The Curated Classic Camel Blazer Review

The Curated Classic Camel Blazer Review

As you know, I love my camel & teddy coats from The Curated. One of the brand’s latest silhouettes is their take on the oversized blazer. This style is offered in a traditional suiting-weight material and a thicker, more substantial wool/cashmere blend. The latter intrigued me, as it looked warm without the bulk of a full-sized coat. If you’re also looking at their Classic Camel Blazer, I hope you find this review helpful!

I have always been a fan of blazers – in the early 2010’s, I gravitated towards the cropped variety that were trendy a la Helmut Lang. However, I haven’t worn them as much these past few years. Not because I disliked the style, but because I couldn’t quite figure out how to wear them without being too hot or too cold in the always-slightly-chilly San Francisco weather.

Enter the latest oversized wool blazer trend – perfect for layering with sweaters in West Coast fall and winter.

Material

I love the material of this blazer. It is a super soft 10% cashmere / 90% merino wool blend that is almost as thick as their Classic Coat material. That being said, there isn’t a ton of heft or weight with this wool – it feels like a lightweight blazer. The natural silk lining provides great breathability, and overall this feels very comfortable for extended periods of time.

Note: The Classic Camel Blazer is different from their Classic Blazer – the latter is more like your traditional suiting material in the same oversized silhouette.

Fit & Sizing

I knew this was more of a relaxed fit and ordered an XS, my normal size. This is the perfect size for layering one of my Naadam cashmere sweaters underneath with zero mobility issues. However, I can still wear a simple long-sleeved tee (as shown) and not feel overwhelmed by the silhouette. If I could change one thing, I do wish the sleeves were a smidge tighter, but this is not a dealbreaker for me.

Overall, I am very pleased with this blazer. It easily elevates any outfit without being too buttoned-up, and provides decent warmth to boot.

As with their Teddy coat, I pre-ordered this style about two months before it shipped. I don’t mind this process, as it helps reduce overall production waste. While my XS size is sold out, they still have Small & Medium available on the website. Additionally, there is an official Curated Facebook group where ladies (or gents, of course) post their pre-loved Curated coats for sale.
