I ran across an article about Toweling Blazers today by Forbes and I was instantly fascinated by the idea. A blazer made of robe material! Seriously, I can see water loving prepsters everywhere rejoicing.

The age old problem of leaving the beach and the pool and dressing for a nice dinner. Problem solved, now your towel is your dinner jacket. Having a beach wedding? This is a great jacket option for the wedding party. It looks smart for photos and it is actually usable after the wedding.

The story goes Marko Andrus, a web developer, was sitting by the pool and wondered what Jay Gatsby would have worn to one of his parties. In a flash he thought of a toweling blazer that was functional for poolside and chic enough for the clubhouse or a fancy dinner. He had his tailor create a couple of prototypes and wore them on vacation. People loved them and thus his company BaskNYC was born.

The 100% Turkish Terry Cloth jacket features an adorable monkey holding a martini glass on the front pocket and a color coordinated BASK logo under the collar. Jacket colors, navy or white terrycloth with multiple grosgrain trim color options. The cost for a BASK jacket is $175 Youth $275 Women’s and $289 Men’s.
