Blazers are pretty are a wardrobe essential for men. If you don't have one, at least grab a navy one ASAP — the rewards are endless. The thing is, designers don't always create them with practicality in mind.
When the Boston-based apparel company Ministry of Supply designed their latest blazer, practicality was pretty much all they had in mind. Who feels like pressing their clothes or sending them out to be dry cleaned? (No one!) Luckily, the Aviator 2 is suitable to be thrown into the washer. Ever feel constricted and stuffy when you put on a sports coat? Likely because it was designed around the idea of a stationary figure whereas this one, with it's yoke back design, was not.
When you throw in details like the warp fabric — which is moisture-wicking, stretches, and remains wrinkle free — it's a wonder we haven't heard more about the piece. Of course this isn't even taking into account the thoughtful details like a hidden pocket behind the left lapel no one will ever notice. According to the brand, the first Aviator sold out but this one is all yours to try.
And don't forget: if you don't have a blazer already, get the navy one.
