The sartorial classic list will always have this one item which has been the game changer for most of the occasions: A Blazer. Job interviews, first date, weekend brunch and it goes on.
But styling one isn’t always easy. Indeed, too many men spend valuable time trying to pair a blazer and trousers – time they could be using to do more important things like, you know, playing video games.
Saint & Stitch has compiled this handy list of the best blazer-trouser combinations, so you can spend less time deciding what to wear and more time wearing it.
Navy Blazer + Beige Chinos
The universal choice, a blind pick and an undisputed champion. If this combination of two quintessential menswear colours can’t make you look good, then we’re not sure what else will.
A structured blazer and a sports jacket- honours the look pretty well. Colour code: NAVY (we say NAVY, not midnight or royal blue) and let the occasion dictate your choice of chinos: flat-front for casual dress codes; pleat-front for something that’s a touch smarter.
Tweed/Wool Blazer + Jeans
Life is not always about suits and boots. (Though boots look good). For the times when pocket square bewilders you and lapel game dulls you- rough your things up as you go from subtler halls to tougher towns.
A textured wool blazer with jeans (personal favourite) won’t make you look off the place while ensuring your debonair doesn’t slip.
Patterned Blazer + Neutral Trousers
OK, so the blazer is sometimes boring, we get it. Well let’s accept the fact straight- if a plain colour style has already started working as a sedative, then perk your look up with some pattern.
It doesn’t have to be much – just a subtle check like the etched windowpane or even a chalk-stripe is enough to break the fashion monotone. Go for ‘not so fancy’ combinations till you attain the Jared Leto status!
