The New Breed Of Blazer - In Manila

Gone are the conventional, corporate-looking, too formal blazers!

If you happen to be around the malls recently you'll definitely notice that men's fashion here in Manila continuous to evolve. Before, Men's fashion in Manila only offers either baggy shirts and pants or Daddy outfits (you know what I mean). Now, Form-fitting clothes and bright colors are acceptable in local men's fashion. Now, we have plenty of styles to choose from, that is being offered by different clothing brands. New and updated versions of clothing articles are now very much visible to our local shops, thanks to the western fashion's influence and to the local designers who create something new out of what is already available.

A perfect example of a clothing article whose style and design is currently being updated by international and local designers, is the Blazer. Blazers like a typical accessory can make or break your ensemble. But with the birth of the new "breed" of blazers, you will definitely have less fashion fails!

Details Magazine recently featured sets of new and updated versions of blazers for men!

 PS You can always get the look above and even get a good blazer without spending a lot of money. As I say in the opener, there are several local brands which offers the same (if not better) styles for blazers here in Manila. You just have to be patient in browsing and looking for those stores!

  1. blazers make men look sharp. but i am not sure where you can get cheap blazers with that style. i think you can buy some local brands but some of them needs further alterations to fit nicely...

    nice blog btw. :D
