If you’re buying a blazer for a special occasion, then the question is probably going to be, ‘Why do blazers cost so much?’ The most obvious answer is, ‘Because they’re expensive!’ But if you look closely at the reasons why blazers are so expensive then you may find that the answer to your question is more complex than you initially assumed. The reasons are many and are dependent on factors such as fabric, design, cut and length of blazer.
Blazers are generally considered to be formal wear, and it’s almost impossible to walk down a street today without seeing at least one woman wearing one. They are therefore one of the most important pieces of clothing that women can own. As such, it’s not surprising that they tend to be quite expensive and that they don’t come cheap.
If you want to buy a blazer for an occasion, then you need to make sure that you get one that is made from good quality material. This is because, as stated above, they are all meant to be formal wear and will be worn for a long time. You want to get a blazer that is going to last and that will be a durable investment. There are a number of different fabric types which can be used in making a blazer, including tweed, corduroy, wool and other types of materials.
So if you want to buy a blazer that is made from high quality fabric, you’ll have to pay a premium price. This is often the case with designer fabrics that aren’t widely available. However, even though designer fabrics may cost you a bit more money, you should be able to find some cheap ones that can look pretty similar, if not exactly the same as the designer ones.
Another thing you need to look at when buying a blazer is how the style is cut. It’s often thought that women who wear a longer coat usually look better in the trousers than they do in a shorter one. This is because a longer coat looks more formal and lends itself to having a longer trouser, and this helps to create a balance. If you are buying a blazer for your wedding or christening then you don’t necessarily have to buy the longest one; a much better option is to opt for a blazer, which is a little shorter than you would like it to be.
Another reason why blazers tend to be so expensive is that they are usually very well-made. Therefore, they won’t look cheap if they break or tear or need a repair. as this is why many people want to go with cheaper alternatives such as less expensive fabric for their blazers. You should therefore look out for good quality material that has been used in making the blazer. When choosing the material, always ensure that it’s a good quality.
Lastly, it’s worth asking yourself why you’re buying a blazer. The answers may vary from person to person, but they include, ‘I need a blazer for my daughter’s school prom’ to ‘I’m buying one for my husband.’ Obviously, the kind of occasion that you’re buying the blazer for will have a big influence on this, but other factors include the colour and design of the blazer. If you are purchasing the blazer for a wedding, then you may not want to buy one that is too traditional and you should buy a blazer that matches the overall theme of the wedding; for instance, if you are going for a church wedding you may need to purchase a black blazer.
The reason why blazers tend to be expensive also goes some way to explaining why they are so rarely purchased by women for their own use. If you’re buying a blazer to impress someone else, it may make sense to go for something cheaper, but if you’re just buying one for yourself, then it’s far more sensible to buy something a little more expensive. However, if you’re buying a blazer for yourself as a gift for a loved one, then you have to weigh up the pros and cons of getting it from the same shop where you buy your everyday clothes from, but you don’t have to break the bank to get it.
