Wearing a Sport Coat or Blazer Indoors?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I have a few nice blazers and sport coats in my closet. I like wearing them but my typical routine is to wear it on the way in to the office and then take it off once I get to my desk. It then stays hanging in my closet for the rest of the day until I go home.

I find this to be the most comfortable way to go about my routines in the office but it seems like a shame to have a nice sport coat/blazer and only wearing it in my car and across the parking lot to and from the office.

Just wondering what others do...am I doing something wrong here?

I wear my blazer all day, unless it gets hot.

Unless you're cowboy I'm not sure about this. Your jacket shouldn't interfere with anything. You managed to drive with it on

I usually wear mine in the morning but after lunch our office tends to heat up more so it generally gets hung up for the afternoon.

I also take mine off at work all day; so I basically wear it to and from work.

I take mine off as soon as i get to my office...unless i have a meeting, my coat is hanging up.

Same routine here; 'on' to and from work, off at the office with exception of break periods (morning-lunch-afternoon) where I completely leave the building. I'll wear it to meetings ofcourse.

Mine I only wear in and out and for important meetings, I usualy keep it on my chair when working. I do not want to wrinkle it by wearing it while I sit at my desk and work.

Shouldn't you hang it up in your car as you drive, too? It's better for the coat that way. smile.gif

I take public transit, so I do wear mine during commute, but I hang it up during the day.

Yeah. Might as well just leave it hanging in your closet at home; definitely won't get any nasty wrinkles that way.

I think clothing is meant to be worn... It's best to get a blazer/work clothes in a fabric that doesn't wrinkle too much.

Still, I totally understand the sentiment of hanging clothing up while working!

But if you don't wear the jacket at work or in the car... why wear it? Oops, Sanguis beat me to it.

I actually agree with you, but the OP was wondering where else can he show off his beautiful clothes. I was sort of pointing out that nobody would notice the OP's jacket while he's driving, and he's making it wrinkly in the meantime, which is definitely not stylish.

LIke I said, I take the public transit, it's good for a few reasons:
1) People see me in my nice clothes;
2) I learn whether the armholes of my shirt and coat are high enough when I reach for the handhold above me.
3) I also learn just how hard-wearing my coat's fabric is.
4) Whether my coat stays in place after I'm through a crush of people tells me how well it's made to fit me. smile.gif

I also don't get ugly wrinkles on my back.

But yes, if I were to drive to work, I'd be wondering where to wear my coat, too.

Haha, my thoughts precisely about mass transit. I also take the subway to work. I like my high armholes. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Well where I work it is required that men wear a suit and you cannot take the jacket off unless it is after hours (6pm or later).
