Design Overview: The Commuter Blazer


It doesn’t matter where you begin or end your day, but rather what happens in between. The twists and turns leading you to your next adventure are what’s important and getting you there looking sharp and feeling comfortable is our obsession. Enter our new Commuter Blazer. Everyone knows that good apparel design starts with fabric so we searched to find something that performed but also had the drape and hand of a natural fiber. Many technical fabrics lack elegance and look, well, technical.

For this piece, we started with an elegant Italian stretch cotton blended with nylon which we treated with a durable water repellent (DWR) finish; Stylish, sophisticated, and modern, the 50% cotton, 43% nylon and 7% elastane blend provides amazing durability (nylon), outstanding comfort (elastane / cotton), and the look and hand of natural fibers (cotton). And, it’s now made entirely in the USA, a feature Mr. Dusseau himself would be proud of. We know you will, too.



From a design perspective, our chief goal was to maintain a slim, fashion forward silhouette while giving you maximum movement throughout the garment. Stretch fabric helps, but so does smart tailoring. We think we’ve accomplished the goal and can’t wait to hear your feedback. Technical details like reflective collars and cuffs and functional sleeve plackets carry over from our previous Commuter Suit Jacket. Added are Italian snap hardware in the front and sleeve plackets and performance locking pull tab zippers. Form and function, fused.


Wherever you go, however you go, we’ve got you covered. Go ahead; ride to work, head to the kids’ soccer game, and then jump on a plane bound for Singapore. With one blazer to rule them all, you won’t have to skip a beat (or change). Road grime and a light sprinkle? No problem. This commuter piece will get you there. Your only plan? Where to go next. Available now, the Commuter Blazer is offered in two sophisticated colors: Navy and Granite. Free shipping when you spend $150 or more. First time customers receive 20% off.
