If you’re busy designing clothes all day, it can be hard to keep up your nautical cred. Which is why it pays to make friends with a nature writer or two.

The fine folks at Rogues Gallery have brought the British writer Philip Hoare on as their “foreign correspondent,” stocked his most recent tome on whales and printed a set of whale-themed tees to match the occasion.

By all accounts, it’s quite a book and bringing him in to talk is the kind of polymath move that got Opening Ceremony where it is. We just hope Hoare doesn’t tempt any impressionable youths into the whaling life.
