Anyone know of any rugged/distressed blazers or sport coats? Canvas, denim, etc

    I've found my wool or linen sport coats don't match jeans very well, and tend to give off a more polished vibe than what I'm going for when I'm trying to be more casual. I'd like to have something sort of like a 'Carhartt' workwear blazer, except Carhartt's actual blazer for sale doesn't look rugged enough. I'm looking for flat-felled (like jeans) seams around the edge of the lapels and pockets, metal rivets or buttons or something, and some sort of distressing effect. If anyone has any fabric in mind I'm willing to go bespoke on it too.

    Dont get too side tracked with gimmicks. Get a more casual fabric, like corduroy or tweed. Seersucker or linen for summer.

    Check out the Duluth Trading firehose presentation jacket. On and off, I've seen Ralph Lauren, Diesel, G-Star, and Rogan offer denim blazers or otherwise "rough hewn" blazers.
