Fans of academic chic, rejoice: Two Penny Blue, a line of luxe, made-in-America blazers, launched today. Marie Whitney (otherwise known as Mrs. Theo Epstein) and Erin Gates (of “Elements of Style” fame) are behind the collection. For each limited-edition jacket sold (prices range from $275-$355), the company will donate a school uniform to a girl in Africa.

The spring lookbook was shot on the streets of Boston and stars local models Kacey Emmett and Olivia Culpo — the latter lady is now Miss U.S.A., of course:

The Two Penny Blue site also sells chunky baubles, bags, and colorful umbrellas.
