The Cashmere Blazer

Previously, I have mentioned that corduroy and tweed blazers are great options for the fall season. They provide great insulation and when worn during the right season it shows all the tell tale signs of a sartorially inclined gentleman. However, one option that is very underestimated is the cashmere blazer. Cashmere wool is a fiber obtained from cashmere goats and other types of goat. The fabric is fine in texture, strong, light, and soft. They also provide excellent insulation, which is why they make such great scarves and sweaters.

This double-breasted, peaked lapel, double vented blazer was one of the thrift store finds that I came across last month. The fabric is so soft and comfortable that it almost feels like a second skin. One of the best features about wearing a cashmere blazer is that you do not necessarily need an overcoat, since it already keeps you warm. Therefore, a silk scarf and a knitted wool tie is all you really need once the mercury levels on thermometers start to dip.
