Blazer (n.)

A type of jacket that is usually cut from solid, dark fabrics.

A blazer resembles a suit jacket but can be tailored to have less formal features such as patch pockets.

The quintessential blazer is a single-breasted navy blue blazer with brass buttons.

The blazer jacket has a long history and is closely associated with boating and rowing.

Today blazer jackets can be worn with a dress shirt and tie for a formal look or can be worn with a dress shirt with an unbuttoned collar for a casual look.

Blazer jackets are classic menswear and should be found in a gentleman’s wardrobe.
