A while ago I took a handful of coats/blazers to the cleaners to be pressed. The majority of them came out ok, but two of the three button blazers came back with the lapels pressed like a 2 button coat, folded over the top button. I sent them back, and one came back ok, the second one came back wrong a second time. So then I had them press it right in front of me, but by that time the wrong crease was burned into it, and even when they did it right it still wouldnt lay...

Moreso are button-down shirts and jeans/casual pants, which thusly dominate my wardrobe at the moment. I...

After all, it's Nantucket, so it's somewhat casual. The question is, what do I wear? I need formal enough to match the bride, but not super over the top...
I was going to post this in the "Tan Suit" thread, but I figured better to create a new one, as it is also applicable to the cream coat thread, and several other threads I've read recently. I've noticed a lot of discussion on these forums re: where to wear less conservative attire. The consesus seems to be, if it's not appropriate for business, where will you possibly wear it other than to the club or the grocery store? Which leads me to ask, does anyone else on...

I have plenty of wool and blend blazers I wear year round. I have linen and seer for summer, cordoroy, suede, and tweed for winter. But I wear what I want to wear when I want to wear it regardless of season. If I want to wear a suede blazer in the summer I can pull it off.
I've googled that jacket, and the only sites that come up only have Medium and Large. I say try the medium, at that price you're not taking that much of a loss.
Years ago dressing carefully was almost a requirement. Today you have certain cultures (and I DONT mean race) who either simply dont care, or sloppy is actually a part of the style. 50+ years ago that would have been unheard of. Perhaps that's the part that's 'idolized'.

I agree with linen and i agree with seer (the link). A full suit can be very impressive, or either can be worn with jeans or slacks. And yes, they can be found in literally any budget. I have a full seer suit I paid $30!!!!! for brand new, although I've never worn it.
