A Guide To Men's Blazer Fabrics

A Guide To Men's Blazer Fabrics

While we spend a lot of time on fit and style, it's the fabric that can truly set a blazer apart from the rest. The reason is two-fold: wearability and style. Breathable yet durable fabrics ensure our blazers can be worn in all seasons and will continue to drape favorably on your torso for many years to come. Our mix of solids and subtle textures, as well as bolder checks, will keep your style fresh and versatile for any occasion.

A Guide To Men's Blazer Fabrics
100% Wool

Wool is an all-natural fiber that's breathable and resilient. When tightly packed, the crimped wool fibers create tiny pockets of air that allow the fabric to absorb and release moisture. This makes wool a classic choice for blazers and overcoats, as it is a natural insulator that's not stifling.

Poly Blend

Poly blends have rich textures, and combine the best characteristics of two different fibers for ultimate wearability. Polyester is crease-resistant and holds its shape well over time. Merge that with the insulating powers of wool, or the softness of viscose, and you have an easy-to-wear, all-season blazer.

Brushed Cotton

This incredibly smooth variety of cotton undergoes a special brushing treatment that removes excess lint and fibers from the cotton. The process creates a smooth, soft finish, and it’s a natural fiber, so it breathes easily and wears comfortably. And because it doesn’t need ironing, it’s a great travel choice.

Hopsack

Hopsack is not technically a fabric, but rather a method of weaving, which in turn makes the fabric more breathable. The broad weave also creates a subtle square pattern that adds a woven texture to the fabric. The weave itself gives the fabric a natural wrinkle resistance and a very relaxed, forgiving drape.

Checks/Plaids

We use a variety of checks and plaids for our blazers. The mini check pattern consists of criss-crossing bands of colored yarn woven together to create a tiny checked pattern. Plaid is similar in the way that a cross-hatched pattern is created by weaving alternating bands of color.

Flannel (Brushed Wool)

Flannel wool is lightweight and drapes well on the body, making it a natural choice for men's blazers. It is also remarkably comfortable and soft with a slightly fuzzy finish. The natural matte finish creates a relaxed yet sophisticated feel, and the easy care makes it another good choice for travel.
