programs within Canada and the U.S. will benefit from the sales throughout Fall.
The blazer, retailing at $695 is now available for purchase through a number of select retailers in North America, including Holt Renfrew and Ron Herman, and online through eLUXE and Singer 22 for our Internet-savvy readers! If you’re looking to give back with your fall and winter purchases this year, you can’t go wrong with The Warbler Blazer Tribute, perfect for the office or a casual Saturday. The schoolboy blazer accented with black stripes features three-quarter length sleeves and preppy brass buttons giving a playful take on a traditional essential. Even Kelly Osbourne is rocking the latest Warbler blazer posting on her personal Instagram “Support @smythejackets and @itgetsbetter. All proceeds from my jacket go to anti-bullying.”
“We designed this special-edition blazer as a tribute to all those who fight against ignorance and intolerance,” says Andrea Lenczner and Christine Smythe, co-founders of Smythe. “We were inspired by Christine’s brother, Thomas Smythe, who produced the It Gets Better Campaign in Canada last year. We want to use the Smythe platform to lend our support by donating a portion of the proceeds from the sales of each blazer to anti-bullying organizations.”
Smythe has created essential wardrobe pieces that are both modern and emotional. The contemporary, flawlessly tailored jackets and coats feature nostalgic colors, textures and prints that are distinct in their traditional menswear tailoring details. Artful tailoring and sartorial fit made Smythe an instant success when the label launched in 2004. Smythe’s made-in-Canada jackets and coats are iconic silhouettes that are novel yet versatile.
