Blazers - Traditional, Practical and Stylish Jackets for All Ages

Blazers are a type of jacket that is commonly used for school uniforms. They are like a suit jacket but have patch pockets and metal buttons on the shaft. This is the best way to make these badges to show all the details. They have to be handcrafted by merchants who know their work. Be it a special regiment these can be made, all you need is a picture and template and a keen eye for detail.

This is when the hard work to make your regimental insignia begins. Sent to different departments, from the wire maker to the padder, quality control, and packaging. Quality control is what ensures that the badge is flawless. So the finished item is perfect in every way. Then to be sewn on your jacket by you to show your military support or two, tell people you were in that regiment.

Make sure you are picking the one that enhances your skin tone. While cotton blazers go with many styles, they look perfect with sneakers, t-shirts, chinos, and jeans.

While wool blended ones seem to be too heavy for summer winds, they are a gem for other seasons. When buying a wool blazer for men, try clinging to navy and grey shades to enhance versatility and longevity. Be sure before purchasing that the cut and quality of your chosen piece is right. Once you have your ideal ensemble, you can pair it with jeans or chinos and sneakers or boots for a smart casual look.

Blazers are usually sturdy and come in a wide variety of colors. They are often a uniform item, for airlines, security, sports clubs, and the famous traditional English school uniform. They have a history of use in sports, particularly rowing, which is one explanation for their origin. The Cambridge University team is said to have worn red jackets on their rowers, making them appear "on fire" in the water. Another nautical explanation is that the name comes from the captain of the ship HMS Blazer having his crew wear simple jackets to look elegant for a visit from the Queen. He arranged short jackets with brass buttons, probably in navy blue, although historians argue so. Some simply feel that the name comes from the practice of stamping a coat of arms or logo on the chest of the jacket, especially in the case of schools or rowing clubs. The types of insignia sewn to the jacket traditionally denote standing; a different color or style for junior students, senior students, prefects, etc.

Cheap blazers are still in use and enjoyed a brief revival recently. Mainly teenage alternative fashion adopted the blazer due to a mix of retro, smart/casual, and low price. Easy and inexpensive to find and buy, the blazer is durable and can be attached with stitched badges and patches. The mix of smart and casual makes them a popular choice for any age group, resulting in a more expensive brand of high-quality blazers available.
