I'll ask and let y'all know.
Yeah, I've come to the same conclusion about light blue jackets. A few white OCBD's would probably make them easier to wear. All my white shirts have spread collars. And narrow blue stripes are tricky as they are a tad dressy for a light blue jacket. Really requires the right shirt wardrobe to work.I'd wear that blazer all the time, same as my other two staple blue blazers. It'll be my very last solid blue blazer. Promise. Probably. For a while anyway. And it's a year...
I have a lot of blue blazers.

The guy who played Robocop went to my high school. He also has a PhD in art history or something from UCLA ---- Yup, I got my staples well covered, so versatility isn't something I consider too much when I buy something (though I need to have at least four combinations that it'll work with). That being said, I think the next B&T commission is going to be a blue blazer. Probably the 520 fresco. I don't have a good blue between my navy blazersuit and my blue blazersuit.
Navy blazer, or something just lightert han navy. Patch pockets is a plus...you don't want anybody confusing your one blazer with an orphaned suit jacket. If you are looking for something a little more rustic, the patch pockets will help. I'd want something a little more useful on warmer days than tweed. Look at something like hopsack. Suit Supply has a number of good examples of blue with texture. Blue, different blue, white with fine blue stripes. Light gray and mid...
Probably in, but I won't be wearing this cashmere blend jacket from last week.  
I don't want to spoil it, but Oldboy might be worse. I mean, it isn't. Because one is a porn. But it isn't just the sex itself that makes Oldboy inappropriate for watching with parents.
If you aren't planning on wearing a lot of gray suits, I'd say brown over navy. I wear navy blazers at least twice a week, and if we include blue, probably four times a week. As a result, I rarely find myself reaching for ties in the blue range. The occasional gray suit, though, always gets paired with a blue tie. So yeah, if you wear a lot of gray, a navy tie is a priority. If not, you'll get more out of brown and burgundy.

Not knowing what I was getting into, I saw Oldbpy in theaters with my mom. Afterwards, she said "Claghorn, that was an excellent movie. And we will never talk about it again." There are few worse movies to see with one's mother.
