THE SNAPPY BLAZER
Take the square route to style with a checked tailored jacket, as featured in GQ magazine, says M&S.com menswear editor, Daniel Copley.
To launch our new Coast to Coast collection, GQ magazine's fashion editors styled some key pieces from the range and photographed them by the striking chalk cliffs of Seven Sisters, East Sussex. My favourite piece from GQ's selection is this season’s key item: the checked blazer. From Prince of Wales check to gingham and plaid, the classic print has moved with remarkable swiftness from being high fashion to highly wearable; it’s a catwalk trend that ‘real’ men can feel comfortable wearing. The understated puppytooth blazer fits the bill perfectly – simply style it with dark formal trousers and a crisp white shirt.
