The Buttons and the Blazers

Filed under: Men's Fashion — Manolo @ 7:49 pm

Manolo says, one of the Manolo’s internet friends has asked the Manolo the question.

I noticed the blazer you linked to has the traditional brass buttons. For some reason, the brass buttons have always bothered me, I prefer the buttons of horn. I find the brass a bit too nautical for my taste, a bit too flashy, and frankly juvenile. However, knowing your impeccable conservative taste, and seeing most of those around me wearing such buttons, I thought that perhaps to wear a blazer without them might be a violation of some unspoken rule. Also, how do you feel about the black blazer and where and in what fashion should one wear such a thing?

Manolo says, it is true that perhaps the brass buttons they are not for the everyone, however, please allow the Manolo to come to the defense of both the lengthy tradition of the brass button, and the need for the occasional flashiness.

Yes, the Manolo he is very conservative with regard to the dressing of the mens, but there are the certain areas where the men they can show a little color and a little flash: the cufflinks, the watch, the ties, and the brass buttons on the blazer.

This little bit of the flash it may not be to your taste, but in the moderation, it is not too much.

Manolo says, few things that the man can wear are as stylish as the well-tailored black cashmere blazer. To the mind of the Manolo, this it is most appropriate for elegant casual wear, perhaps for dining out on the weekend.
