The bottom line is, nobody knows. None of the traditional accounts can be proved.I know I'm opening up a can of worms here, but what is the exact story behind the appellation of 'blazer'. Â I've heard many conflicting accounts.
I wouldn't go so far as to say "nothing." Â Side vents are more typically English, whereas center vents are definitely American. Â The coat called "American" really does look like an "American/Trad" coat. Â I just think it's a stretch to say that the other one is quitessentially "English."So, from what I can tell, the difference between the two are slim and have nothing to do with the country style.

In my opinion (true Brits, weigh in please), a 2-button worsted blazer is never going to look English to the English. But at least the side vents give it an air of Britannia.So I guess, is the blazer a more british looking one, or it just a line from Ben Silver?
