In Detail: The Oliver Brown Single-Breasted Blazer
05 Apr 2016
The classic navy blazer is easily one of the most versatile items in a gent's wardrobe. With spring's glorious arrival you'll undoubtedly find reason to sport one, whether you're dressing it up with a crisp white shirt, a pocket square and non-matching trousers, or pairing it with neutral-toned chinos (the fail-safe option for that tricky 'smart-casual' dress code). So what makes a jacket a blazer? It's simple: it's a standalone style that doesn't come with matching trousers. This is what gives the blazer its slightly more casual feel, giving you freedom to show a little more flair as you style it with different trousers, shirts, knitwear and even denim. Although the blazer's original purpose was to show allegiance to a sporting club - or many years ago as a member of the Navy - the blazer nowadays is simply a timeless and stylish essential. Our navy single-breasted blazer is tailored from the traditional Oliver Brown block for a classic-fitted cut that's flattering and comfortable. It's made here in the UK from 100% wool worsted barathea sourced from a mill in Huddersfield famed for its history and specialisation in this cloth. As ever, we pay attention to the detail to ensure the design is a cut above: you'll find a contrast sky blue lining that provides a subtle flash of colour; working cuffs; striking gilt buttons and pick-stitching on the lapels. And of course, you can choose from a regular or long fitting to ensure the correct length. We just couldn't imagine the warmer months without one! How do you wear yours?
