That's too bad -- as one of my professors was fond of saying, "imagination rules the world, shithead."
My three navy blazers:
One ancient and ratty RTW SB 3B no-vent flap-pockets (with a mismatched button you cannot see under the lapel roll) -- as good a jacket as any if you're likely to get in a fight
One custom-tailored hopsack SB 3B side-vents flap-pockets
One custom-tailored flannel (a very tight flannel, mind) SB 3B side-vents flap-pockets
I haven't had a DB (suit or sport coat) since the 80's, but if I went for one, it would be a blazer.
And I love sportcoats more and more each passing year -- seem to wear suits less and less.
Recent additions include a "natural" camel-hair and a green-blue Harris Tweed.
