Izzy was quite annoyed by the juvenile, snarky tone of this New York Times article on Brooks Brothers, but when the author referred to a “blazer in an understated Harris tweed,” the jig was up. By definition, the proper fabric of a blazer, which is not at all synonymous with a sport jacket, is serge or hopsack, definitely not tweed. (And unlike a sport jacket, a blazer always has metal buttons.) Brooks Brothers’ standards may be on the rise, but the Times’ is clearly slipping.
