Blazers or jackets?

Posted on

There is always a goods reason why we should wear a blazer and for this coming season the designers have proposed really nice blazers.

A blazer is a type of jacket. The term blazer occasionally is synonymous with boating jacket and sports jacket, two different garments. A blazer resembles a suit coat cut more casually — sometimes with flap-less patch pockets and metal buttons. A blazer’s cloth is usually durable (14oz.), because it is an outdoor sports jacket. A blazer is generally distinguished from a sport jacket as a more formal garment and tailored from solid color fabrics. Blazers are often made with naval-style metal buttons, reflecting their historic boating club association, but this is not a defining feature. (Source Wikipedia).

Talking about blazers a special mention goes to Giorgio Armani and Chanel: their blazers are always a masterpiece and a source of inspiration for many other designers.
