Blazers

Blazers

Blazers, both single and double breasted, are probably the most iconic piece of menswear. A blazer is often a completely natural choice, as it opens up all kinds of opportunities and is suitable for most occasions. A classic blazer should be part of every collection. For many years the blazer has been – and continues to be – a firm favourite in the male wardrobe.

You can wear a blazer in a casual style with a pair of jeans, or go for a slightly more formal look with a pair of matching trousers. You can wear it as a jacket on a warm day, or use it to pep up and celebrate an otherwise casual outfit. At SUNWILL, we have blazers for all occasions. We have classic woollen blazers that can be worn for business and celebrations alike; and then there are the less formal varieties, where the selection of available fabrics and colours means they can be worn in a slightly more relaxed fashion on a daily basis. One thing all our blazers have in common is the fact they can be combined with chinos, jeans and neat woollen trousers.

We have matching trousers – trousers made from the same fabric in the same colour – to go with many of our jackets. Technically, we’re really keen on the traditional suit.
The advantage of SUNWILL is that you can mix and match. There are two jacket sizes and three trouser sizes in our most popular fabric, and we also have waistcoats made from the same fabric. There are also five different colours to choose from, so you can easily find a suit for any occasion.

The blazer dates back a long way, and it’s undergone an enormous amount of development. The blazer is a classic menswear staple nowadays.
The blazer is said to have originated at the Lady Margaret Boat Club and aboard the HMS Blazer.

The Lady Margaret Boat Club was founded in 1825 by members of St. Johns College in Cambridge in Great Britain – and all members wore red flannel jackets. These jackets were dubbed “blazers” because the red colour meant they looked as though they were blazing.
The HMS Blazer was a British naval vessel. In 1837, the commander-in-chief decided that the crew were to have new uniforms. This was before fleet uniforms were standardised, and the captain designed a uniform with white and navy stripes, the jacket – subsequently named the blazer– was double-breasted and bore the iconic Royal Navy buttons. The word “blazer” later became synonymous with this type of jacket.
