Above: Shades of Grey Navy Pique Cotton Knit Blazer – $89.99 ($198)
Have you guys seen these yet? Seems like they’ve gained steam since spring. Plenty of us have a real soft spot for sportcoats and blazers that are so unlined they’re little more than a shirt cut into the shape of a jacket.
But what about a sweater that has had the same done to? Or a sweatshirt? Seems like plenty of brands have jumped on board by making one of these knit/sportcoat hybrids:
Calvin Klein Slim Fit Cotton Knit Blazer – $89.99 ($275)
Seen this one in person. It looks really soft, but has a bit of a sweatshirt heathering to it. It’s smooth and clean, but still unmistakeably knit even from a bit of a distance.
Marc New York Wool Knit Peak Lapel – $90.39 ($350)
Something as dressed up as a peak lapel is a real reach on these things. At least it’s 100% wool though?
Brooks Brothers Merino Knit Blazer – $199.00 ($398)
Well that’s something. Brooks Brothers not only has a knit blazer, they gave it a 3/2 roll.
Thoughts? Would you wear it? Do you have one already? Or is something just off? Leave it all below…
