No, it won’t make you look like the leader of your own island nation, much less the free world. If you’re looking to add a little extra oomph to an erstwhile pedestrian button-down and slacks combo, however, the President’s Japanese Selvedge Blazer should deliver it in spades.
A structured blazer, it comes in a classic sack-style fit that hangs on the body, so you can use it to hide the bulging tires taking residency on your waist. Yeah, you need to start using that gym membership a little bit more. You can wear it unbuttoned for a loose and relaxed look, as well as button it up for a more formal aesthetic – either way, the thing should complete any non-traditional power outfit nicely.
The President’s Japanese Selvedge Blazer is a single-breasted, mid-weight piece cut in 100 percent cotton. It takes on mostly traditional characteristics, including a notched lapel, a three-button barrel cuff, and a three-button front closure, although the entire jacket is geared towards less-formal ensembles. While the indigo color might make it a little difficult to pair with everything in your closet, it should make the right pieces truly stand out.
Features include a left breast pocket, front patch pockets, a back center seam, a back center vent, and interior selvedge details. Do note, it’s strictly dry-clean, so keep it away from the hamper when dirty.
Available from Need Supply, the President’s Japanese Selvedge Blazer is priced at $323.99.
