Despite this being the era of baggy suits and oversized formalwear, slim-fit blazers aren't going anywhere anytime soon. Why, you ask? Because they're an absolute staple in menswear—what other layering piece adds such instant put-together vibes with little to no effort?

Slim-fit blazers just look sharper, sleeker, and dressier than a looser fit. Not to mention, they're quite flattering, too—something about a tailored fit with defined shoulders and a slim silhouette will always work, whether you're pairing your blazer with jeans and sneakers or dress pants and loafers. It's a classy style, and it's one that your closet definitely needs.

Below, the 10 best slim-fit blazers on the market are here to make your wardrobe cooler and sleeker than ever. You can go for a lightweight option, perfect for the summer months—J.Crew's seersucker option or PRL's linen style will be great for that. You can go for something more traditionally formal, like the herringbone option from Todd Snyder, or Incotex's sophisticated navy blazer. And if you really want to add some drip to your wardrobe, there's always Celine Homme's slim-fit blazer, with crystal-embellished pinstripes worthy of a leading man.

Ludlow Slim-Fit Unstructured Suit Jacket

Naturally, J.Crew has a damn sleek, chic, slim-fitting blazer. This one is perfect for spring and summer, too, thanks to its lightweight seersucker fabric. Don't be afraid to pair with jeans or khakis.

How do you style a slim-fit blazer?

The beauty in a slim-fit blazer is how versatile it is. Some that are more formal will require dress pants and dress shoes to look good, but for the most part, you can probably wear a slim-fit blazer with jeans, loafers, and potentially even a hoodie underneath. A graphic tee never hurt anybody, either.

What should I look for in a slim-fit blazer?

When it comes to selecting the perfect slim-fit blazer, pay close attention to the fabric and features. Not all slim-fit blazers are made alike—if you're looking for one for summer, for instance, you'll be. much better off with linen or seersucker than you would be with wool or herringbone.

Depending on how you like your blazer to look and feel, you might opt for things like a double-vent, or padded shoulders, or partial lining. Make sure you check out what your blazer comes with before buying.

Why You Can Trust Esquire

We’re not going to say something is great unless it’s actually great. Every product in Esquire’s round-ups is carefully curated by our fashion and e-commerce teams.

When it comes to slim-fit blazers, you can rest assured that we’re hand-selecting styles that we’ve personally tested, tried, and loved, along with styles that the rest of our stylish colleagues here at Esquire endorse for their own wear. We’ve had to go through a lot of trial and error, and these blazers are the ones that are simply the best.

Every pick on this list (and our other lists!) comes from years of wearing different things, seeing what we love and what we don’t, and going from there. No two tastes are the same, and no two men are the same. Your proverbial mileage may vary. But if you’re looking for the right place to start, with advice from folks who and care (possibly too much!) about this sort of stuff, this is the place to be.
