Fashion Fact #41- The Blazer

Blazer: The term blazer comes from the red blazers of the 1825 rowing club at St. John’s College, Cambridge (Lady Margaret Boat Club). Today, a blazer is very similar to a suit coat but it has a more casual cut. The cloth is usually durable because technically it is an outdoor sports coat.  Today blazers are popular among both men and women.
