I got a divorce, so I thought I would go about improving my life.
For the past 6 months I've worked my butt off and got into shape. Now I want to treat myself to a few jackets/blazers to wear in the spring and summer.
I've always been a chino and polo guy, but I want to improve the way I look (nicer pants, tailored shoes, fitted dress shirts, and jackets).
I'm not familiar with blazers and jackets, but I know I want to get at least one navy blue and one gray one. The place I live gets very humid in the summer (August gets so humid that you don't want to wear anything at all), so I'm hoping I can still wear the jackets/blazers during that time to help cover up my sweaty armpits.
Pre-2012 Tom Ford designs are the kinds of styles that I like (Daniel Craig did not look good in Tom Ford's newer trendy Skyfall outfits), but I don't know much about them besides that I like the way they look.
So, when I walk into the tailor, what specifics should I request (drop?, vents?, buttons?, how low the front should be?, ...) so that I can get nice looking gray and navy blue blazers/jackets that will look good in the spring and summer heat, and stay looking stylish for years to come?
Thank you in advance.
