The blazer, a tailored jacket without matching pants, has become a key wardrobe staple for the modern American man. It’s coveted for its versatility – the fact that it looks just at home in the office as it does out on the town.
The exact story behind the blazer is, as with most items of clothing, debatable. Some say it first appeared on the royal vessel H.M.S Blazer, after an impending visit from Queen Victoria prompted the commander to order a new uniform for his men, consisting of a double breasted jacket with Royal Navy brass buttons. These were named blazers, after the ship.
Another theory is that the blazer came from the Lady Margaret Boat Club of Cambridge University, members of which wore scarlet flannel jackets, nicknamed blazers because they were so bright. Whatever the true story is behind them, blazers have seriously blazed a trail for men’s fashion all over the globe. How you choose to wear your blazer is up to you, of course. One man’s work blazer is another man’s weekend wear.
