Being a young man, or to some just a late teen, I tend to fell very real and firm constraints on my wardrobe budget. These feel especially tight when it is time to add another suit into my rotation, which at the moments sits at an all-time low due to recent gym revelations. Sulking about this problem I was stunned when I saw something interesting at Club Monaco, while picking up my girlfriend after her shift. A gray, three button jacket. The jacket would be nothing interesting if not for the lapels and overall edges. They were bordered with thick, grey thread almost in a fashion similar to what tailors do when they make you try on an unfinished suit. The quality wasn't too impressive, but the design won my heart for a casual, tee n' blazer date look. Although no Canali, and certainly below par to my usual tastes it did seem very interesting. However, I'm still debating buying it, even with the discount from my girl.  If anyone has seen the jacket I'm talking about, could you please offer your opinion?

I haven't seen the exact model you're talking about, but I've seen similar designs by Interno 8 and Etro - usually white contrast stitching on dark charcoal, black or navy - and I like the look. Very hip. It may be dated in a few years, which should give you all the more reason to wear it to death now. I think the stitching gives the jacket a nice raw edge that makes it easier to pair with jeans. The obsessive-compulsive in me thinks you could wear it with a white shirt also with contrast stitching (maybe black or red?). Nick.

Thanks for the suggestions, I decided to pick it up. The price with the employee dicount was slightly over $100 Canadian so it was a steal even if the quality will not permit much wear. Don't know if I will ever wear it with jeans, so I grabbed a nice pair of pants to go with the jacket. All in all a good deal. I will lok into the two brands you suggested, thanks.
