32 - 58

The Kai blazer is fairly loose cut, but can be tightened with a belt to accentuate the waist. You can pair this blazer with collar, lapels and bluff patch pockets with the Peaches trousers. Make the blazer and trousers in the same colour so that you're on the same page as the monochrome trend. 

Fabric advice

You can make the Kai blazer in a synthetic fabric, such as polyester or polyviscose. The good thing about these is that they don’t wrinkle. However, a disadvantage is that they don’t ‘breathe’, which means they don’t allow sweat through like natural fabrics (such as cottons, linens, or wool fabrics like tweed, flannel and delicate virgin wool). Use a solid fabric in a pastel or in a more vibrant colour (denim, yellow, green, etc.) or go for a print fabric. If you’d like to make a classic out of the blazer, be sure to go for a nice Glen check.
