I’m almost certain that my grandad had a blazer almost exactly like this one. He would not have worn it with a t-shirt and trainers though, preferring instead a shirt, a pullover and some smart shoes. While that look worked for him, I decided to dress my ‘grandad’ blazer down a bit with a cropped trouser, t-shirt and my Vans slip-ons.
The cropped trouser in question – a cropped kickflare velvet number I picked up some weeks ago in Weekday – is my current go-to bottom half. They’re already one of the most versatile items in my wardrobe, and I would very much like them in cord too. I think they make for the perfect partner to my blazer, which is from H&M. The blazer comes up a bit oversized, so buy your regular size for that subtle, borrowed-off-yer-bf mannish silhouette.
