Two regimental blazers will rarely be the same, as they are sourced from different civilian suppliers and are not issued by any authority.

The standard colour is navy blue, although in some associations different colours are worn, such as rifle green for the associations of rifle regiments. Blazers, once commonly worn playing or attending traditional "gentlemen's sports", persist in only some games now, such as occasional use by tennis players, or in cricket, where in professional matches, such as international test matches, it is considered customary for the captain to wear a blazer with the team's logo or national coat of arms on the breast pocket — at least during the coin toss at the beginning of the match.

The reefer jacket was of naval origin, and described the short double-breasted jacket worn by sailors in harsh weather, when they performed duties such as reefing the sails.

Originally with black horn buttons, these jackets evolved to the modern dark blazer, now single as well as double breasted, and with metallic buttons.
