Ask the MB: Good Casual Blazers

Ask the MB: Good Casual Blazers
Q: Is there any such thing as a casual, not-too-expensive, good-looking sport coat than can be worn with nice jeans (e.g. AG)? Something suitable for the warm months ahead.
--Gabriel


A: There are three simple but inalienable commandments we observe when buying a casual blazer, and that makes finding one harder than you'd think:

1. Thou shalt be machine washable (and preferably machine dryable, too)
2. Thou shalt have two buttons
3. Thou shalt be free of shoulder-enhancing pads

This Prada Sport version in military green satisfies all three, and it's on sale now for $295. We think it will look great with AG jeans.

POURCAST

  • 2 parts Germain-Robin Craft Method brandy

Lightly shake with ice, then pour into a ice-filled rocks glass. Based on your tastes, brandy choice, and strength of the lemon juice, you should adjust the Cointreau and lemon juice to find proper balance.
