Suit Jackets vs. Blazers vs. Sport Coats

April 22nd, 2016

    A suit jacket is part of a complete suit, so pair the jacket and pants together. These two items should be the same color and fabric. I would not recommend wearing the suit jacket separately too often; the added wear will fade the garment faster than the pants, and then your suit will no longer match.


    A blazer is solid in color with metal buttons typically. This was a favorite of the British Navy in the early 19th century, so it is most commonly associated with the navy color. This versatile piece can be dressed up with chinos or khakis or dressed down with jeans for more informal events.


    A sport coat is the most casual, as the original intent of this jacket back in the 1920’s was to be worn during outdoor activities. This is usually patterned or colored and can be made of varying fabrics and weights. This goes best with jeans, but any material (like corduroy or flannel) also works – just as long as it doesn’t too closely resemble the jacket’s material.

    James Bond in Casino Royale was the inspiration behind one of our client’s wedding look. For his big day, Rakesh wanted the same peak lapel tuxedo and shirt worn by Daniel Craig in the movie, and we brought his vision to life. We finished his ensemble with a formal bowtie and white suspenders, all custom-made. Congrats, Rakesh!
