Men With Fashion Sense

Even men are consequence about their fashion sense and worry about what others will think. The new fancy name for suit coats and sports coats is blazers. The media and entertainment world created this without realizing. When seeing interviews that are sports or entertainment driven they have breathed new life into the blazers.

The NFL commentators wearing blazers with sweaters and turtlenecks. This is a normal site that time of year since it's near the end of football season the colder weather is settling in. Country singers wear the tee shirt blazer combo and a button down shirt with no necktie, though they have the rawhide with steer to dress up the shirt. Of course they top it off with their cowboy hats and boots. No cowboy would be seen in anything but!

The more seasoned professionals wear their blazer with a shirt and tie. Dressing to impress expresses their style. Young professionals, college professors and actors sport the tee shirt blazer combo. They go for the more casual look, dressing for comforts sake. If the ladies plan a night on the town they are greeted quite often by a man wearing a blazer with an open color shirt and it is accessorized by a a silver or gold chain.

The picture I've chosen for this hub is Robert Redford sporting a blazer with a shirt and sweater minus the tie. Some men will wear the same combo and include a tie. There is also the person who chooses the blazer, shirt and bow tie. Then you have the preppy style of blazer with shirt, tee shirt, sweater or turtleneck and the rolled up sleeves of the blazer.

This is my take on the many ways men can wear a blazer.

      I'm often too warm to wear a blazer and find them encumbering. I prefer a stylish shirt with matching jeans or well cut pants.

      Thank you for creating this Hub! I dont think there is a wrong way for a man to wear a blazer :) I especially like the casual blazer look - like the picture you chose for the Hub. I think it looks edgy and shows that the man appreciates style but is comfortable enough in his own skin to dress it down.
