The jacket appears to have metal buttons. Would this be considered a blazer? Or does it walk the line somewhere between sport coat and blazer? Either way I like it too.
I've never stopped to consider the question of what distinguishes a sport coat from a blazer. Is it metallic buttons? If so, then I guess my glen plain jacket with metallic buttons must be a blazer.

That's always been how I discriminated. Blazers also can have MOP buttons and look quite smashing. As to the youngster in the plaid? Well, he's sitting next to a river so if it's the Thames, yeah, he's in a blazer. A punting enthusiast, I suspect.

Thanks for that. Guess I still own a blazer then. Of course, years back I also owned the proverbial navy blazer.

The glen plaid blazer I still have is gold with brown striping and was thrifted. The tag indicated it was made for the D Fine clothier in the Mirage casino in Las Vegas. Is and was in great shape. Too bad I've had no occasion to wear it since retiring.
