Believe it or not, the blazer actually began as athleticwear. Part of the uniform worn by rowers at Cambridge and Oxford universities, it soon found its way into the wardrobes of the entire student body, even making its way across the Atlantic to America's Ivy League schools. With its sporty yet polished construction, it's just about the most versatile piece of tailoring in a person's closet. And you no longer have to row a boat to wear it.
We went to Connecticut's storied American Woolen Company mill (est. 1899) to find the refined, year-round-weight wool for our updated Ludlow Legacy blazer, and we made it with the quality construction our Ludlows are famous for, but with a lighter, partial lining to increase breathability and keep you comfortable all year round. We also swapped the typical brass buttons for our elegant Ludlow buttons, used a topstitching detail instead of pickstitching (so it's a little more casual but still polished) and gave it a partial Bemberg lining to make it easier to take on and off. If you only have one blazer, it should be this one.
