The Summer Sport Coat + Blazer
With the crazy pollen outside choking us to death, going outside to shop makes it soooooo difficult. But that didn't stop us because this week we HAD to pick up these items that will be the LOOK of the Spring/Summer season. We all know the warm weather is here so it’s time to bring out a coat that’s actually appropriate to wear this SS17 season. Whether you have it hiding in the back of your closet, or have to schedule a shopping appointment asap, this layering piece is the item you will need!!
Spring/Summer sport coats are lightweight, unlined, unstructured jackets with minimal shoulder padding. We know you’re all probably thinking we’re crazy for even considering wearing a coat as the weather is increasing outside, but it doesn't feel like a legit coat. Dope, Right? This airy jacket can create that classic casual style when paired with a blue jean and sneaker, or it can give you that relaxed business look you've been searching for by pairing with chinos and your favorite loafer.
What a lot of guys don’t know is that traditionally a sport coat (or “blazer”) was meant as a casual item. We understand that most guys see a sport coat and think it’s natural to associate any jacket with buttons in the front and vents in the back to be more dressed up. Honestly, truly… it kinda is, but please don’t let that scare or intimidate you. Instead use it to your advantage. Think of it as just another layer to your ensemble, its basically like a light jacket you’d normally wear when its warmer outside.
Whether it's casual summer get-togethers, mid-day cocktail parties, and of course outdoor weekend brunches with endless mimosas the summer sport coat will definitely come in handy.
