Men's Sport Coats and Blazers Buying Guide

A great-fitting sport coat and/or blazer are essential to every man's wardrobe.  They can dress up a pair of denim  in a snap and are great for any 'smart casual' occasion.  Commonly mistaken for the same item, sport coats and blazers are not alike in the least bit.  While a blazer resembles a suit jacket  with a more casual cut, sport coats are made out of more durable material and are more versatile when it comes to styles.  Now that we've made this distinction, use this guide to find one that will instantly become your favourite new wardrobe item.
