The 27 Best Men's Blazers to Spruce Up Your Wardrobe in 2023
Blazer: What exactly is a blazer? Well, a blazer is a type of jacket that closely resembles a suit in terms of its overall design, but is less traditionally formal. Blazers are the middle ground so to speak between sports coats and suit jackets as they are super casual, but they aren’t exactly a suit jacket that you would wear if you were a part of a wedding party. Blazers tend to have a tailored fit with more formal garments, and often have naval style features to reflect their boating club origin.
Sports Coat: What is a sports coat? A sports coat is the most casual of the three, and is also referred to as a casual lounge jacket. Sports coats can be worn on their own or with matching trousers, but the ability to wear them without matching trousers is what adds to their casual, more free flowing appeal and appearance.
Suit Jacket: A suit jacket is by far the most “formal” of the three, and is viewed as a classic menswear item. Suit jackets are part of a suit, and are also referred to as lounge jackets, lounge coats, or suit coats. Matching trousers tend to accompany suit jackets, and as we said earlier, a suit jacket/suit would be something that you might wear to a very formal occasion or upscale event.
What to Consider When Buying a Blazer
As with all other clothing items, you’ll want to take into consideration your personal preferences and reasons for wanting to purchase a blazer such as whether or not the blazer is for work, or for an upscale event you are planning to go to. You’ll also want to factor in things such as the make, material, and model of the blazer, and take note of the wash requirements. Most blazers will require you to make a trip to the cleaners as they cannot be put in the washer and dryer without potentially being ruined.
And as always, you’ll want to consider your budget and what you are looking to spend. While you don’t necessarily have to shell out hundreds of dollars to buy the most expensive blazer you can find, you also have to understand that a cheaper purchase might mean that it’s only going to last you a select amount of time. So depending on what you are looking for, it might be worth the investment if you are searching for a blazer that is going to last you a long time.
Now that you’ve got a general idea of what to look for when blazer shopping, let’s get into our suggestions. We’ve put together a list of 27 different blazers to get you started on your shopping journey. Take a look below.
