Obsession: School Boy Blazers

Every woman should own a blazer. A blazer is the ideal piece of clothing to throw on in the morning to instantly pull together an outfit. One of the most easily wearable “menswear” items for women, blazers (along with sports coats) were initially reserved for sportsmen and were especially popular in Britain. During the 1920s, many men were searching for clothing that was versatile and could be dressed up or down (and that was also significantly less formal than a suit), and so they adopted the blazer and revolutionized its look. The blazer took a little longer to catch on with women; Coco Chanel designed a version in the 1920s but it wasn’t until the 1930s that blazers became staples in women’s wardrobes.

Regular readers of the Hitchcock Madrona Blog probably know that we love menswear. Fittingly, we’ve created our own version of this iconic coat. Hitchcock Madrona blazers are entirely made of wool and they all feature Italian buttons and vintage fabric for the trim. Ours is a little bit longer than the traditional blazer and is perhaps a little closer in feel to a sports coat. This practical, warm and stylish coat comes in an array of colors and is sure to be a favorite of yours for years to come.
