The Blue Blazer Perfected
Confession time. As much as we’ve worked to bring innovation to the way men get clothes, we’re still traditionalists. We believe in the classics like the sharply tailored suit and the expertly turned out tuxedo. But sometimes the classics can use a little updating.
The Blue Blazer Reimagined
Of course, when people try updating a classic they often ruin it. But one proven method for a successful re-imagining of a classic is to mash up two classics. What happens when you take the New Testament of the bible and mash it up with sci-fi action flicks? You get The Terminator.
So when we set out to create the quintessential blazer, we followed this tried and true path. We took our favorite elements from the classic navy blue blazer and the more relaxed characteristics of an old-school sport jacket and mashed them up. The result is the Navy Blue Hopsack Blazer, the first blazer we’ve ever made to the standards of our Savoy Line of made-to-measure garments. Here’s how we did it.
How to Wear The New Blue Blazer
What do you get when you mash up these two classics? Something incredibly wearable. So how do you wear this blue blazer? To be frank, you pretty much can’t screw this one up. We paired it with a pair of white chinos and a sport shirt for a look that is either weekday casual and weekend dressy, depending on your mood. You can reimagine it many ways. Here are some of our favorites:
with a lightweight crew neck sweater and jeans for those transitional days of spring,
with a light blue gingham dress shirt and breathable dress slacks for summer, or
with golden brown corduroys and a white, button-down oxford shirt as the first cool breezes of fall come in.
With all of the possibilities for work and play, the biggest challenge won’t be how to wear this jacket, but how to give it a break.
