Mens Spring Summer Fashion Formula #5: Blazer and a Tee

May 6th, 2009

Mens Spring Summer Fashion Formula #5
Feeling the love for this set?  Here’s more information about it.

If there ever was an outfit that embodied the concept of insouciance - a messy, imperfect sophistication - it would have to be the blazer + tee combination.  It’s a look that can go almost anywhere, from a day in the office to a casual date.  Here’s how to get the blazer + tee look:

1.  Start with the core of the outfit: a simple t-shirt.  For a sophisticated look, try a fitted tee in a solid color, perhaps with an interesting texture.  Bonus points for trying a henley (as shown) instead of a regular v-neck or crewneck tee. 
2.  Pair the t-shirt with jeans, preferably dark denim in a straight cut.
3.  Add a well-cut blazer to the mix.  The tailoring on the blazer instantly elevates the rest of the outfit.
4.  Finish the look off with casual accessories: a pair of John Varvatos sport sneakers and a canvas carryall.

Guys, how would you wear a blazer and tee?  Share your style with us in the comments!

    I think a blazer with a solid color T shirt looks pretty cool with jeans and casual or dressy shoes. Henleys and polo shirts work well also. The whole rock t shirt with blazers look has been played out. Same with any t shirt with ironic statements or whatever. Stick with solid or stripes to be classy.
