You can probably find a better low cost option than that.

At STP, you can get a higher quality navy blazer for about 1/3 more if you sign up for DealFlyer:

With your DealFlyer coupon, you save an extra 35% on your order of $125 or more:

Just an option to consider.

-Check out the above.

-Ebay is always an option

-As well as the BS forum here. If you're a 40r I'm sure this poster would entertain offers:

Classified: Ralph Lauren Classic Navy Sport Coat Size 40R

 

A low cost blazer should not be to hard to find.

I actually ordered exact same TH from overstock last week (was on sale just shy of $120).  I'm aware it's nothing top of the line and actually like it for what it is.  I've had difficulty finding deals under my budget range and availability (size 36S) from STP, Ebay, B&S, etc.  I'd gladly take a look if anyone on SF has better recommendations.

 

But like I said, I like it for what it is.  I'm trying not to get too technical with it as I will only end up disappointing myself.

are you asking about price-quality of blazer? or quality of the blazer on its own?

Trying to find a navy blazer on a budget of $100 to $200 so I really want to get a good value for my money as I am trying to build the basics of my wardrobe.

Assuming you're not in a rush to buy and your size is often available, you're probably better off through Ebay/B&S for slightly used (if you don't mind used)

Go to a brick and mortar store. Do not buy online, until you have more experience getting well fitting clothes. You will likely be disappointed otherwise.

Additionally, whatever you get will need to be altered. A trip to the tailor will cost probably $20 - $50 for basic alterations. The store may do it for free, if you buy from them.

Brooks brother is having a sale right now. They have at least three basic cuts for there jackets. This is a good place to start. I know it will cost more than your budget, but they have several jackets under $$275 online. I think they are priced lower in the store. You may be eligible for an additional first time buyer/teacher discount.

I would avoid the gold button blazer for now and go with something like the ones below.

there cotton is not as classic or versatile as the wool, but it may be good enough for the classroom.

I don't mean to push you to BB, but it will be easier for you to get a coherent look if you stick with one vendor or designer for your initial purchases. If not BB, then J. Crew, RL are good staring points, if they fit your style.

There's always J.Crew or Gap for $100 or less.
