A well-fitting blazer works just as well on a normal weekday as it does on special occasions. Many men wish they could wear a blazer much more often than they currently do but are unsure how to create a more relaxed look and to avoid looking overdressed. Many are also under the impression that it is difficult to find a blazer that fits properly. But a little basic knowledge of how to find the right size and style of blazer makes this process relatively straightforward. Any man can easily make blazers an integral part of their everyday style if they wish. The key is to make sure you are comfortable with what you wear, and don’t let others dictate what is 'your style'.
Smaller tailoring adjustments, such as shortening of the sleeves, can considerably improve the fit of your blazer and are more than worth any extra cost. Naturally, having the right fit will vastly improve how the blazer feels, making you more likely to want to wear it. Every man should have a dark-blue blazer hanging in their wardrobe, which can be paired with a denim or Oxford shirt for a more casual look. Thicker fabrics such as tweed, flannel, cotton and linen also make for more casual blazers.
