Crockett Blazer Type?

Recommended Posts

Det. Crockett

Hi, I’m a relatively new fan to Miami Vice and I’m really happy to have found this forum. So my question is what are the type of blazers that Crockett wears called? I’m tryign to search for some that are a similar style, but not actual vintage ones. However most blazers I see are nothing like the ones he wears. His are much more loose and very thin compared to the multiple layers that other blazers have.

Welcome aboard!

Go to the "Party Favors" section and click on the "Cooper and Burnett Scrap Book" section. Coop actually owns a lot of the original Blazers Don Johnson wore on the show. Lots of information in his section.

Also do a linen jackets/blazers search on the web. Edit: And check out the thread above: Coop's Crockett style clothes. :thumbsup:

This is unknown, I think they were just linen blazers. No special name. Back in the day they used to make some thin, almost like a shirt. 

It's hard to find them these days, but sometimes you get lucky by searching for "summer blazer". There's a site called Ali Express where a lot of Chinese wholesale types sell those kinds of blazers also. Cheap too. Apparently that sort of fashion is still popular in Asia lol.

I personally have not purchased anything off this website though, I'm not big on online shopping. 

I think some of the blazers Sonny wore were a linen/cotton mix. Because I have a shirt in my wardrobe which looks like the material is the same and it's a linen cotton mix, the tag says. 

Welcome to the site, by the way. Hope you find what you're looking for!

Edit: Look for some "unlined blazers" also.

The smaller sizes are hard to come across sometimes.

You might also search "unconstructed jacket or blazer".
