About Suits & Blazers

In clothing, a suit is a set of garments made from the same cloth, usually consisting of at least a jacket and trousers. A blazer is a type of jacket resembling a suit coat cut more casually, typically with metal buttons. A blazer's cloth is usually durable (14oz.), as it is intended as an outdoor jacket. Stylistically, blazers often are uniform garments, e.g. for airline, school, and yachting and rowing clubs. A blazer is generally distinguished from a sport coat as a more formal garment and tailored from solid color fabrics. Blazers are often made with naval-style metal buttons, reflecting their historic boating club association.
