Studying men’s wardrobe, there are not many things that make a man attractive and elegant. One of these wardrobe items can be called a sports jacket. It is worth wearing it on a classic or casual shirt and people around you will immediately note your excellent style and image.

A sports jacket or casual jacket, as it were, balances between a strict business dress code and business casual style, remaining “its” in both cases. Of course, this is very convenient, especially if you like comfort, and the rules of the company or society require compliance with the dress code.

Why Sports Jacket?

A well-selected size and, most importantly, correctly sewn jacket, according to the man’s torso, can make a little fat man slim, and too thin – larger. This is especially noticeable if you pay attention to the width of the shoulders and back of the sports jacket, which clearly stand out the masculine features.

The jacket is very comfortable and functional. As a rule, a sports jacket is made of warm materials, so it will warm you up in cold winters. In addition, the jacket has a lot of pockets for storing small things, phones, purses, and so on. It’s great, because it’s very uncomfortable to wear things in narrow trousers, and sometimes you want to leave your briefcase at home.

A casual jacket makes you stand out from the crowd. As a rule, all fabrics have an interesting/unusual color and pattern. You will have new opportunities to diversify your image with colored accessories that match the shade of your sports jacket. For example, choose a colorful handkerchief or knitted tie.

How Should A Sports Jacket Fit

A sports jacket is a more casual version of a suit jacket or even a blazer. There is an opinion that a casual jacket should sit more loosely than a classic jacket, but not everyone supports this statement.
