Like in any field, there will always be purists and those who don't mind trying something different. Even among Blazer purists, there is discrepancy about what constitutes a "real" Blazer. The 1837 story of the HMS Blazer in England is now legendary,and yet there's some evidence to suggest that the first Blazers were in fact red and white striped. There are references to cricket origins as well. And to some, Blazers can not be Blazers if they are not solid navy or black in color (i.e., tan blazers) ...or with the requisite buttons. So, my advice is to listen to the learned opinions herein, but not worry about commiting any cardinal sins. Someone is ALWAYS going to tell you you're wrong one way or the other, based on their vantage point. And you can't please everybody.
