Contemporary designer men’s blazers offer classic elegance and poise, a must for formal occasions of any description, and a lynchpin of smart casual ensembles. The blazer has arguably been the leading apparel item in the slow, quiet pushback against global fashion’s move towards casualwear. While retaining its traditional relevance, the outerwear staple has expanded its contingencies of use through recent seasons. Double-breasted blazers, long a key ornament in business casual attire, continue to find increasing opportunities in off-duty looks, cast in endlessly imaginative tailorings, with contemporary updates like oversizing and embellished accents signalling one particular avant-garde line of divergence. Preppy felted wool and cashmere variants take on the exclusivity-signalling aura of school and rowing club uniforms, with embroidered patches and technicolor trims offering colorful and confident contrast. Seersucker and tropical wool options, often adorned with pinstripes and delicately woven check patterns, wear into the warmest days of the year, with lighter pastel hues comfortably dissipating the weight of the sun and capturing the energy of the season.
