Every season, and especially spring-summer, is an ideal opportunity to show yourself to the world in a new coat. But it doesn’t have to be a jacket. If there is any piece of clothing that is inherent to the weather of this period and should not be missing in the wardrobe of a proper getleman, it is a jacket. But beware – there is no jacket like a jacket! Do you know what a solo jacket should look like or what to imagine under the term sports jacket? If not, after reading today’s article, you will definitely have a clear understanding and maybe even add a new stylish piece to your outfits.
Let’s start from the basics. The jacket is primarily the upper part of the suit, i.e. the basic men’s two-piece suit. Suits are sewn from special fabrics that are softer, have a lower weight and often have shiny fibers. It probably goes without saying that a perfectly fitting suit should definitely not be missing from any man’s wardrobe.
If you are sorry that you don’t use your nice suit as often as it deserves and it just sits idle in your closet, definitely don’t make it or its parts a regular part of your wardrobe. A suit is usually intended for specific events and is worn as a set. So, although it may seem that a suit jacket will look great with casual trousers, you should avoid implementing such outfit ideas. These attempts will never turn out well, on the contrary, rather ridiculous, and certainly do not indicate your refined sense of fashion. So the number one rule is – we wear a suit jacket only in combination with suit trousers.
You might be wondering, what about suit pants, does the same rule apply to them? Here the social dictate is a bit more open. If you choose a suitable shirt, belt and, for example, a vest, or combine them with shorts, you can create a very stylish outfit. In any case, don’t forget that trousers are the most worn part of the suit and can take a lot of wear and tear with regular wear. It may then happen that when the moment comes when the whole suit should shine, you will find out that the frequent wearing of trousers has taken its toll on their appearance and it is necessary to buy a new one, or in the worst case, the whole suit.
A solo jacket was not a blazer
The so-called blazers, or solo jackets, are considerably more variable alternatives to suit jackets. These can sometimes be very similar to a suit jacket in their cut and are among the more elegant variants of these men’s outerwear. However, in contrast to the strict rules that a suit jacket must adhere to, here you will find an abundance of style elements and designs.
The typical fabric for a blazer is wool, which is among the most classic materials for this type of clothing. In terms of patterns, there are almost no limits to imagination – ornaments, small motifs or more extravagant checks are no exception. A high-quality, elegant jacket cannot do without a lining, even though it may seem that a lining of a more moderate color shade would be appropriate in the case of a striking fabric, here, too, more expressive decors are often used in addition to the plain ones. In the case of single-colored versions of blazers, you can find playful and individualizing details in the form of embroidered lapels, badges and decorative buttons.
Solo jacket cuts respect every body type. In addition to the already mentioned classic suit, you can also choose from cuts such as extra slim, slim or modern. Apart from differences in men’s figures, they also respect the wearer’s personal taste and comfort. Variability also applies to slits on the back – you can find two, only one, and sometimes none at all. The loosening of strict rules under the baton of fashion trends also affected the number of buttons on the jacket. Two buttons are a common practice, but only one appears more and more often, which gives the jacket a modern and elegant look. What remains absolutely unchanged even with a blazer is the rule of the shirt sleeve – it should peek out approx. 1-2 cm.
What kind of jacket would it be if it lacked pockets, right? In a solo jacket, the pockets can copy the look and design of suit jackets, where their edge is covered by a short hem. Another option is pockets that are only cut horizontally or even sewn, expertly placed pockets, which is out of the question for suits.
Interesting fact: Do you know what a so-called ticket pocket is? This is a small pocket above the main pocket that has survived on coats and jackets since the beginning of the 20th century and was originally used to store a ticket. Today, these pockets are more like just another enlivening detail.
Sports and leisure jacket
The most casual and least formal variant of the jacket is the sporty one, also referred to as leisure. It is a fairly versatile piece that will become part of your everyday outfits – with chinos, but also with ordinary jeans, you will create a stylish look in the spirit of smart casual, in which you will simply feel comfortable.
The choice of jacket cuts remains as rich as for blazers, but the fastening is more and more often only one button, which further supports the casualness and comfort. Of the materials, natural ones such as cotton, linen or mixtures in which natural material predominates predominate. Light extravagance is represented by denim jackets, thanks to which you will undoubtedly stand out from the crowd. Another difference compared to the previous two variants is the possible absence of a lining.
The leisure jacket represents a simple elegance that is popular with sales representatives or officials whose profession requires a certain dress code, but at the same time they want to feel comfortable. However, this type of jacket is a perfect choice for parties, daily corporate events and dates.
We hope that in today’s article we have convinced you that says is a really interesting piece of clothing that is worth adding to your wardrobe. And if on men’s jacket you can’t let it go any longer, you will surely agree with us that now is the right time to buy a new model and revive your collection. There are never enough perfectly fitting and stylish jackets!
