Spring Essentials: The Navy Blazer w/ Ted Baker

We hold some truths to be self-evident. Among them: There are certain items that every man, from punk rocker to real-estate agent, requires in order to successfully and stylishly face the season at hand. “Essentials,” one might call them. Facing the prospect of springtime, as we currently are, one of those essentials is undoubtedly a well-fitting, impeccably detailed, office-to-evening navy blazer.

Keep reading to see what puts a Ted Baker blazer a cut above many of its contemporaries.

From the Ted Baker Team: “Never one to reserve exquisite tailoring for special occasions, Ted Baker is a firm believer that every man should own at least one versatile, everyday blazer…or what he prefers to call a ‘true wardrobe staple.’ Made from the finest Italian wool and sculpted with meticulous English craftsmanship, Ted Baker’s ‘Judd’ blazer [pictured here] is for the truly cosmopolitan man about town. In a dapper shade of navy, it features a sleek, slim cut, shaped with darts and tailored at the waist for a modern yet refined fit.”

Four details that set it apart:

1) Lapel. “Designed with a purple buttonhole and AMF stitching across the lapels, breast pocket and lower pocket flaps, the blazer is given a bespoke feel with our signature attention to detail.” —Ted Baker

2) Lining. “Four bespoke linings adorn the inside of the blazer. These Italian jacquards are designed exclusively by me and give a flash of finesse when slipping the blazer off and on.” —Ted Baker

3) Side Pockets. “A besom grosgrain ticket pocket gives the blazer an added touch of sophistication.” —Ted Baker

4) Sculpted Fabric Facing. “An exquisite, sculpted facing cut in the shape of a grand piano gives the blazer the perfect finishing touch. While I may not be one for tinkling the ivories, my tailoring is always finely tuned.” —Ted Baker
