Behold! The most versatile garment ever conceived. The amazing, electrified, patented BlazerSuit (TM).

10 ounce fresco: about the most versatile cloth there is. Too hot for the real roaster days, but great for anything else. Hard wearing and a good traveller.

3 roll 2, 3 open patch pockets, swelled edges, brown horn buttons. Avoids the ubiquity of brass buttons. Horn makes the coat wearable as part of a suit. Brown makes it wearable as an odd jacket. Patch pockets and swelled edges dress it down a little further, but not so much that it does not work as a suit. Not a dinner party suit, maybe not even a Big Meeting suit, but wearable in almost any other circumstance.

This one suit is great for travel. You can wear the jacket on the plane with chinos. Wear the suit for business and for evenings out. Bring decent odd trousers for social events. Cut your packing time in half!

conservative business dress, with a worker bee red tie and black belt (& shoes):



Slightly more elegant: wine tie and brown belt (& shoes):



Swap out matching trousers for light gray (and tan belt & shoes) and you get CSD (Conservative Social Dress):



Yellow tie, tan belt & shoes: spring summer business attire when strict attention to conservative business dress is not required:



Swap in cream gab trousers and you are ready for the yacht club:



The classic California Tux configuration: blazer, khakis, BD shirt, sock tie:



All are welcome to copy The Amazing BlazerSuit (TM), but royalities on the intellectual property are payable to me via PM.

Yes, but more importantly they are a sign of Quality. Ask maclovin.

i love the lapels. yuck to everything else.

manton, i think i've mentioned this before, but it looks sloppy the way your shirt cuffs fall so low when you raise your arms. the way it looks in the last picture is the way they should all look. either you are getting your sleeves too short or your cuffs too large.

If you know someone at BB, this could be a great marketing idea. Heck they could even use the model in the above pics. The sassy snarkiness gets acceptably diminished in still pics.


Best of luck.

MOP. Not the best MOP, but good enough for me.

Thank you for the pictures! Normally I fear the navy blazer, but it looks good in these contexts.

Those shirts are made by the same maker, to the exact same measurements.

Jesus Christ, can we try to remember that we are dealing with CLOTH? When you raise your arms, cloth slips down. I am not going to staple my shirt cuffs to my skin just to avoid dumbass comments from SF know-it-alls.
