43. Unstructured Sportcoats

As dudes started to dress up more, comfort and class met halfway. The unstructured sportcoat took the familiar silhouette of the blazer, and removed padding at areas like the chest and shoulder, resulting in a versatile garment that looked as good dressed up with a proper pair of trousers and sensible shoes, but also enhanced a solid T-shirt, jeans, and your favorite pair of sneakers. Go-to brands included obscure European labels like L.B.M. 1911 and Boglioli, and blogged-about favorites like Engineered Garments and Our Legacy.
