Mens Blazer Tips For This Fall

The autumn is a great time for fashion because we can wear more than we do during the summer. That means scarves, jackets, and overcoats –layers of possibility. Perhaps I’m most excited about gqlondon07-300x207again wearing mens blazers. This season there are a lot of new ones, whether you’re wearing them with men designer suits or with jeans and a t-shirt.

First off, add a pocket square to your collection. Think silk and in bold colors or classic. One of each maybe.

Last year sports coats were all grey herringbone; this year they’re brighter and more colorful.

The double breasted jacket is back big time this year as a nod to ’70s fashion. You should be aware of a sharper peak, a wider lapel, a more tailored fit–high shoulders and slimmer waist– and a little shorter in length than its forerunners.

Pair it with a brightly colored shirt and a plaid tie and feel like the best dressed man in the room. A fine-gauge turtleneck is also a fine pairing.

When it comes to an overcoat, don’t overdo it –if you’re wearing a double-breasted below, go single-breasted on top. The car coat, or a light camel coat is a great addition.
