the perfect blue blazer

post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 
So I am thinking of having my guy make me the perfect blue blazer. I figured a wool silk blend in a super 110 or 120 for durability. I wanted something I could wear biz casual but slap with khakis or something. Then I started to think...what the hell would be the perfect blue blazer? So I hold it out to you.

Tell me what would be your perfect blue blazer? What pockets to have? Ticket Pocket? Buttons? Etc.

I'm kinda fishing for ideas.

Thanks

If there were one perfect configuration everyone would get it. Get what you like.

I'd still like to hear suggestions of what everyone thinks the perfect blazer is however.

You can't go wrong with a two button, medium gorge, two vent jacket. Ticket pocket? Meh, nothing wrong with it, but it's personal choice.

 

I don't care for patch pockets but there is nothing wrong with it.

 

If you want it to be versatile, as you say, I would avoid any avant garde features like a single sleeve button (never liked that either). Here's an idea... How about peak lapels? I've always liked the look of them on a blazer.

I'd like to find a never ending supply of banknotes in one of the pockets, that'd be my perfect blazer.

True. What may be perfect for me may not necessarily be perfect for you.

I know it is all personal choice and blah blah, But I am trying to look past my imagination. See I recognize there are things I know I don't know. But there are things I don't know I don't know. I am looking for some recommendations since what some of you may like, I may like as well.

But, I don't know I don't like...OH MAN I BURNING OUT ON THE LOGIC OF THIS FORGET IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!censored.gif

So you just want random ideas that aren't seen too often? Gauntlet cuffs. MoP buttons.

There are two I want right now
First is a half-lined hopsack darted 3/2, natural shoulder with the most breathable hopsack I can find. Open patch pockets for the bottom 2.
Second is a cotton 2:1 double breasted/1.5 breasted, open peak lapel with white MOP buttons and flap patch pockets.

I have four perfect blazers:

1. Belvest blue cashmere with a barely discernable herrigbone. Three buttons,
size vents. Very luxurious

2. Isaia Blue gabardine(?) cheaper line, gold buttons lighter weight. Three buttons
side vents. Excellent travel garment- hardly creases

3.Young-Robbins now defunct New York bespoke and higher end store Blue hopsack
2 real gold plate buttons. Although nearly 20 years old , a very classical cut with natural
shoulders and side vents. Still fits.

4. My oldest- doesn't fit. I refuse to part with it. Ordered from Chipp I (Winston Tailors) 20+ years ago.
My requirement was that I should be able to sit in a plane for six hours and go immedeiately
to a meeting with no sign that the garment had been treated this way. The result, a jacket in blue
of a very heavy dense cloth, I'd guess Super 20s Two buttons ,side vents ,a nip-waisted Ivy jacket.
