Lesson of the day: Blazers

Updated: Oct 30, 2018

A suit jacket can be worn as a sport coat, but it is neither a blazer nor sport coat.

Wait what?

That was my reaction.

What is a blazer?

A blazer ONLY comes in navy and black featuring naval metal buttons. See Ralph Lauren example:

Many in the industry still consider any jacket with buttons and pointed collar a blazer, but that's not the case.

Any jacket that does not have matching pants is consider a sport coat.

A matching pair of pants with a jacket is called a suit.

Are you less confused now?
