How many sport coats do I need?
We think there are three essential jackets every man should own. A solid blazer—navy is a classic choice—exudes timeless confidence: It can be worn casually with chinos and an oxford or dressed up with a more formal pant, shirt and tie. A tweed blazer is a fall essential that works well with cords, jeans or flannel. As the weather gets cooler, it can also be worn in place of a winter overcoat when layered with a cashmere or wool sweater or turtleneck. During the warmer months, nothing exudes laidback style more than a linen sport coat, which instantly dresses up everything from a mercerized cotton polo to a tailored shirt.
