Single-breasted blazers are among the more common type of blazer. Depending on the number of buttons it has, it may be suitable for either business or social settings. It may refer to a coat, jacket or similar garment with only one column of buttons and narrow overlapping flaps.
Blazers with only one button are considered to be very stylish. Though they may not be appropriate for most work environments, they may be acceptable for men who work in a business where suits are not required. Thin men look BEST in this style, but stockier or taller men may find that the way the blazer hangs is not very flattering.
Blazers with two buttons are classics and are universally appropriate for nearly any work environment. The simple cut of a two-button blazer looks good on almost all men. These blazers may not be daring or uncommon, but they’re the BEST basic type of blazer for a man to buy.
This style is most recognizable from pea coats. These blazers have two rows of buttons up the torso, the fronts of the blazer overlapping each other. This overlap adds bulk to the double-breasted style, so some men may find these blazers to be too warm. Double-breasted blazers are generally very conservative and formal. They are a safe bet for business meetings and an office environment.
Tuxedos + Dinner Jackets
Dinner jackets are by far the most formal style of blazer. They are great for evening events and dates. Many of them have shiny or contrasting lapels, which give the blazer a formal yet flashy look. Another lapel variation one will see is a shawl lapel. These, unlike other lapel styles, are made from a single piece of fabric and curve down over a man’s chest. This look is very distinctive and is best for evening events.
Colored & Patterned
The pattern and color of a blazer make just as much of an impact as the cut and style, if not more. The most conservative color choices for a man’s blazer are black, charcoal, gray, and navy blue, while brown is not as conservative. Light beige or off-white blazers are not very common, and most men will see these in linen fabrics. These are good for daytime social events, but linen fabric may be harder to care for. A man who likes to stand out in a crowd will love brighter options, though they are not a good choice for a conservative work environment. Many prefer the middle ground that plaids and stripes provide. These patterns, when done in muted or neutral colors, are conservative enough for casual business settings but interesting enough for a man to feel that he is expressing his own style without being boring.
Blazers also commonly known as sport coats are versatile jackets that may be as formal as a suit or as casual as a light coat and are perfect for many occasions as they easily translates from the office to a night out. However, shopping for a suit or blazer can be very overwhelming for many men or women; there are a myriad of types and styles in endless variations of colors, fabrics, and cuts. But, here at The House of Rose, our master tailors and fashion designers will be more than pleased to walk you through the process of creating a perfectly customized blazer; from the fabric color to the buttonhole color, we’re here for you!

Wool is the most familiar fabric for suits, so it is often used to make blazers. These breathe well and drape nicely. Blazers made from wool are often tailored like suit jackets and will have a professional appearance.
Cotton, like wool, is also often used to make suit jackets. It breathes as well as wool, however it is a lighter fabric. This quality makes it preferred for warm weather.
Linen, like cotton, is a lightweight natural material. It breathes well and is best for warm weather. Linen has a distinct look, which many like. They are popular for social settings, though linen is wrinkled very easily and may be more difficult to maintain.
Blends are a combination of a natural fiber, like cotton, wool, or silk, and a synthetic fiber. These blazers have many of the good qualities of the natural fibers, like breath-ability and a high quality look. But because they are not 100 percent natural fibers, they are also cheaper. Blends are a good option for most men because they are more affordable yet also feel and look nice.
Silk blazers have all of the benefits of other natural fiber fabrics: They are highly breathable, and they are extremely comfortable and soft. However, many people believe that silk blazers look the best out of the other natural fibers. Men shopping for silk blazers will find higher prices, so this fabric is best for men who want to buy a single, high quality blazer to wear to different occasions or for work.
Corduroy is commonly made from cotton, but the name refers to a distinct way of weaving the fabric that involves forming soft ridges in parallel lines. Corduroy blazers are more casual and can often be unlined, which gives them less structure. This soft, warm fabric is great for fall and winter months, and it can be casual without seeming sloppy.
Leather blazers are very warm. Often, leather used in a blazer style is worn more as a jacket for warmth than as a part of an outfit, and leather blazers are not appropriate for an office. However, leather blazers are very stylish. High quality leather jackets are extremely soft, and most leather is also treated to be water repellent, something that other blazer materials cannot offer. Leather blazers are also more expensive than basic fabric ones, so a man choosing a leather blazer for a stylish jacket will need to be certain that he will not need a more versatile fabric blazer.

There are many reasons to recommend a bespoke suit. There is the consultation, where you’re invited to sit and sip on fine wine from Oregon’s wine country or whiskey from Portland’s finest distilleries while browsing through our highest quality fabric samples from around the World.

What does “bespoke” mean?
“Bespoke” simply means, “to be spoken for”. It is a term that may be used for any type of customization among any field of production. When it comes to Bespoke tailoring, the pattern is cut from the client’s measurements and then put together by a seasoned tailor.
What’s the turn-around time for a custom suit?
If the tailoring of the suit is outsourced, then the production time will take a lot longer and most places take about 6-8 weeks to get your suit back to you. However, since all of the productions at The House of Rose are done in-house, turnaround time is cut significantly down. After your initial consultation and measuring, our turnaround time is 2-4 weeks. A rush order may be placed, however certain fees will be assessed.
What is the average cost of a custom suit?
The price of a custom suit is calculated based on the amount of hours in labor plus the cost of the fabric. Average labor is about 30-50 hours, depending on how intricate the piece and most prices range between $1,100 all the way up to $4,000. At The House of Rose, we offer a variety of different grades to suit nearly everyone’s budget with endless possibilities in designs. We work with our customers to offer unmatched quality at an unmatched price. Where are your suits produced?
Where are your suits produced?

It means that each cut, stitch, and hand picking is done right at our production location in the heart of Oregon City, while taking pride in sourcing most of our fabrics locally and supporting the local businesses.
Can you help me decide what fit or style is best for me?
Our goal, Is not only to make you look and feel amazing, but also to educate you about your personal body type and what works best with your features. The House of Rose staff takes attentive care to talk about your concerns and to offer the appropriate solutions.
What is the process for ordering a custom suit?
As you may have noticed, this website does not serve the purpose for ordering a suit. It is for your educational purposes and so that you may familiarize yourself with our process. This is due to the fact that we at The House of Rose believe that building strong and lasting relationships with our clients plays an important part in the production of each individual piece. First we start out with a consultation, which is booked by appointment only. We take some time to discuss what it is you are looking for in particular, along with special design requests and so forth. After your measurements have been taken they are immediately sent to production. One or more fittings may be necessary for special cases.
What type of style options do I have control over?
Everything. You dream it – We create it.
Will my suit fit perfectly the first time?
That is the whole point of bespoke – a suit that feels like a second skin. If it does not fit perfectly upon completion, we will take excellent care to ensure all necessary changes are made.
Can I bring you my own fabric to make a suit?
If there is fabric that you would like to have us use, you may bring it. All that we ask is that you bring enough yardages to complete what it is you are ordering. In that case, you will only be charged for the labor of making your suit.
What if I need my suit before the standard production time?
At The House of Rose we offer a rush delivery option with production finished in under 2 weeks. Certain fees are assessed and discussed with our managers upon request.
I have ordered custom shirts from you before. Can I get a suit made based on those measurements?
We keep all measurements on file for up to 3 months; if your measurements are older than that we ask that you be re-measured to ensure a perfect fit.
