The humble blazer is surely one of the jackets every guy should have in his wardrobe — to say the very least. The best blazers combine aspects that are essential in most pieces of menswear nowadays, from versatile fabric to an excellent fit and quality materials. That’s the case with our favorite picks below, which can be fine-tuned and styled just about any way you please for the fall season ahead (and several seasons beyond that).
Whether your weapon of choice is a classic navy blazer in year-round wool or a lightweight blazer in a bright color made from sustainable materials, there’s a blazer on this list for you. Men’s blazers should be worn however you feel like — but mostly with classic, everyday staples like a white Oxford, tan chinos and brown leather brogues. Heck, the right blazer can — and should — be layered over a slub T-shirt and worn with your favorite pair of dark denim, plus canvas high-top sneakers.
That’s the sort of versatility you’re getting when you invest in the best. All we know is this: When you start with a great blazer, the styling potential is nearly limitless — trust us, you’ll start to believe it when it works for you.
