Men’s blazers have been around for a long time, but they haven’t changed much. The best blazers are classic and versatile, so you can wear them with anything from jeans to suit pants. They work well with button-down shirts and other formal clothes as well because of their slim fit and drapey design.
If you’re looking for a roomy fit, size up. If you want a tight and streamlined look, size down.
- 1) Choose your size based on how much room you want in the jacket (see below).
- 2) Measure yourself from your shoulder to the bottom of your bust and add 1 inch to this measurement as well as another 1-2 inches depending on how much structure/stiffness is desired.*
Fit and cut
The blazer should fit well, with a tailored cut that accentuates your body’s natural curves and shapes. It should be in good condition: no rips or tears, no stains or wrinkles. And it should be made of quality materials—not too thin and not too thick; not too soft (and thus prone to pilling) nor coarsely woven; not thin enough for warmth but strong enough to withstand wear and tear over time.
In short: if the blazer isn’t versatile enough for you to wear it every day during winter months (or even summer), then don’t buy it!
What to look for
When you’re shopping for a blazer, it’s important to keep in mind the following things:
- The fit. Make sure the jacket fits you well and is flattering. A good fit will make you feel more confident about yourself, which is always good!
- The color(s). If possible, try on several different colors to see which one looks best on your body type and style preferences. You may be able to find some amazing deals at local thrift stores!
What to avoid
If you’re unsure of your size, we’ve got some helpful tips to help you find the right fit.
- Don’t buy a blazer that is too big. A blazer should fit snugly at the waist and shoulders, but not tight enough to be uncomfortable. A large size will likely have extra material in the body (the part closest to your body) that makes it look like there’s more room than there actually is. This can cause length problems—you may find yourself wearing some portion of your jacket over the top of your pants instead of letting it hang freely down below them!
- Don’t buy a blazer that is too small. There shouldn’t be any gaps between buttons or folds in fabric when buttoned up; if there are any gaps or wrinkles around where buttons meet lapel then this means one thing: You need more room! Also make sure no visible seams show through either side seam as well as sleeve cuffs/sleeves etc., otherwise this could lead onto another problem…
