Blazing Trails

9th August 2012 | Posted in Mens
The blazer-It’s one of the most versatile pieces of clothing going-and you really shouldn’t be without one in your wardrobe. As smart begins to blend with casual, we show you just a few of the many ways to wear blazers-from the traditional lord of the manor look, to the look of pure sartorial genius. Look one: The sartorially Savvy High Street Gent

Look one: The Sartorially Savvy Gent

If you’re a blazer virgin and looking at this thinking: ‘No chance I’d be seen dead in that’, then this first look should be your first port of call. It relies on the contrast in texture to be properly pulled off- the difference between the denim on the Nudie jeans and the Farah woolen blazer make sure that you stand out; but the subtle colour match with the grey fade in the denim ensures that it’s for all the right reasons. Wear the blazer open and layer with a t-shirt for the ultimate casual lad about town look, or go a touch smarter by buttoning up and wearing a crisp button down collar shirt.

Look two: If looks could kill…

If looks could kill-well, you’d be in a very empty room wearing this blazer from Pretty Green. Perfectly cut in velvet, with a silk lapel and full Pretty Green paisley lining, this blazer is the ultimate go-to for any dress occasion. Wear with dark chinos or trousers for a smarter look, or link it up with a brighter colour like we have to make even more of a statement in these Farah Chinos. Keep the shirt plain underneath and the let the details of the blazer do all the talking for you; try a Dress Scarf to give your look a touch of pomp- and you’re ready to raise some pulses.

Whiskey at the Hunting Lodge

Ok, so maybe you won’t be using this outfit for reclining with a drink or two in a room full of mounted animal heads, but you can use it for pretty much anything: from a trip down the local to dinner with the Mrs. The check in this Ted Baker tweed blazer oozes country sophistication, whilst the suede shoulder patches and lapel details provide you with the very best in classic, timeless style. We think this blazer looks best with these Paul Smith Classic Fit Cords. They provide the ultimate blend of material to pull this look off. All that’s missing is a check shirt, woolen tie and classic brogues. Suits you sir. Ryan J Gray
