Frequently Asked Questions

Most frequent questions and answers

What is the difference between a sports jacket, a blazer, and a suit jacket

A sports jacket is designed for casual wear and is typically misade from textured fabrics like tweed or herringbone, featuring a more relaxed fit and less structured shoulders. Blazers are a bit more formal, often solid in color with metal buttons, and can be paired with non-matching trousers. Suit jackets come with matching trousers, are made from finer fabrics, and are intended for formal occasions and no, please never wear your suit jacket as a sports jacket alternative. Keep your suit as a suit and opt for a well thought out collection of sports jackets.

Can a sports jacket be worn both smart and casual?

Absolutely. A sports jacket is perfect for business casual settings. It pairs well with made to measure trousers, chinos, or even jeans, offering a polished yet relaxed look that is ideal for many professional environments.

How should a sports jacket fit?

A sports jacket should fit snugly around the shoulders without being tight. The sleeve should end just above the hand, allowing a half-inch of shirt cuff to show, and the jacket should button comfortably without pulling across the chest. The length should cover the bum, creating a flattering silhouette.

Can I wear a sports jacket in the summer?

Yes, sports jackets are versatile and can be worn year-round. For summer, opt for lightweight, breathable fabrics like linen, cotton, or light wool to stay cool and comfortable. You could even try deconstructed – no lining just a simple super light tailored jacket.

What’s the best way to style a sports jacket?

Styling a sports jacket depends on the occasion. For a casual look, pair it with a quality t-shirt or light knitwear, jeans, and sneakers. For a more formal appearance, wear it with a tailored shirt, dress trousers, and leather shoes. The key is to balance the jacket’s texture and colour with the rest of your outfit. We offer you all of this guidance and more so fear not.

How do I find the right fabric for my sports jacket?

Consider the season and the occasion. Heavier fabrics like tweed and wool are great for colder months, while linen and cotton are ideal for warmer weather. The fabric choice also depends on whether you’re dressing for a formal event or a casual outing. We do all of the heavy lifting for you. You’re the expert in what you do, and we’re the expert in style and tailoring.
