Desirous: Vivienne Westwood men’s blazer

Normally I’d question the sanity of a men’s three piece suit that isn’t, but for this Vivienne Westwood dark grey, wool suit I’ll make the exception. “Isn’t”, you see, is the key. For what appears to be a mix of blazer and waistcoat is in fact a single piece, the waist coat fused to the blazer to imply layering, and a mix of amber buttons and gold-orb chain fastening the front. Attention grabbing gimmickry yes, but this is a one piece / two piece that has all the details required of a modern men’s suit, from its shoulders to its peaked lapels.

Available solely as a blazer or as a suit, I’d personally forgo the charcoal trousers (their twisted fit and drop crotch are too ‘now’ to offer longevity) and take this Vivienne Westwood spring / summer 2011 blazer as is. Wearable with lighter shades and also, I suspect, utterly sharp as a casual look with dark, slim cut denim, the ‘attached waistcoat’ wool blazer sells for just north of US$900.

Having flown over 590,000 kilometres in a single year (2012), he’s done much to push the boundaries of a fashioniser, always looking to fold one extra Tom Ford suit into his set of Samsonite cases and for one extra occasion to tie a tie for. As much an editor-at-large as he is’s Editor-in-chief, when he's not travelling to all the fashion weeks his passports will allow him to, Daniel works on guiding this publication’s editorial and trend views.
