Its starting to feel a lot like Christmas! Temperatures have dropped in the valley, so its time to break out the tweeds, flannels and wool! I feel like this fit works with the autumn like scene behind with the fallen leaves and bare trees..This tweed blazer has been one of my winter staples here the last couple years.. warm, with lightly padded shoulders and its coffee brown color, it works with a myriad of looks..I also am a fan of patch pockets on blazers and sports coats because it differentiates itself from its cursed sartorial cousin, the orphaned jacket..back in the early 2010′s, there was a movement on buying suits as separates and while I believe that’s useful, what was wrong was the push to wear a suit jacket as a separate. This can be done if its the right jacket. Softer shoulders, patch pockets, texture or louder pattern denotes a jacket that can be worn as a blazer in my book. A solid color suit with a structured shoulder and flap pockets, does not work most of the time in comparison. This blazer I have on is the former and could be worn like I am now or with jeans if I choose to. The is an older one from brooks brothers I purchased from an outlet over 15 years ago. 100% lana wool that is self tipped. The pants are from Brioni and the suede chukkas are from Santoni…Overall a nice warm fit for the valley..what do you think?
