Refreshing your wardrobe is but one way to get ahead as the calendar flips back to January, and we’d say that starting things off by picking up a great jacket is a sure recipe for success. The right blazer can pair with slim chinos and an Oxford just as readily as it can team with an easygoing henley and denim for a bit of high-low style. All you need to do is shop this list of the best blazers for men, then start dreaming up revamped menswear combos for the months ahead.
Corridor NYC Travel Blazer – $264
Want the best of both worlds? That is, tailored style merged with travel-friendly construction? That’s what you’re getting with the aptly named Corridor NYC Travel Blazer, made from premium Italian stretch wool fabric. Neither your first business trip nor your first big meeting stand a chance when it comes to looking your best.
Todd Snyder Unconstructed Sport Coat – $698
The lauded American menswear designer goes luxe and upscale with this beautiful blazer, a significant upgrade over any other jacket in your closet (with the exception of the ones on in this roundup, that is). Wear it with grey flannel trousers and your best dress boots for sharp style.
Kenneth Cole Reaction Check Blazer – $129
If your closet could use a bit of a continental style upgrade — that is, a bit more flair a la our neighbors across the Atlantic — this bold Kenneth Cole Reaction Check Blazer is the one to buy. Team it with charcoal corduroys or tan herringbone trousers, along with your best white dress shirt, for style that’s unique and all your own.
Original Penguin Crosshatch Nep Blazer – $100
