THE RELAXED BLAZER
Contemporary and on trend, jersey jackets are a great option for lifting more laid-back outfits or refreshing a formal look, says menswear editor William Oliver
A softer take on traditional tailoring, the jersey blazer has come into its own recently, offering a contemporary alternative to a more formal jacket. Worn with chinos or tailored trousers and a shirt, the blazer creates a smart but modern feel – or team it with jeans and a polo top to instantly lift a downtime look. This M&S Collection version comes in a slimmer cut, giving a flattering shape, and the use of double-faced jersey adds structure to the relaxed nature of the material. Half-lined to give you more freedom of movement and keep you cool, this stylish piece is a great twist on a classic.
