Because men’s sports coats are more casual than blazers or suits, it is likely your garment of choice for business casual or informal social events. Its stylish, relaxed aura bridges the wardrobe gap of formal and business only attire. Here's our advice on rocking your sport coat.

The origins of the modern sports coats can be tracked back to those times when most men wore jackets and ties exclusively. In fact, they were not considered to be appropriately dressed if they weren't wearing a jacket. Today, they are widely accepted for casual wear and come in many colours and patterns such as:

  • Tweed
  • Corduroy
  • Flannel
  • Silk
  • Linen
  • Seersucker

Business Casual Attire

Many men are employed in occupations that don't require them to wear jackets regularly; they might only need a jacket ortailor made men's suit when there is an important meeting or a presentation.


Even if your idea of business casual is khakis or dress slacks, a shirt, and maybe a necktie or sweater, wearing a jacket enhances your appearance and give you a sharper look. For example, a sports coat with a gray or brown pattern can be matched with lots of other garments and thus is very versatile.

Informal Social Events Attire

Invitations to social events with vague or unspecified dress codes can cause you to stress about what to wear, especially if you don't know what your host will wear. However, when you wear a sports coat, you always make a good impression and show your respect for your host.

When invited to someone's house, church or club, you should look presentable and project a stylish appearance. Although you may be the only one wearing a jacket, people will appreciate the fact that you cared enough to wear one.


If you do feel out of place, you can always take it off. However, the truly stylish man achieves casualness with his words and demeanour while maintaining dignity in his dress. In short, you do not need to wear your men's suit for every social occasion.

Wardrobe Essentials

It is a good idea to keep one or two sports jackets in your wardrobe as they are a good investment to enhance your style quotient. Classic patterns never go out of style, and a custom tailored sports coat rarely makes you feel out of place.


The golden rule for when to wear a sports jacket? If you're unsure of what to wear, or when you want to dress better but don't know where to start, opting for a sports jacket can be the smartest move. Another wise move is topop in our Sydney showroom to browse our sports collection or to let your fingers do the clicking, and check out some samples.
