The fabric for the blazer was woven in England and is 100% pure new wool (340 g/m²). The term "blazer" stems from the crew of the British frigate, HMS Blazer, who were all kitted out with blue jackets with gold buttons for a visit by Queen Victoria in 1837. Nowadays, the blazer is a part of every man's basic wardrobe apparel. When worn with grey trousers it conveys a slightly more formal appearance than with the tweed jacket. For a more casual look, leave off the tie. Workmanship and style as for the tweed jacket. With gold-plated buttons.
