  1. Sport coat

    A sport coat, sport jacket, also called a sports coat or sports jacket, less commonly sportcoat, is a jacket for men. Though it is of a similar cut and length to a suit jacket, there are several differences. First, a sport may be worn on less formal occasions than a suit would be. Also, it is designed to be worn on its own, without matching trousers, and does not come as part of a suit. Styles, fabrics, colours and patterns are also more varied than in most suits; sturdier and thicker fabrics may be used, such as corduroy, suede, denim, leather, and tweed. Originally, sports coats were worn as casual attire for hunting and other outdoor sports. With time, they came to be used on more formal occasions, sometimes being used in school uniforms as at Summer Fields School in England.
