Evening, what a sexy blazer I have for you all tonight! I've longed for a boating blazer for years now and finally I have one in my wardrobe, I have to say a big thanks to Madcap for sending me this killer piece! Right, let's get talking, as you can see I've also included some colour photographs too (makes a change) so you guys get to see how bloody amazing this vintage inspired jacket really is! You could say this is more of a Mod-inspired piece and you'll be right, however I've styled it in my own individual way and made it a little more rock n' roll.

The boating blazer has been around since the 1800's, yet only hit the mainstream fashion scene over here in the swinging sixties. The striped boating blazer was a staple item for any mod and still is to this day. However, I've noticed a lot of sporting and club blazers been reinterpreted by brands such as Saint Laurent in 2016, this is when I first became interested in the style. I love the colour palette of this particular jacket, especially the mixture of the two thicker blue stripes in contrast with a thinner yellow retro shade which separates them. Not to mention this blazer fits like a dream!

I originally asked for the blazer in a 38 however, Madcap recommended a 36 as they stated the style was slightly oversized. I decided on the smaller size and I can tell you now it fits me perfectly, it really is one of the best fitting blazers I've ever owned. The shoulders sit exactly where they should, plus the sleeve length feels like its been tailored especially for me! It's oversized curved collar line is the big statement of this jacket, with its killer double breasted button up front, it looks like its come straight out the sixties!

Madcap offer the same style in a more traditional three button style blazer, they also stock some equally killer suit jackets to suit any style for you vintage lovers. I can't wait to wear this out when the summer finally returns to the U.K, this vintage style regatta blazer really will look sweet on a warm summers evening, maybe with an added shirt underneath too!
