Men’s fashion is fast and becoming more diverse.
The days when all you could purchase were the staples from your favourite retail outlet are disappearing quickly. Modern style is about dressing to your own personality, and having a personalised blazer or suit can do just that.
With choices in fabric, lapels, jacket and sleeve length, buttons, stitching and even embroidered patches, your blazer game just entered a new world with The Spectre Collection starting from $399 for a custom designed and crafted piece.
Our second video instalment (see below) features variations and options in style, fit and inspiration delivered at Spectre. In this post, we’ll talk through our opinion on blazer style and some of the looks featured in this video.

Also featured is a light pink blazer with black shawl lapels, both of which look fantastic paired with a black t-shirt or a white shirt as seen in the latest Kingsmen movie.
Loud & proud, does not have to mean brash. The key to any daring outfit is to wear it with confidence and allow you and your blazer to stand out. The blazer should be the main focus of your outfit with everything else built around it. Here are some tips on adding colour to your look:
A light blue blazer is one of the most versatile colours you can opt for, making a subtle statement to draw fashionable attention without going over the top. It works especially well in the summer with its pale colouring, keeping you looking and feeling cool. The light blue pictured below in a full suit is not out of place at the races or polo, and if it is a more casual look you are after, simply pair your blazer with jeans or chinos.
In general, pale colours look great in the bright sun and also do well to keep you cool, as they don’t absorb as much heat as darker colours.
For some, just the thought of a Red blazer brings anxiety and fear of being over the top and drawing attention. Red is an attention grabbing colour, but it can the right impact even for the more conservative folk in the right shades. A brighter red can suit a casual affair in the summer months in a lighter cloth such as linen. Pictured is a Silk/Linen blend with a blue windowpane design.
For a dapper occasion, opt for a dark red or maroon paired with dark navy or black trousers. A velvet fabric blazer is not out of place at a formal occasion and not out of place introducing a satin lapel in a contrast colour such as black.
