In the hierarchy of men's overcoats, sport coats are considered to be more of a casual jacket rather than fine apparel. As their name suggests, sport coats were originally used as casual attire for hunting and riding, activities during which a heavier and more durable fabric was desired. Sport coats are commonly constructed with corduroy, suede, and tweed. Sport coats are a great way to dress up a casual outfit consisting of jeans and a button-up.
A step up in formality we find the blazer. Blazers are cut more casually than traditional suit jackets, allowing its wearers to exert themselves easily maintaining a sartorial dignity befitting a fashion-forward gentleman of leisure. Generally, blazers are made of fabric in one, solid color. Like sport coats, blazers can also be paired with jeans and dress boots for a casual yet elegant look.
Suit jackets are usually more structured, have a stronger shape, and are made from finely woven fabric. While sport coats and blazers pair well with jeans, the suit jacket often looks too texturally different from jeans to work together. A fitted, custom suit jacket is a one-of-a-kind piece of clothing that is made specifically for your dimensions, ensuring that you look your best.
