It is rightfully regarded as one of the most important pieces in a man’s wardrobe any season, yet our picks will cover you smoothly from winter to spring.
The jacket of choice of the British Navy in the early nineteenth century, exploded onto the scene after British royalty gave their approval of the garment in 1837 and since then, after Italian fashion adored it big time, it rules.
No wonder today’s varieties of blazer have little to do with the original, old one which was strictly navy and double-breasted with 6 buttons. Spring’s 2017 blazer jacket highlights a man’s build, comes in a contemporary palette and is often mistaken to be one and the same as the sports jacket –it’s not.
Pair your blazer jacket with classic light-coloured chinos or well-fitted khakis –of course denim is an alternative and the fearless men amongst you can (and should) pair it with bright-coloured pants in green, red or orange or green.
As for the shoes, blazer is extremely versatile and so are it’s accessories. Pair it with white sneakers or leather brogues or derby. The blazer is the most important item in your wardrobe this season -period.
