How to choose the perfect blazer

The blazer’s origins lie in the 18th century with The Royal Navy but has, overtime, been adopted by the contemporary fashion world to become a classic, men’s wardrobe staple. It's the attire that looks fashionable without appearing too formal or flashy. With a style between the suit and the sport coat, the blazer is one of the most versatile pieces that should be a part of every gentleman’s wardrobe.

A good blazer is an essential investment that should be chosen with great care and consideration, which is why we created this useful guide to help you select your perfect jacket.

 

3 essentials that defines a perfect blazer

 

  • 1. The Cremieux Shoulder

The shoulder shape is our most important detail and is perfectly adapted to the silhouette. Unconstructed and natural, this shape offers both comfort and style.

  • 2. The Length

The blazer
When standing straight, the bottom of the jacket should always touch the base of your palm.

The Sleeve
1 centimeter of shirt cuff to show is usually the best length.
The Expert Tip: Measure your shirt before wearing to make sure the fit will be perfect.

 

  • 3. How many buttons?

We advise you to keep it simple with 2 or 2.5 buttons to maintain a modern and flattering fit. This means you will only see the two lower positioned buttons, the top one will remain invisible and the button-hole will pop up as a nice "Tailor" detail.
