On the hit FOX series Glee, Chris Colfer plays openly gay high schooler Kurt Hummel, a talented singer and rising star who battles daily discrimination from his peers. Now, inspired by Kurt’s story, Canadian label Smythe (which makes some of Kate Middleton’s favorite jackets) has created a schoolboy-inspired blazer to benefit a number of anti-bullying organizations.
The Warbler Tribute Blazer, appropriately named after Glee‘s male a cappella group the Dalton Academy Warblers, features black and scarlet stripes, cropped sleeves and collegiate-cool brass buttons. And a portion of the $695 jacket’s proceeds will go towards anti-intolerance programs in both the USA and Canada, making it a smart investment in more ways than one.
It would seem that dedication to this cause runs in the family: Smythe co-founder Christie Smythe’s own brother, Thomas Smythe, is actually the producer behind Canada’s It Gets Better campaign. And in a probably-not-coincidental twist, Glee‘s Season 3 lead Warbler happens to be named Sebastian Smythe. We see what you did there, Gleeks!
