The reefer jacket was of naval origin, and described the short double-breasted jacket worn by sailors in harsh weather, when they performed duties such as reefing the sails.
OUTERWEAR + BLAZERS
They are truly the ultimate year-round staple piece. A blazer is a type of jacket resembling a suit jacket , but cut more casually. A blazer is generally distinguished from a sport coat as a more formal garment and tailored from solid colour fabrics. Blazers often have naval-style metal buttons to reflect their origins as jackets worn by boating club members.
A blazer's cloth is usually durable, as it is intended as outdoor wear. Blazers are often part of a uniform that denotes, for example, an airline's employees, pupils of a particular school, members of sports clubs, or sportsmen and women on a particular team. Blazers are worn with a wide variety of other clothes, ranging from a dress shirt and necktie to an open-necked polo shirt, or even just a plain T-shirt.
They are seen with trousers of all colours and fabrics , from the classic white cotton or linen , to grey flannel , to brown or beige chinos , and also jeans. A fitted, classically cut, double-breasted navy blue blazer with navy-style buttons is a popular design and sometimes referred to as a "reefer" blazer. Particularly in North America and the United Kingdom, it is now frequently used in business casual attire.
Blazers, in a wide range of colours, are worn as part of school uniforms by many schools across the Commonwealth , and are still daily wear for most uniformed pupils in Britain, Australia and New Zealand. These are blazers in the traditional sense: This style is also worn by some boat clubs, such as those in Cambridge or Oxford , with the piped version used only on special occasions such as a boat club dinner. In this case, the piping is in college colours , and college buttons are worn.
This traditional style can be seen in many films set in the Edwardian era, such as Kind Hearts and Coronets. Where the blazer is part of the dress of a school, college, sports club, or armed service regimental association veterans' organization , it is normal for a badge to be sewn to the breast pocket. In schools, this badge may vary according to the pupil's standing in the school: In the British Commonwealth, many regimental associations wear "regimental blazers" which also sport a similar badge on the breast pocket, usually in the form of a wire badge, and sometimes also regimental blazer buttons.
In the British army, officers do not normally wear badges on their blazers or boating jackets. Two regimental blazers will rarely be the same, as they are sourced from different civilian suppliers and are not issued by any authority.
