As the cool weather rolls in, guys are throwing on snappy blazers over their usual jeans and tees. The boys on the street show us the look can run the gamut from sharp sophisticate to downtown mod. In Paris, a trendy check button-up is toned down under a grey wool waistcoat and matching fitted jacket. Black jeans and fresh loafers in an offbeat colour add just the right amount of charm. In Berlin and Stockholm, the innocuous bow-tie dappers up the classic black blazer worn with cuffed jeans. The warm-toned tan blazer is automatically more casual, but in visually structural herringbone and with a serious tie, a New York gentleman easily pulls off wearing jeans to work. The same colour now, oversized or in bold houndstooth? More street corner punk than corner office chuck.
