Well, if you don't use the "styleforum" coupon, you're lopheaded for sure. As for the blazer itself, for $210, I'm ambiguous. If it is the same blazer I've seen, it's made out of a sweatshirt material, and the fit is actually a lot better than those pictures show - it is a lot slimmer and more flattering if you don't buy a size larger than intended and the arms don't actually fit that long (that model has remarkably short arms, I've noticed.) On the other hand, I find myself with pieces like this and never wearing them - I dress *really* casually, and a sportsjacket, even one make out of sweatshirt material, is too dressy for me. On the other hand, if you are comfortable with a more dressed up look and want a pretty well made piece (it is similar in construction to the Spruce sweatshirt material peacoat).
