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 coatwhile 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.

Check out these styled looks for inspiration on how you can work this great piece into your daily wardrobe.

Fall ’14 Sport Coats For Every Occasion

Sasha Ferkul September 25, 2014

Sport coats that call to mind old-school vocabulary (think natty, snazzy and neat) are key to making fall looks modern. The appeal is obvious, blazers add ten style points to almost all attire. They also work on a technical level to layer, outsmart sloped shoulders or streamline the too-much-beer mid section. Add these accomplished pieces to every day, office and event; sport coats should be considered closet essentials.

Mens-Sport-Coats-Gotstyle-Style-Story-Casual

[Casual] Blue Industry Jersey Sport Coat

What it does: Store those parkas a little longer. This off-duty jacket is breathable and layers like a champ, working over light knits and long sleeved tees. The unstructured silhouette assures comfort and slims problem areas. The effortless fit works with a range of physiques- no alterations necessary.

What it says: The grab-and-go piece is an uncomplicated option for those new to the blazer. Styled over chinos, denim or even slick sweats, the jacket elevates simple separates to date night status.

Mens-Sport-Coats-Gotstyle-Style-Story-Social

[Social] Sand Plaid DB Sport Coat

What it does: DB is a bolder look, best attempted by the seasoned jacket man. A peaked lapel highlights shoulders, while the shorter cut offers a more modern appeal. Wear socially with denim to attract the right kind of attention.

What it says: The double-breasted blazer has surpassed trend; this is hardly your grandfather’s boxy jacket. When worn right, the look is high impact and informs everyone of complete sartorial confidence.

Mens-Sport-Coats-Gotstyle-Style-Story-Business

[Business] Haight & Ashbury Paddington Sport Coat

What it does: Give the closetful of suits a much-needed break. Haight & Ash’s blazer is office smart and the ideal mixing piece; just add narrow trousers, pressed shirting and polished Oxfords.

What it says: The on-duty look distinctly channels gentleman of old. Borrowed from the best, think updated Sinatra, Bogart and Grant, the slimming cut and contrast details make this jacket contemporary.

Mens-Sport-Coats-Gotstyle-Style-Story-1-Formal

[Formal] Marco Nils Tweed Sport Coat

What it does: An easy fix for the vertically challenged, this event-ready sport coat hits the right spot to lengthen and delivers the sought-after angular shape- thanks to a sharp, peaked lapel.

What it says: The jacket lends formal attire an extra shot of confidence- the contrast collar and understated motif leave dull looks in the dust. This is new, new way to dress up; style with flawlessly cut separates for an evening look that outshines traditional suiting.

Style Tips
Shorts-At-Every-Age-Main

If we had a penny for every time a man told us he is either “too young, too old, too tall or too small etc. etc. etc.” to rock a particular style or trend, then there would be ten Gotstyles. The truth of the matter is, age has nothing to do with it, instead personality and attitude are the deciding factors in adopting a trend- and making it your own. The key to embracing a specific style or article of clothing is understanding how it works for you. Shorts are a first-rate example; styling them in your 20s often differs from how 50 year olds choose to wear them.

In this GS how-to, we showcase our wide selection of summer shorts and how to pull them off at any age. Clean and classic or super fashion-forward, there is definitely a pair for everyone.
