1. What's the difference between a sport coat and a blazer? They look the same to me...

    The God Nick Sullivan answered this exact question in a piece he did for the Esquire How-To Style Guide.  In America, it has basically become a matter of semantics.  But if you care so much as to need a cheat sheet, you can break it down to it’s most basic elements as this: 

    • Blazer = patch-pockets; occasional gold or silver buttons.
    • Sport coat = flap pockets and resembles the suit jacket but for the fact that it doesn’t come with matched pants and is more rustic and earthy (anything from tweed to cashmere) than the more formal suit jacket.
