The Gentleman’s Guide To The Blazer
Your definitive guide to menswear’s perennially stylish hero piece: the blazer. We’re covering everything from must-have fabrics to how to style this must-have piece.
The Linen Blazer
The solution to lightweight layering for the new season is undoubtedly the linen blazer. A truly timeless take on the classic wool version for winter, this is the perfect piece to wear all summer long, from spectator sports to weekday meetings. Wear with a classic Oxford or linen shirt and your favourite pair of chinos for an impeccable look.
The Cotton Blazer
If you’re not quite ready to think ahead to summer, update your current wardrobe with a classic cotton blazer. Structured in silhouette and timeless in style, it makes for the perfect hybrid piece to wear for smart casual occasions, paired with everything from a laid-back sweatshirt or T-shirt to a formal shirt and tailored trousers.
The Jersey Blazer
An informal occasion is no excuse to let your style go. Instead, keep things sharp and stylish with a jersey blazer. Playing into the hands of the trend for a more laid-back silhouette with a deconstructed style, jersey blazers are a simple – but incredibly effective – way to instantly sharpen your look.
The Wool Blazer
With unpredictable weather patterns being very much the norm these days, it pays to always be prepared. A timeless wool blazer is a true gentleman’s staple, looking sharp in all settings from winter weddings to job interviews and first dates. Layer up with a tailored overcoat, a classic piece of knitwear and your favourite tailored trousers for an undeniably gentlemanly outfit.
