All you really need to know is that in 2022 you don't need to wear your favourite blazer with a dress shirt—least of all those highly-starched, wildly uncomfortable joints hanging limply in the back of your closet. Instead, style your blazers like you would any other piece of outerwear in your fall repertoire and no one will mistake you for a business casual dress code made horrifyingly sentient.
We present you today five of the most wonderful blazers from Paul Smith:
Men's Slim-Fit Teal Linen and Silk-Blend Carlo Barbera Check Blazer
Crafted in Italy from a premium linen and silk-blend cloth from the renowned Carlo Barbera mill, this two-button teal blazer features a lightly-textured finish and a burnt red check pattern throughout. Cut for a contemporary slim-fit, this key catwalk piece is expertly finished with natural horn buttons and fully-functioning cuffs.
A Suit to Travel in - Men's Tailored-Fit Dark Green Loro Piana Wool Windowpane Check Blazer
Crafted in Italy as part of the 'A Suit To Travel In' collection, this dark green half-canvas blazer is constructed using a high-twist 100% worsted wool yarn, woven in Italy by Loro Piana - to create a quick recovery, crease-resistant cloth. Cut in our 'Soho' shape which is easy fitting through the chest with a tailored waist and hip - this jacket is unlined for increased breathability.
Men's Mid-Fit Teal Wool-Hopsack Shawl Collar Blazer
Constructed from 100% wool-hopsack cloth with a lightly textured handle, this blazer comes in a deep teal tone with a contrasting shawl collar. Cut for a mid-fit, which offers an easier fit throughout - this piece is finished with a single-button fastening.
Men's Mid-Fit Navy Cotton-Linen Buggy Lined Blazer
Constructed from a cotton and linen-blend twill, this lightweight summer blazer is buggy lined for improved breathability. Cut in our mid-fit, which offers more room than our slim-fit through the body - this classic workwear-inspired blazer is finished with tonal top-stitched patch pockets.
Men's Navy Stretch-Cotton Patch Pocket Blazer
Constructed from a cotton-twill cloth with stretch for increased comfort, this two-button unstructured blazer features workwear-inspired patch pockets. Cut for a mid-fit, which is an easier fitting shape - this piece is finished with paisley print buggy lining and colourful internal binding.
