What’s the Difference Between a Blazer and a Suit Jacket?

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.

Here are examples using Judah’s showcase to give you an idea of how they should look.
