Ever wonder if you should have a blazer over a suit jacket or perhaps what the difference really is? Well it’s actually a bit subtle, yet once you know, you won’t help but notice.
The main difference is that suit jackets have matching slacks and the buttons are the same color. A blazer, however, has buttons that can contrast or compliment the fabric. The other significant distinction is a blazer may be half lined whereas a suit jacket should be fully lined. They both need to fit properly but the blazer can be paired with many different pants, making it far more versatile.
