Food for thought and comment
« on: October 08, 2016, 05:59:13 AM »
We went to the opera on Mon. The man sitting next to me in not-cheap seats was wearing a chalk-stripe coat and cords. The coat had plain buttons and I would consider it a suit coat.
 
I looked around at the next intermission and noticed that several men were wearing jackets that looked like suit coats with unmatched trousers. Is this a new trend? or a borrowed coat?
 
It raises the question about suit coats and odd jackets. What are the differences?

A blazer is generally a navy worsted with metal buttons--any other specifics?

A new trend - any jacket put with jeans/trousers is VOILA apparently a blazer. I blame Kanye and other assorted morons. Its not totally their fault though. I think it was Gucci that recently had mens coats with daffy duck patches on them? Pukeatronic to the stars and beyond. Makes a jacket with mismatched pants seem amazing in comparison. Anything goes these days.

I saw a pair of trousers last week that were so fitted as to sport a dart down the back of the undersides, from the outer dart to the knees.
