Actually, that was a white rabbit turned red from passion.

No hate from me either... I like mine very much! It's a Kiton in 180'S fabric...

And if someone can create brass buttons that go over (on top of) horn/pearl buttons that would be awesome.
Hey Haggie, Here are a couple of shots from an RAF blue ripple finish cashmere. It supposedly has vicuna in it but I dunno.

I love that finish on cashmere for shirt jackets. I'm not sure if I would on a blazer, but maybe.

I dunno if it needs to e called a blazer, this is a little too luxurious and hip for that dowdy (or, at a minimum traditional) garment.

I dunno -- seems that only one girl in the image is an understatement.

I really, really do not understand the import of this image.

No hate here. The navy blazer is the most versatile coat a man can have, I have 2 and love them

I completely agree. Especially for business travel, you can't beat a navy blazer. It works in any season in just about any setting.

I am definitely in the pro-navy blazer camp. It works with just about anything so it gets a lot of use.Enough so that its time for a replacement.





Yeah,I know it's probably because I'm a year and a half older than dirt but I still think NB's look good for a casual look. But then I also want a Harris tweed in brown.

I have no intention of ever owning a navy blazer, but I do own a forest green DB blazer with enamelled buttons that I feel entirely comfortable wearing. The slightly eccentric, different colour gives it that personal touch that makes me happy to wear it. Wearing a navy blazer makes me feel like I'm hiding behind something that doesn't really reflect my personality.
Interesting as I feel exactly the opposite. Blue seems classic to me (but I'd always go for SB and avoid brass buttons). Green and double-breasted makes me think of Alan Partridge
