Totally wrong. Properly double-breasted, as the navy blazer is derived from British naval attire. But elbow patches are the stuff of country tweed or corderoy jackets, used to extend the life of those functional and hearty mainstays of the country house. Without the patches, this could be a nice blazer.
The cut is vulgar.
And the ticket or change pocket above the standard one makes it look like a hacking jacket rather than a blazer. In theory, you could remove those goofy elbow patches (more appropriate on a well-worn tweed or corduroy coat) but the change pocket is a feature more appropriate to tweed jackets or the jackets of bespoke Savile Row suits.Anyway, you are absolutely right: It is very overdone, as if a young designer ignorant of sartorial history sought to include every supposedly "upper class" detail he could think of. Is this a Ralph Lauren creation, or one of his misled imitators? Maybe Hilfiger or the Italian design team over at Brooks Brothers?
Yeah, it's a bit much. An odd looking combination of styles.Best Regards,Ulrich von B.
just plain wrong. NG (not good)
I agree- the rest of the blazer is a little too refined (double breasted) to have the more casual elbow patches
Great for the the oh-so conservatively dressed pimp!
