How Many days a week can I wear a navy blazer?

I recently purchased a navy blazer which I'm madly in love with because it goes with everything, and i always switch it up everyday. How many days can someone wear a navy blazer before it starts looking weird and conspicuous? I'm curious because its the only classic blazer I own at the moment.

Become an Admiral, then you can wear it everyday.

Otherwise I'd wear it maybe three times a fortnight.

Well first of all, are we talking about a club blazer with brass/golden/silver buttons?
If so, then once a week. Since the "clubber" isnt that basic it does stand out rather well in the croud.

However, if the navy blazer is one of discreet character you'd be able to wear it atleast two times a week, but only if its a regular navy blazer. Make sure you use different pants/slacks and choose different ties though. But that I'm sure you understand

I thought that a regular navy blazer would indeed have brass/golden/silver buttons. I cannot think of any more regular buttons for a navy blazer.

How often you can wear the same jacket/suit is a matter of personal taste and a matter of how much choice you actually have. One of the guys here at the office seems to only have two suits and wears them on alternate days. Nothing wrong with that. My only "rule" is never to wear the same suit/odd jacket two days in a row or more than two days during the same week, except when travelling.

Since we're talking opinions, mine is once a week.

+1

And perhaps an extra wear weekends. But at work not more than once a week.

A blazer can have other types of buttons, such as brown horn or even regular plastic ones, which makes the impression less...flashy, I think.

Haha what?!


You cant seriously think that one would laundry a blazer every time it has been used, right?

If I am not mistaken, a "Blazer" by definition requires metal buttons-- (owing to the naval origin), a navy jacket with horn, plastic, etc becomes an odd jacket...

Normal workplace: once a week, plus once on the weekend.

Travel: once every three days.

I'm still searching for another odd jacket that is as versatile as a navy blazer.

If you see the same people every day (at work or in social situation), then I think more than once or twice a week would be strange...it would be noticable...

I must admit, though, that I've gone on a week long business trip, different city every day for a meeting, and only packed a blue blazer (with several pairs of slacks, different shirts and ties)...wearing the blazer for only a couple of hours a day kept it looking fine, and no one knew but me.
