The Indigo
Blazer

  •  
    A note on fit: Some guys might shy away from the standard sizing, but fear not: The small fits like a 38R, the medium is more of a 40R, the large is a bit larger than a 42, etc.

$348 (with free shipping),
by Apolis

It's dapper, comfortable and hard-wearing. In other words, exactly what you want out of a good fall jacket. Made in America by the gents at Apolis from a deep navy wool flecked with texture, this blazer is tailored with a 3/2 roll, narrow notched lapel and finished with buffalo horn buttons. So many unstructured, soft-shouldered jackets are cut from a lightweight cotton, which means they can't be worn past the spring and summer. This one is crafted from the same wool as their popular chore coat—a hearty, yet breathable slubby wool that's woven exclusively for Apolis in Italy. It's then dyed with two different variations of natural indigo, which gives it slight variations in color and allows it to subtly fade and wear-in over time. There's also plenty of pocket space and a body-hugging fit that renders the jacket wearable with everything from your 9-to-5 shirt and ties to more rugged pieces like cargos and a sweatshirt. What's more, you're getting a quality crafted piece for more of a mass brand price.
