The Highsnobiety Fall Fit Toolkit is your manual for dressing well this season, from wellies to weather-ready running gear.

When you envision the blazer as part of a suit - perhaps the most enduring menswear ensemble of all time — its place in the wardrobe is pretty much unquestioned. But separate it from that nuclear family, and nausea-inducing visions of finance bros in jeans and suit jackets spring to mind. You'd be forgiven for being a blazer hater.

This storied piece of clothing has been around since the 1800s, its origins most often traced back to the boating teams of Cambridge University. Since then, the blazer has been picked up and scootered across London by mods, supersized by Giorgio Armani, and treated to another moment in the spotlight via Michael Jordan in The Last Dance.

Now, we're here to do the blazer's bidding when it comes to the modern wardrobe. Below, we've selected 10 jackets that might just change your mind about this divisive garment. Not only can the blazer look good — but it's also totally fall-appropriate. Lightweight, layer-ready, and perfect for when you need something a little different than that tired transitional jacket.

Scroll on for some of the best blazers to buy right now.
