Like a sharply tailored suit or crisp navy jeans, a great sport coat is an essential in any man’s wardrobe. It allows for more freedom than the suit, in both style and comfort, as you can experiment more with colour, texture, and pattern. The sport coat is a simple garment to integrate into your closet, and your daily life. Here is a sample of our favorites that we feel every man should own.
Solid Navy or Grey
A sharp navy or grey sport coat is ubiquitous, it projects sophistication while allowing for versatility in your wardrobe. It provides that happy medium between work and play, and can be paired with nearly anything. Go for a textured tweed for a little more interest, or a smooth cashmere blend to keep it simple.
Plaid or Windowpane
Plaid is both eye catching while remaining an elegant classic. If you are looking for something bold, a rich blue or brown with a contrasting print will add life to an outfit. Alternatively, a subtle grey windowpane can add pattern and interest, while remaining versatile enough for everyday. With selecting a colour and pattern size, it is important to take into consideration size and height. Our MADE style consultants will make sure you select the perfect fabric that flatters your shape and skin tone.
A grey herringbone is the perfect way to go if you are wary of prints, but looking to add some texture and already have a solid blazer such as the navy mentioned above. It conveys casual elegance, and can be dressed up enough for a dinner, or down with some boots and a sweater for a casual weekend.
At MADE, we offer an extensive selection of colours, fabrics, and patterns to choose from. Book an appointment with one of our style consultants to browse our fabrics and get fitted for your next sport coat.
