Draft for a boating blazer
« on: April 16, 2016, 05:28:41 AM »
Does anyone have suggestions for a basis draft for a boating blazer? I thought perhaps the 1970 T&C sports jacket draft: here.


I'm thinking fairly unstructured (though not totally so).

That is most interesting! I have next-to-nothing in Dutch drafts or anything on making-up. It's like the history has disappeared. I like that a sleeve draft is included. The reduced ironwork likely makes it more suited to cotton cloth.

What's the magazine?

I thought a blazer cold basically be any double breasted jacket with brass buttons.  Striped cloth for boating.

The (mainly blue) double-breasted with brass buttons is technically a reefer. The origin of the term is not for me to settle, but boating blazers are mostly single-breasted, striped coats rather than the blue coats people call blazers.

Lounge are single breasted.
Reefers are double breasted.
Blazers are either.
Then there is the navel reefer with metal buttons that is not really a blazer.

How about a shawl collar blazer, Henry?

Blue Blazers and Boating Blazers are one and the same, the cut is determined by fashion.  The reason boating ones have bright colours is due to competitive boating, the stripes and colours denoting the club, school, University etc.
