The Navy Blazer with Gold/Brass Buttons vs. The Navy Blazer with Tonal Buttons
Your Dad probably had a navy blazer with gold or brass buttons. Your Grandpa probably had one too. Saying that the Navy Blazer is a classic, foundational piece of a man’s wardobe would just be cliche. Not only that, but simply pointing out the cliche is probably in and of itself a cliche.
And round and round we go. Pretty sure I’ve even confused myself now.
Is the traditional gold button look infallible? Or does the newer, sleeker, matching-in-hue-buttons improve one of the most entrenched articles of clothing ever? Your vote goes in the comments section below, but consider this. I could be wrong, but it’s doubtful that any woman in recent memory took one look at a man’s gold buttoned blazer and thought: “That’s sexy.”
I’ll take the new school option every single time.
Other slimmed down blazers: Calvin Klein Stretch Wool Blazer – $199, Lands’ End Canvas Heritage Navy Blazer – $179.00. The Indochino options do come with the $75 re-tailoring credit, and you have to admit, that’s nice. BUT… also know they’re a “wool blend.” No word yet on what it’s blended with, or to what % level.
