However, the Games Blazer Mk. III doesn’t have those issues. It’s a relaxed and – perhaps more importantly – useful garment, with a wealth of pockets and an easy-wearing appeal. You can wear it to a restaurant, or a bar, or even the pub, and no one is likely to bat an eyelid, whereas popping into your local in a fully-canvassed wool DB might draw some attention (however, if that is your thing then you have our full support).
To add a further element of relaxed style to the mix, we have made the Mk. III in a trio of Irish linens, which have been garment-dyed, and then washed for that worn-in charm. As our Creative Director, Michael Hill, put it: ‘When you take a DB and remove the structure completely, you get this wonderful juxtaposition of high and low. It retains that timeless appeal, but becomes something a little more slouchy, a little more easy to approach.’
