[Craving] Smythe Blazers

On the quest to hone in on the absolute essential wardrobe pieces it became clear to me how crucial a few good blazers are to be able to piece the perfect outfit together. When I looked at my favourite stylish ladies (Miranda Kerr, Olivia Palermo, Erin Wasson) I realised the piece that often brings the look together is a well fitted jacket - be it a bolero boucle or a sturdy navy-with-gold-buttons jobby.  For the latter, I stumbled upon Canadian brand Smythe a few months ago, as it is run by an old client's sister...

Traditionalists as I like to call them (ie: women who allow time to grow without massively changing their style, or allowing their taste to fade) such as HRH Kate and Gwyneth Paltrow have been fans for years - the brand is available in the UK at Matches, and their own online store here. Here are two pictures of Kate that show how navy blazers (incidentally from Smythe) can be used to dress up and dress down:


Their coats and jackets are literally the most gorgeous things ever - and very warm (I hear Canada gets pretty damn cold which may explain the need for tweed). They also have a fab range of weekend casual/just damn cool clothes too - but for now, I'm honing in on the blazers. Smythe have it all nailed - from the classic Little Black Jacket, to the herringbone classic, to the white tuxedo. Frig-me, I love it all...



Smythe have absolutely every jacket you could ever wish for - and I will be doing exactly that for the next few weeks with my birthday coming up.  I'm sorry to push such a pricey purchase under your nose right after pay day (just when you are feeling flush) but trust me, you cannot go wrong with one of these...

I do love a good blazer and there are plenty of great ones on the site. I quite like the tweed ones (think the red elbows make it!).

Maybe a future payday purchase...

I love Smythe blazers. They always look so well fitted and really are a classic cut. I've never personally tried one on, but I would love to give one a try -- especially if they are nice and warm :)

Smythe is without a doubt my favourite brand for jackets - their designs are absolutely exquisite. The tailoring, the fabric, the fixtures... everything is perfect. I'm still saving up but one day, one of these beauties will be mine!
