Here, we present our unbiased insights into the best blazers for men, the go-to choices to elevate your smart style game this year.
What We’re Looking For
When it comes to selecting the perfect blazer, there are several things to consider. Here’s what you should be thinking about:
Style and Fit: What style are you aiming for, and how do you want your blazer to fit? From classic single-breasted to trendy double-breasted, there’s a blazer style for every occasion and preference.
Material: Blazers come in a variety of fabrics, each offering a distinct look and feel. Whether you prefer the timeless elegance of wool, the lightweight comfort of linen, or the versatility of cotton, your choice of material can have a huge impact.
Colours: Your blazer’s colour is a statement in itself. Are you looking for a timeless navy or charcoal grey, or do you want to make a bold statement?
Occasion: Blazers aren’t one-size-fits-all. Consider the context in which you’ll be wearing your blazer. Is it for formal events, business meetings, or a night out?
Brand Reputation: While it’s tempting to stick to well-known brands, don’t overlook the opportunity to discover hidden gems.
Budget: Setting a budget is key. Quality blazers come in a wide range of price points; finding one that aligns with your budget while maintaining quality is a win-win situation.
Versatility: Some blazers are versatile workhorses, suitable for a range of outfits, while others are tailored for specific styles or occasions. Consider how versatile you want your blazer to be.
Personal Preferences: Finally, trust your own fashion instincts. Your blazer should reflect your personal style and make you feel confident and comfortable.

Price: From $199
Dutch-based company Suitsupply has been supplying suits to gents since the year 2000. It has consistently been regarded as one of the best places for men to get their suiting needs, as it perfectly marries together well-made designs with incredibly high-quality fabrics. Best of all, Suitsupply charges much lower prices than the quality of its suits would suggest.
We could, therefore, have chosen pretty much any blazer from the company’s catalogue, but have settled on this green Havana jacket, partly because we just love the colour. However, it has plenty of substance too, such as being made from a silk-linen blend fabric from Italian company Ferla. It’s an unstructured blazer too, so is best suited for spring and summer, with its slim-fit silhouette making it the perfect partner to a pair of tailored chinos.
Suitsupply is a no brainer for the best blazers for men.
Price: From $645
German fashion brand Hugo Boss is one of the go-to brands when it comes to luxury suiting. With fitment and quality of fabric being two main factors that go into every piece it creates, you can be sure a Hugo Boss blazer will not only make you look impeccable but last you for years on end.
The main baulk of Hugo Boss’ sport coat range is made from virgin wool, with pure wool and cotton thrown in for good measure. Available in multiple colours and styles, Hugo Boss make some great blazers on the market.

Bonobos was born because founders, Andy Dunn & Brian Spaly, couldn’t find men’s pants that fit (they were either too tight or too boxy) and wanted to fix this common problem men face while shopping. They fixed it with their not-so-secret secret: all Bonobos’ pants have a curved waistband that conforms to the natural shape of men’s waists.
Bonobos then expanded into producing awesome shirts, suits, swimwear; you name a piece of men’s clothing, they do it; including blazers. Bonobos has a huge range with multiple colours, prints, fits, fabrics, and styles available. Whether you’re after a casual or formal men’s blazer, Bonobos will have it.

Their range of blazers is excellent, and every style has been engineered with moisture wicking, wrinkle-resistant, and machine-washable fabrics for easy wear and care.

The go-to clothier for preppy Ivy League students and young professionals, J. Crew certainly knows a thing or two about the humble blazer (and its natural chino partner).

The company’s Ludlow suit series has been going since 2008, so must be doing something right. Available in both structured and unstructured, guises, it’s the latter we particularly love.
