    Slim Fit Blazer, Always The Best Fit?

    I've been hearing plenty of advocating that blazers looks best when its slim fit.

    I do agree that slim fit usually look the best, but is it always the case?

    If so, should all regular and loose-fitting blazers be forbidden?

    Any input appreciated!

    A blazer should nearly always hug your frame.

    Exceptions (in my humble view):

    - Double-breasted can be worn a bit less slim, but they should still frame the contours of your body
    - very unstructured casual blazers should be slim but you can ignore some of the traditional rules of tailoring a bit more with regard to length and such

    They should always fit your body nicely, the current trend is for slim / skinny and I don't see that changing for a while

    The 90's oversized thing is coming back a bit but I just don't think it looks good

    At Pin Money: 90's oversized jackets are horrendous!

    To be honest I think different styles of blazer suit different body types and frames. As an example, if you have a slim to average body type then slim fit blazers will probably suit you, whereas if you have a larger or more athletic body type, a looser fitted style will probably suit you best. I agree with the rest of you when it comes to over sized nineties style blazers, they don't look good on anyone. No matter who you are, you can't beat a fitted tailored blazer.

    Yes. Blazers do look best slim. However, It is a matter of your personal preference.

    Once again I have to agree with Pin Money on this one i dont see the slim fit look going away anytime soon especially with the celebrity world endorsing it so heavily, but thats not to say its for everyone it all depends on what your going to feel comfortable in. Personally i love the slim fit blazer look with the slim fit trousers and a skinny tie i think it gives off a sophisticated image.
