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.
