A blazer is a lightweight jacket, typically solid-colored (most often dark blue), often worn as part of a uniform by members of a club, sports team, or school.  It is a plain jacket, typically in navy color, not forming part of a suit but considered appropriate for formal or semiformal wear. When it is made from wool fiber is it would be a wool blazer.

Wool is the textile fiber obtained from sheep and other animals, including cashmere and mohair from goats, qiviut from muskoxen, angora from rabbits, and other types of wool from camelids.  Wool can be woven into thick fabrics with a deep, rich texture. It can make anything from very fine and silky threads to thick, coarse yarns. The resulting fabrics can range from thick, hairy, and coarse to extremely lightweight and smooth to the touch.  The fabric is often used for men's suits, sport coats, and blazers.  In addition to its appearance, wool holds heat in extremely well.  Even a think wool jacket can provide a good amount of warmth.

Tailors favor the resiliency wool for suit jackets because wool cloths hold their shape and last a long time. Although it is not always discussed when deciding which type of tailored clothing to select, it is good to keep in mind that wool has some water resistant properties.  Untreated wools that still have the fatty lanolin from the original animal can be almost waterproof, and even fine wools give you some protection.

A blazer is a type of jacket resembling a suit jacket, but cut more casually. A blazer is generally distinguished from a sportcoat as a more formal garment and tailored from solid color fabrics. Blazers often have naval-style metal buttons to reflect their origins as jackets worn by boating club members.

Blazers are worn with a wide variety of other clothes, ranging from a dress shirt and necktie to an open-necked polo shirt, even to just a plain tee shirt. They are seen with trousers of all colors and fabrics, from the classic white cotton or linen, to grey flannel, to brown or beige chinos, and also jeans.

Why are patches sometimes on blazer jackets?

Where the blazer is part of the dress of a school, college, sports club, or armed service veterans' association, it is normal for a badge to be sewn to the breast pocket. In schools, this may vary according to the student's standing in the school; whether a member of the junior or senior school, being a prefect or having been awarded colors, in recognition of particular achievement in some academic or sporting field.

The blazers relevance in sports:

Two popular sporting events where blazers to signify victory are the Congressional Cup Regatta at the Long Beach Yacht Club.  At this boating event they ward a crimson color blazer to the winner of several flights of match race sailing of the highest international caliber.  The Masters golf tournament, held in Augusta, Georgia is another important sports event.  At this event they award a green blazer to the top masters golfer in the USA.

Blazers, once commonly worn playing or attending traditional 'gentlemen's sports', persist in only some games now.  Occasional use by tennis players, or 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.

Trendy Blazers come and go:

Striped blazers became popular among British Mods in the early 1960s, and again during the Mod revival of the late 1970s — particularly in three-color thick/thin stripe combinations, with three-button single breasted front, five or six inch side or center vents and sleeve-cuffs with multi-buttons. Various photos from 1964 and 1965 show London mods in boating blazers. Photos of mod icons The Who from 1964 (as the High Numbers) variously show Pete Townshend, Keith Moon and John Entwistle wearing boating blazers.

Bright style of blazer was affectionately adopted by Austin Powers as part of his Swinging London look.
