History

The term and the idea of blazers formed from the Lady Margeret Boat Club which was located in Cambridge. Later, it was worn by HMS Blazer’s crew members. Striped blazers continued their popularity during the 1960s and 1970s because of the British Mod movement. In any case, they got beyond their discovery, and beyond sports clubs, only to become a common piece of clothing in modern fashion.


Usage

Blazers come in a variety of colors and are worn as part of school uniforms. Each culture has shaped its own school blazer in a unique way. For example, British students gave the clothing its first rebirth in the 1950s. “It became fashionable to have your initials in Roman characters on the breast pocket,” says Mickey Modern from London. Apart from school attire, blazers are the prominent and visible images of formality. From job interviews to conferences, people resort to blazers for a professional look.
