A Guide To Men's Blazer Construction

A Guide To Men's Blazer Construction

We consider ourselves to be menswear nerds here at Hugh & Crye. As such, we pay a lot of attention to the details when it comes to things like style, fit, fabric and construction. We believe that attention to detail is evident in our blazers.

A Guide To Men's Blazer Construction
Fusing vs. Canvas Interlining

Interlining, the layer between the outer fabric and lining of the jacket, often determines the quality and durability of a garment. During fusing, the interlining is bonded to the wool shell of the blazer to help preserve shape and structure. A canvassed blazer has layers of material hand-stitched onto the outer layer. Our blazers are partially fused in the chest-piece and constructed with materials that offer the feel and wear of a canvassed blazer without the cost.

Inner Fabric/Lining

Not to be eclipsed by the quality of the outer fabric, the inner fabric lining is equally important and can add unique character to your style in unassuming ways. Our fully lined men's blazers use 100% polyester lining in a colorway that complements your style without shouting loudly and garishly from the rooftops. Our half-lined blazers have minimal lining as the name suggests, to add support to the arms and shoulders.

Shoulders

The shoulders of our men's blazers are lightly padded to create a slightly sharper angle, which emphasizes the individual physique of the wearer. The padding is intentionally subtle, so that it doesn't weigh down on the shoulders, and is incredibly comfortable. In combination with the other elements of construction, our shoulder design creates a clean, slim line no matter what your size.

Chest Piece

As mentioned previously, our men's blazers feature a fused chest piece that offers the relaxed feel of a canvassed blazer without the added expense. No stiffness or boxiness here, just wonderful drape and durability. Again, it’s all about creating clean lines, a sharp silhouette and a truly flattering fit.
