Your sports coat is probably the hardest working garment in your wardrobe because of its versatility. Less formal than a suit, but dressier than most casual outfits, you can wear it almost anywhere and exude an air of authority yet transform your look instantly by simply taking it off.

Sling it over your shoulder for a debonair look or score bonus points for sharing it with that special someone. Our point? You can't go wrong with a well-made sport coat in your clothing arsenal.

Business Benefits of Sports Jackets

If your tailored men’s suit would look out of place or you just want to stand apart from the crowd, sports jackets create a positive impression because they are the perfect mixture of preppy, sporty and classy styles.


Additionally, sport coats are perfect for jobs where you move from office to construction site to factory floor. Lastly, there may be times when you just want to dress less formally but project an authoritative aura.

For these occasions, men’s sports jackets give you a dignified, reliable look no matter where they are worn. Just take it off when you want to appear casual and put it back on when necessary for situations such as client presentations, dining engagements, or meetings.

They play Well with Casual Outfits

If you're in the market for play clothes and want to look good without attracting undue attention, make a sports coat your go-to get up.


Their collars and lapels offer an aesthetic delight whether seen on a tailcoat or a safari jacket. In fact, it's the perfect weekend look.

Sports Coats Make You Look Good

Most men look more attractive wearing sports coats than sporting sweatshirts. If you feel wearing a jacket off duty makes you look uptight, the sports coat is the perfect in-between garment.


A sports jacket’s attractiveness offsets any “uptight” look a suit jacket might give onlookers.

Sports Jackets Are Good Investments

Wearing sports coats, however, does not necessarily mean owning a large wardrobe. A blue blazer worn with a variety of outfits can be used on multiple occasions. Adding a few jackets of Harris Tweed and herringbone could give you just the variety you need.

If you need to carry lots of items like pens, phones, cigarettes and so on, sports jackets usually feature a minimum of two inside pockets. Some provide additional pockets for storing pens and cash. The beauty of owning a tailor made coat is you can have as many pockets as you want.

Protecting Your Investment

Avoid putting anything bulky or heavy in one pocket; try to balance the load across pockets so the drape of the jacket does not go askew. While the inside pockets can carry considerable weight without affecting the drape of the fabric, whatever is in them is pressed close to your chest when the jacket is buttoned, so avoid carrying heavy items, like keychains, in them.

If you’ve never owned a custom made sports coat, it’s time to indulge yourself. You deserve it!BOOK YOUR FITTING today and let Montagio’s expert tailors help you create a look that's all your own.
