Blazer, Casual Jacket, Jacket
  • Trademark for the members of the boating clubs.
  • Can be pulled off with a jeans, hard to carry with brass bottoms
  • Traditionally has brass/metal buttons, but that’s obviously not always the case now.
  • Looks best in solid colors, almost always navy.
  • Wool blazers always adds a traditional value.
  • Lies in between Sport coat which is more casual and Suit jacket which is formal.

Sportcoat, Sports jacket
  • Usually an outerwear to carry with suits.
  • Sometimes, people tend to use the term blazers when referring to Sport coats(traditionalists hate this, since most of the people think it's not a big deal)
  • Fabrics are usually cotton or linen
  • More casual in nature than blazer
  • Originally worn at sport events or activities (hunting, shooting etc.

Suit Jacket, Suits, Jacket
  • A mismatched combination with jeans.
  • Buttons are usually made of horn or plastic
  • Fabrics are usually more finer and smoother than sport coats
  • Looks best with matching trousers.
  • More constructed in nature (Shoulder, canvas, pads etc)
