We all know the invaluable contribution the sport coat has made on the men’s fashion scene. It’s versatility, sartorial sophistication, and ease of wear make it a fundamental necessity in any respectable man’s closet. Wear it to the office or to the cottage, the sport coat is undoubtably a jack of all trades.
In recent seasons we’ve seen a growing trend in this market with the arrival of the knit or jersey style blazers. These jackets are incredible because they offer the immaculate finish of a great, well-tailored sport coat, while feeling like you’re wearing your favourite sweatshirt. Like a sweatshirt, they are great for travel, last forever and are ideal for layering. However what they are not is something only for frat boys or varsity athletes. The jersey blazer, when worn appropriately, can be ideal for the 20 year old or the 50 year old and we’re here to prove it.
