Boating Blazer

Boating Blazer

 

Our go to piece this summer is the Boating Blazer.

Words by: Corey M. Knight

It's the weekend and youre headed to a swanky soire in the hills. LA dress code dictates cocktail chic which loosely translated means see Duncan Quinn. Our go to piece this summer is the Boating Blazer. Uber preppy or rock n roll edgy, the Boating blazer is another iconic piece in the modern mans wardrobe. It was once commonly worn playing or attending traditional sports with stripes or piping representing your club or school colors. The striped variety became popular among British bands in the mid-60s and the mod revival of the 70s. The Who’s Pete Townshend and The Kinks rocked this look and created a whole new audience that followed the trend.

Whether youre cruising Santa Monica on your vintage Lambretta or chasing skirt on Sunset, this blazer will set you apart from the pack. From Regattas to Rock concerts to breaking ice at cocktail parties this blazer has stood the test of time.

Dress it up with white chinos and loafers or down with a pair walking shorts and some Prince Albert slippers.
