Recommendations on a new blazer?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hey guys, first time poster. I've been looking to replace my navy blazer. I'd like a thinner lapel, 2 button, canvas construction without shattering the bank. Can anyone recommend and any brands that fit this criteria?

Last summer I picked up an H. (not Hickey) Freeman sport coat-
full canvas, two button, side vents, three inch lapels- which for me
is narrow. My guess is that they also make a blue blazer in this cut.
Model # 9204146 or COF# 010931- Found in inside pocket. It's
beautifully made and is not trim- nor am I. My guess is that you would go
down a size.

It would be a good idea to have your blazer custom tailored with your specifications, try any of the online mtm stores.

But dependant upon your level of knowledge or skills beware of the many pit falls of online MTM

I've done Joseph Abboud MTM at Nordstrom. I've been reasonably satisfied with what I got for the truck show price. I'm just trying to step my game up a bit.

compromise for half-canvas and pick up an epaulet blazer? has served me very well though and full construction usually creeps up in price.

Probably not a good idea. Check out Jcrew or Brooks Brothers Fitzgerald/Regent/Milano.

Jcrew is probably the best option here. The price is right on track.
