Classic Essentials: The Cotton Blazer
- September 19, 2012 |
The reason why we love this blazer from LBM 1911: it’s the perfect, sturdy cotton jacket. It’s durable enough to wear it out to the bars without worry, but it fits well enough that you can wear it to work. It’s the Swiss Army Knife of blazers, the perfect-fitting blazer you’ve always wished for. Getting ready for a date? Grab the sport coat. Big job interview? Grab the sport coat. Meeting the girlfriend’s parents? Grab the sport coat. Work lunch with clients? You get it. It’s the blazer equivalent of your favorite pair of jeans—the ones that fit you perfectly and look good with everything.
Keep it classic with an oxford cloth button down, a knit tie, wool dress trousers and a pair of double monk strap shoes. Or, dress it up for a night out with your boys: just add a denim shirt, slim fit jeans and suede chukkas. Starting Friday, pick up this LBM 1911 Cotton Blazer for $499, regularly $598.
