The Doeskin Blazer

When people think of going back to the basics, this usually means a navy blazer, button down shirt, and khakis.  Not a bad combination.  If you want to stick to the classic look, why not make it a little out of the ordinary.  The blazer can be a stand out item if it's constructed of a luxurious material, such as doeskin flannel.  I, for one, am not a fan of the traditional hopsack blazer. The cloth just doesn't excite me.  Yes, I like a substantial cloth, and I like to be excited by a nice cloth.  You can also opt for a pair of cashmere/cotton trousers instead of the usual cotton.  You are sure to stand out but people will not exactly know why, and that's a good thing. 

Here is a doeskin flannel 3/2 undarted sack blazer from O' Connell's Clothing.  It's the perfect fall and winter weight blazer, in my opinion.  It is sure to make the standard blazer jealous.
