Rowing Blazers has released four rugby shirts in aid of the Australian wildfires, developing an initiative that sees 100% of the proceeds go towards Australia‘s largest wildlife rescue organization, WIRES.
In a press release, the New York-based imprint stated, “We’ve been devastated by the news of the Australian wildfires and the destruction that it has done to the region and to the wildlife. We want to do our part to support Australia and we want your help.”
As a result, Rowing Blazers looks to its Ivy League-inspired aesthetic and authentically Australian motifs for its charitable collection. Its offerings include the Australian Rugby League Heavyweight Rugby — a green jersey sporting inverted yellow chevrons — as well as the Australia 1905 Authentic Heavyweight Rugby, which combined blue and brown horizontal stripes with white collar, white buttons, and an embroidered white Kangaroo motif.
Rounding out the collection is the Australia 1961 Authentic Heavyweight Rugby — a bright gold piece sporting Australia’s Rugby World Cup badge from 1961 — and finally, the Australia 1908 Authentic Heavyweight Rugby, which combines its light blue jersey base with the Waratah flower patch.
All four pieces are available via Rowing Blazers’ website and are priced at $195 USD each. Take a closer look above.
