post #31 of 40
If you only wear blazers and never suits:

Year round:

2 Navy 2.5 roll with brown horn buttons.

Spring/Summer

Navy Linen
Seersucker
Tan Linen
Patterned linen sportscoat

Fall/Winter

Brown/green heavy tweed
Navy Cashmere woolen
A variety of Patterned dark colored sportcoats in woolens.


Life if much easier if work with suits instead.

^ I think a camel hair is a staple. Pair this with dark chocolate brown pants and it is an awesome fall look.

Which blazers do you guys wear in hot weather, and extremely casual settings (e.g. college campuses, going to the movies, stuff like that)?

Blue/white seersucker or unlined navy canvas. I should note that I'm "that guy in the seersucker jacket" even at casual events, but people seem to like it. (Generally, if you're the one with the beer, they will like anything.)

0 is also an option that I believe hasn't been mentioned in this thread. Again, it's an option and should be treated as such.

A common mistake is to start buying before you understand what dressing is about. You wind up with items that you'll later hate and will get rid of. Buy slowly, one thing at a time, the best you can afford. Buy only what you really need for your lifestyle, not what you think you should have to "be a man" or any of that rot.

But first work on fit. As JLibourel said above, in 5 years, you'll have a different body than you do now. But for now, if you have two blazers, of any color, that actually fit you well, you'll be the rare 18 year old.

Uhh I'll try to post pics later.
Um maybe I should just wear other preppy clothes like v-neck sweaters and stuff. Anyways, I was wondering where I can buy clothes similar to Club Monaco, cause I like the clothes from there. Problem is... there isn't a lot of variety/colors so I need another store to go to.

Umm... here are some pics I took with my cellphone. You probably can't tell if it fits me or not cause the quality is super bad. I'll try and post better pics once I find my camera and get someone to take the pic for me. Those weird wrinkles and stuff in the second picture are there cause of my awkward pose to take a pic. It's not like that when I stand normally. I probably should've took a pic with the top button closed huh...

I can tell that it's ridiculously short and that the buttoning point is hovering somewhere up around your nipples.

It's too short, which is what I feared. I thought (remembering my youth) you probably got them a year or two ago when you were shorter and are now just "discovering" them, hoping to make them work. You may find out that you in fact have no blazers at all, which ain't so bad, as you can start with a clean slate.

That said, you're young and slender, and can push the "tight and short" jacket look. But only so far.
