Custom Blazers and Sports Jackets
There is nothing more versatile and practical than a sport jacket or blazer or a well stitched custom sport coat. Although these two terms are often used to describe the same item of clothing, the two jackets are quite different. Blazers and sport jackets are not designed with the necessity to wear them with matching trousers, but the fabric and the buttons will define whether a jacket is a blazer or a sports jacket (or sports coat as it is sometimes called).
The difference between a blazer and a sport jacket is most easily determined by the fabric that is used to make the jacket. A blazer is usually made with a fabric in one solid color. The most common color for custom blazers and custom sports coats is navy and black. The exception to this rule is the classic striped British boating blazer and striped blazers worn by private schools and cricket clubs. Blazers feature metal buttons made from brass or silver and these blazer buttons usually feature the crest or the symbol of a school, army regiment, navy fleet, or private club.
A sport jacket, on the other hand is far less formal. Sport jackets are made with textured fabrics (like Harris Tweed) as well as smooth finished fabrics. Sport jackets are usually made with check patterns, hounds-tooth, herringbone, and many other designs. Dormeuil, for example, make over 300 different designs, just for sport jackets.
A custom made blazer and/or custom sports jacket is a staple in every man’s wardrobe. A typical custom blazer in New York is the perfect solution for a casual Friday at the office, a surprise brunch at a nice eatery on Sunday, or a quick trip out of town.
