For my money, a navy blazer is one of the best sartorial investments a guy can make. (Well, that and a great pair of shoes, but right now I’m thinking above the ankle line.) This specimen from Rag & Bone is a great example of the form, tweaked to be at once more modern and more subtle than the one your grandfather wore. The hue is turned down to a deep, dark navy, and the classic (but shiny!) brass buttons have supplanted by a tonally consistent set in matte blue. It’s also—thankfully—shorter and slimmer than the country club versions. But what hasn’t changed is just as important as what has. Hand-constructed in NYC at master tailor Martin Greenfield’s factory, this jacket is may be a staunchly modern piece, but it’s rooted in an abiding regard for traditional tailoring and workmanship.
