Layer Up, Layer Down | The Men’s Wool Blazer

JW Lewis

It’s easy to lay­er with a wool blaz­er, the ver­sa­til­i­ty lim­it­ed only by one’s imag­i­na­tion. You can wear it over a thin sweater, a crew neck, a vest or a hood­ie. When the temps drop, you can wear a slim, down vest over it. And when it gets cold­er still, like the numb­ing wind chills here in Chica­go, it looks per­fect beneath an over­coat.

Basi­cal­ly, a wool blaz­er is a must have item because func­tion and form work togeth­er per­fect­ly. Think long term invest­ment with long term returns.

Per­son­al­ly, I like some­thing in char­coal with a fit­ted form, which works well with most col­ors and com­pli­ments the wear­er. L.L. Bean’s Sig­na­ture line hits the mark with their wool tweed coat. It has a mod­ern design with a trim cut, so I pulled the trig­ger and couldn’t be hap­pi­er. Make sure to size down, though, as my 42 had to be exchanged for a 40.

This time of year is loaded with bar­gains and look no fur­ther then All Saints, who make their home in Britain. They spe­cial­ize in somber, Goth­ic tones with a cut­ting edge and their deep selec­tion of coats have me drool­ing, specif­i­cal­ly the Denial jack­et. And at prices at almost half off with free shipping…yeah. We dig it.
