American Blazer V. British Blazer - Page 2

post #16 of 17
In the mid-eighties, living in England I owned a British-made and bought blazer that was two button SB. It had double vents, though. I think the SB blazer was once quite common in England but is beginning to disappear. Perhaps this is due to the SB's ubiquity in America (and no Brit wants to be mistaken for an American), as well as the rise of the SB blue blazer as the hallmark of the security guard uniform.

In the mid-80's, I bought a SB blazer, side vent, "made in England" in shop in London. Terrifically heavy wool it was made out of. It was remarkably well-made.
