I mentioned to my secretary that I was considering a camel hair blazer and she said they were for old men (and she's an old woman).
I bought my first camelhair jacket when I was 22. Admittedly, it was more "hip" than one typically sees in American camelhair jackets, with hacking pockets, a ticket pocket, and Roman shoulders. Not an "Ivy League" jacket at all. I still wear it and like it.
The second is just a regular sportcoat that happens to be made out of camelhair. Both are thick and heavy, and I could not imagine either one being worn during warmer months.
