In today's post, Joe mentions: "One of the first blazers any guy starting to experiment with his own style will buy, and one of those items that’ll get plenty of use even as he graduates on to more expensive and better made jackets. There’s a place for a “beater blazer” in just about everyone’s wardrobe. A jacket does a lot for your look, even if you’re extremely dressed down. These blazers are cut from cotton with little lining or structure, and they’re meant to be worn casually. So much so that pairing a tie with one would probably look a little off. The fabric is going to wrinkle and rumple, and that’s just fine. You’ll spill salsa, beer, nacho cheese, or all of the above on it."
