Five Ways to Wear the Navy Blazer

How to Spot a Great Suit

A navy blazer is a modern staple of every man’s wardrobe. It is an easy-to-wear item that can be dressed up or dressed down to suit any occasion. Back in January, the guys at Garrison Bespoke had the opportunity to model a few different looks on Breakfast Television, showing the versatility of the navy blazer – and the many different styles it comes in! Since the leaves are going to be falling again very soon, we thought we’d take you down memory lane and remind you how to wear your navy blazer this fall.

Check out the video below to see our stylist’s model five different navy blazer looks on Breakfast Television!

“A navy blazer never goes out of style!”

Here’s a breakdown of the looks:

 1)   The Ultimate Fan Jacket
M. N. wears a custom navy blazer with Toronto Maple Leaf team logo imprinted on the cloth.

Where to wear it:
Hockey is a big part of Canadian heritage! Wear the ultimate fan jacket to the game to support one of our local teams! It’s also great for a night out in the city or cool summer evenings at the cottage.

How to wear it:
Pair the fan jacket with white jeans or chinos. For a more casual look, finish it off with comfortable loafers or tennis shoes.


If you’re interested in something a little more subtle, support our teams by lining your custom navy blazer with your favourite team player’s jersey – like rapper Drake did with former Raptor Vince Carter’s rookie jersey!

 2)   Tweed Navy Blazer
M. L. wears a custom navy tweed jacket with fuchsia detailing underneath the lapel.

Where to wear it:
Great for a night out in the city with the guys or for a casual dinner date.

How to wear it:
Pair your tweed navy blazer with slim cargo pants or chinos (try and avoid jeans). To compliment the season, finish the look off with brown leather boots.


TIP: When wearing a tweed jacket, always reference colours used to weave the cloth when choosing shirts, pants and accessories.

3)   Textured Navy Jacket
D. T. wears a custom navy textured jacket.

Where to wear it:
A textured navy blazer is extremely versatile. Wear one to the office during the day and then straight to dinner in the evening. It’s also great for a weekend getaway or formal events!

How to wear it:
The easiest way to transition from day to night in a navy blazer is with a turtle neck. Wear a cotton (black or burgundy) turtle neck – instead of a shirt and tie – under your blazer for a clean, simple and sharp look. Grey jeans or dark trousers will keep the look sophisticated, while black or brown suede loafers will add more texture!


4)   The Classic Navy Blazer
M. P. wears a custom cotton navy blazer with a single contrasting cream-coloured horn button.

Where to wear: Perfect for the office during the week and for dinner parties on the weekend.

How to wear: Try mixing patterns with a classic grey plaid shirt and paisley tie over charcoal trousers for the office. Monk strap brogues finish off the classic look (try out a pair of Carmina’s sold at Garrison’s flagship!) On the weekend, switch into a dark pair of jeans, a t-shirt and your favourite pair of white sneakers.


5)   The Linen Navy Blazer
J. S. wears a custom linen two-button navy blazer with contrasting cream-coloured horn buttons.

Where to wear: Great for casual work days during the summer or for business lunches. Also, easy to pack for vacations down south or weekend trips to the cottage!

How to wear: Wear your linen navy blazer with printed or coloured chinos if you’re comfortable being a little adventurous – if not, jeans work perfectly. To maintain a casual look, skip the tie and opt for a crisp white open collar shirt. Throw on a pair of brown loafers or tennis shoes to complete the look!
