As our patience with overhyped, bot-addled streetwear and sneaker drops dwindles, it’s only natural that we’re turning towards slower, more timeless styling. The rise in popularity of more formal pieces is present across the board, from the sneakers-to-loafers trend through to Brendon Babenzien’s J. Crew takeover. But, the piece that really embodies our new, grown-up tastes is the blazer.

Men’s blazers are a difficult game to play. You don’t want to go over the top and end up forcing it, but, equally, there’s not much worse than a badly fitted, scruffy blazer. That’s why it’s essential to plan ahead. We’ve split this article into casual blazers and formal blazers, narrowing down the scope for you to make a blunder.

In the casual blazers section, brands like Our Legacy and Wales Bonner show the power of sprezzatura — the art of effortlessness — while our formal blazers selection looks to names like Balenciaga and Acne Studios to prove that formal doesn’t always mean boring.

We hit the pages of Mytheresa to round up 10 of the best men’s blazers of the season. Keep scrolling to find out which blazer works for you. Plus, keep in mind that you can secure free two-day postage on all of the blazers below.

A very easy way to minimize the formality of a blazer is by adding a print or a bold color. Dries Van Noten positions bold notches against a maroon backdrop to make sure that this blazer is striking but not too much.

In similar style to the Wales Bonner option, this Our Legacy blazer typifies what we look for in casual blazers. The relaxed tailoring means that it's easy to style over a fresh oxford shirt or something more laid-back like a T-shirt or even a hoodie.

Alexandre Matiussi gives us another talking point here: texture. While formal blazers tend to opt for sleek, smooth builds, bringing texture like corduroy into the equation instantly makes things feel more casual. A higher lapel makes room for three buttons here, too, which helps.

Polo Ralph Lauren

Herringbone Blazer

$576

Polo Ralph Lauren

There's little debate around the fact that Ralph is the king of casual blazers. The prep OG knows a thing or two about relaxed tailoring and which fabrics to use. In this case, lightweight wool complete with a herringbone motif.

Balenciaga of yore would have taken the formal assignment seriously but under Demna's control, the label couldn't possibly pass up on this opportunity to subvert. This blazer has been flipped inside out to give it typical Balenciaga character.
