Bold Blazer Volume IV: Mastering The Teal Blazer

The summer season is coming to a close, however; you still have to time to rock a “go-to-hell” type of cotton blazer. Target released the Mossimo Black line for men a few months ago, with some extremely bold and eye catching colors. Boasting a more tailored fit, Mossimo Black was set to be the introduction of modern-tailoring for Target’s flagship brand. Needless to say, this campaign with bright color suits/separates did receive mixed reviews on the web, so of course I decided to give the blazer a run.

Initially, I purchased (gift from the wife) a size medium in this blazer (that’s my typical off the rack size). When it arrived, the sleeves were too long and the fit (measured at a 36, when most mediums will start their measurements at a 32 inch waist) of the torso was not as “tailored” as perceived from the web. Originally priced at $50, I didn’t see it fit to have it tailored because the end cost would have put this blazer over$100. With Target’s efficient in-store return policy, I exchange this blazer for a small. Once it arrived the length of the sleeves and waist measurement were on point, but, slightly snug in the shoulders (but, I can live with that).

Style Tips:

  • With any bold blazer, white chino/denim and dark denim pair well.
  • Pairing this with white chino/jeans work best for the spring/summer months
  • Incorporating other pieces in the same color family will add some color consistency (see nylon belt).
  • Don’t go overboard in terms of patterns when pairing tops with this type of blazer 
  • It’s a cotton blazer, embrace the wrinkles. Push of the sleeves.
  • T-shirts and tanks are the perfect complement to a cotton blazer

Benefits of this blazer

  • The fabric is light and breathable
  • The colors are eye catching (so if you are looking to get noticed, you’ve found the right blazer).
  • Functional Buttons on the sleeves
  • Double-vented (referring to the back opening)
