  • How Do You Wear Your KENSINGTON Blazer?

    I just got it in navy. I cannot believe how well it fits OTR. Just wondering how everyone wears it.

      I purchased a Medium. I thought it was going to be too snug but it fit great. The sleeves could be a little longer, but not enough to stop me from buying it.

        And as for fit... I can easily shake someone's hand, but I cannot lift my arm up much at all.

          like a boss

          with jeans or with chinos. I have a navy and a khaki one. Got the sleeves tailored. Its a great casual blazer.

            I don't! Tried on the medium & large in store, decided on the large. Finally got the grey one online, & it fits like a lawn bag. I'm either gonna make some side seams & take it in or eBay it.

              It very versatile. Like printyra says, jeans and chinos for sure. I sometimes wear mine for business casual things with a plaid sportshirt and knit tie.

                just picked up 2 for 54 dollars, they're on sale for 30 each, 10$ off each $50.

                i got the khaki and the navy in medium. i've only tried on the small - not close to fitting. i'm a 38r, 32 waist, hoping the medium fits.

                  mr. mr. The medium should fit you well. I am a 38r and the navy Kensington in medium is perfect for me.

                      I'm a 38R, 32 waist as well (except for Bonobos pants where I'm a 31) and the medium Kensington fits me very well also. My only quibble is with the sleeves, which are way too long on me. That's not so difficult to fix, though.

                        I would slide my arms through the arms holes and let it drape over my shoulders.

                          @Dave-I'm surprised you could do a medium, looking at the measurements in your sig. I'm a 42r (41") and I could've pulled an incredible hulk in the medium, but the large was like a circus tent. Maybe I should go try it on again.

                            It was only slightly difficult to get on. Once it was one (with just a fitted t-shirt under) I felt comfortable in it.

                            Here is where the problems arise...
                            I am able to shake hands and function all right eating at a table or writing at a desk, BUT I cannot bend over to pick anything up or reach above my chest. My movement is very limited. I have a 42 inch chest and normally wear a 40R. I purchased a Medium. Undecided at this point. Probably returning it.

                              I wear it over whatever I'm wearing when I head out for drinks or shopping. Having the extra pockets for keys is great, and no matter what you'll look good. Favorite combo is jeans with a white ocbd over a henley. Has a more casual air than a v-neck sweater. I have no problems wearing it everywhere, if it gets stained or torn buying a new one is probably cheaper than cleaning, really.

                              I'm 6'3", with a 40 chest and the medium fits perfect if I'm moving around slightly. I can't really tie my shoes - it gets too tight around the shoulder/biceps - same thing if I'm driving, I have to hike the sleeves up a bit to get that mobility. Wondering if I should go large on the next one and get it adjusted. Not sure yet.
