Boys Thermal Blazer with Thinsulate™ & Stormwear™
Very smart and comfortable
Really pleased with this blazer, ordered a few to try and compare and this won every time, the fit, quality and design are excellent. Has internal zips for money/phone and the thermal/quilted lining not only is great for colder days but gives the blazer a more smarter robust look. Son has had many compliments.

Not black & heavily padded shoulders-weird
Everyone else is right - this is definitely not black, it has a sort of brownish tinge and is quite shiny. This is quite obvious when held up against M&S black school trousers.
Also it has heavily padded shoulders which gives it an 80s look! - definitely not something my 11 yr old would wear.
This is so disappointing as it is such a good idea with the warmer spec (my son refuses to wear coats too)
Please revise this M&S as it is a sure winner if you can get the same material as your other blazers and take out the Joan Collins pads!

bad colour !!
thought we would be on to a winner .fit ok. never easy with a tall thin youth, this idea is fantastic [boys dont do coats!!] but after ordering our normal pleat front classic trousers [longer length] the black colour is not the same.the blazer has a red/ brown hue next to the trousers .we also ordered the longer length classic blazer and its the same.come on M&S pull your fingers out. they should match.will have to send back. what a shame.

Great blazer but why stop at age 16?
I bought this for my son when he moved to Upper School, mainly because of the Thinsulate lining, as boys just won't wear winter coats will they?
I was surprised to find that my then 13 year old, who is of decidedly average build, and usually wears slim fit trousers, needed this blazer in age 16 and even then it was clear that there wasn't enough growing room to make it last more than a year.
It has generally washed and worn well, other than when the seam above the back vent came apart (caused by constant pulling where my son has his hands in his pockets all the time).
As feared, my son has grown several inches during the year and now needs a bigger size, but there isn't one. Please, please M&S can you make this blazer in larger sizes like you do your other styles? I'd buy it again in a heartbeat.
