Spring Preview – Paul Smith Blazers

Spring is almost around the corner and it may be time to upgrade your blazer collection. British designer, Paul Smith, recently released his spring collection of cotton and linen blazer via the Neiman Marcus Men’s Shop (at the King of Prussia Mall). Working with Neiman Marcus in the King of Prussia Mall, I had the opportunity to style a few looks with these Paul Smith blazers for a bit of spring inspiration.

When the temperature starts to heat up outside and you want to find a blazer that will keep you cool, these blazers are a great option. All of the blazers in this collection are quarter-lined, which will easily keep you from over heating. The fits are well-tailored and are cropped just a bit shorter than your standard blazer for a modern feel. Also, Paul Smith has released some great short-sleeved button up shirts that pair well with his new collection of blazers.

Tips to styling your Paul Smith Blazers –

  • Pair your blazers with denim, shorts and dress pants (example below)
  • Don’t be afraid to push the sleeves up
  • Use the bold color blazer to amp up your usual spring style (example below)
  • Mix patterns. Mix your shadow-plaid blazer with gingham shirt (example below)
  • Add a pocket square (example below)
  • Pair these blazers with short-sleeved, long-sleeved and t-shirts
  • Don’t take your looks so serious. Remember they are just clothes. Have some fun with your style.

    Very nice man, very nice. Glad to see your getting some recognition for your blogging efforts. I’ve been a steady follower for some time, you’re doing great work…

      Thanks for following and the kind words. There is a fair amount of work that goes into this and it’s cool to see the rewards.

    Nice job. I’m lovin’ the last look especially. The plaid coat and gingham shirt work really well.

    • February 7, 2012 at 9:22 AM #

      The last look might be my favorite piece that I put together.

      • February 7, 2012 at 10:49 AM #

        i agree the last two looks are well coordinated and great photography as well brother.

    Great looks, Sabir! The site gets more impressive every time. I’ve been looking for dark wash jeans with that particular look. Do you mind sharing the brand and style of the jeans in the second look?

      Hi Keaton,

      Thanks for dropping by and for the continued support. These jeans are Levi’s 521 (Slim Taper style). They can be found via

        No, thank you for continuing the great writing and helping all the rest of us out. Wow, I thought they were J Brand or APCs. That’s really good to know that Levi’s makes something almost identical at a much better price point. Thanks again, Sabir.

    Hey Sabir…it’s been months – hope all is good.

    This by far has to be the best post you have ever done. Each and every look is on point – I would wear EVERY one of them!

    Very strong, my friend, very strong.

      It has been a while since you’ve been around these parts. Thanks for the compliment. Men’s Style Pro is going strong and hopefully continues to get better.

    Can you recommend any blazers similar to the Paul Smith Gingham Check Cotton Blazer with functioning cuff buttons that are at a cheaper price point? Thanks!

    Hey man. I love those Prada emarld green loafers., where can I find them please?

    • May 14, 2012 at 10:48 PM #

      Hi Ali,

      These particular Prada loafers were available at the Neiman Marcus store at the King of Prussia Mall (just outside of Philadelphia). If they have them in store still, you can call and have them shipped to you. Just a side note, these shoes run a 1.5 size larger than listed. I wear a 10m in all shoes, but, these are a 8.5 in the photos.
