May I ask who makes that jacket? That is exactly the kind of thing I have been looking for. I passed on the opportunity to get a nice navy linen jacket a while back and have been regretting it ever since.

 

I was in the process of asking the same... I want that. Like, right now.

I asked this over in the Unfunded Liabilities thread as well, but what's the difference in a fresco and a wool crepe cloth? Probably a stupid n00bish question, but my Google fu fails me.

Thanks. The coat is an unlined flax/wool blend by Corneliani. It's from their CC Collection, which I believe is their cheaper line; came with white plastic buttons that I had swapped for white MoP. It also says 'Reset' on the inside pocket.

While the rest is the same, I think the shirts are different (pics taking at different times and in different countries), but I think they both are Barba. Shoes are the C&J unlined suede 'Chukka'. Pants are Incotex cotton/hemp.

I have a similar Corneliani CC blazer in linen, only mine is a lighter shade of blue. CC is indeed a diffusion line -- but for a casual, unstructured, summer jacket, I'm not overly concerned with holding myself to the same construction standards that I would with a suit. It's one of my favorite jackets, as evidenced by the frequency with which it tends to get chosen over other options on any given week.

Yours looks great, and seeing it has made me very interested in grabbing a navy one.

Maybe someone should start a "Show Us How You Wear You Blue Blazer" thread....I suspect it would be interesting to see just how versatile the blue blazer really is...that is, assuming people actually post their pics....

^^^ I think that's a great idea. Everyone is welcome to do that here if they like. Or if a new thread is in order that's fine too.

Well, I'm not sure this is "how to wear your blazer." More of "am I wearing my blazer correctly." It is hopsack, 3-roll-2, White MOP buttons, flap-patch side pockets, patch breast pocket.

I am unashamedly one of those people who thinks blazers are casual wear, and because of that I would say the tie and PS are too businessy to wear with a blazer, especially with MOP buttons. However that seems to be a personal quirk of mine and there are many here who would probably say that it is perfectly appropriate with that tie/PS combo. smile.gif

What do you recommend instead? A repp or wool tie (or cotton/linen tie in the summer)?

I have usually worn a wool/silk blend tie or repp stripe. I'm not big on cotton or linen ties but I could see how they might work. I have been experimenting with silk PSs when wearing a wool tie to try and get the whole contrasting textures thing going. Cream silk is a love it or hate it thing around here it seems, but it might be worth a try.

Talking of MOP:

Sleeves (and hair nod[1].gif) are actually shortened.

I have 3 navy blazers all with gold buttons and the only one I don't really wear is the double-breasted 6x2 one -who although its great for a Gilligan's Island Thurston Howell costume. As for the other two, I wear them with gray flannels, khaki's, GTH pants, or even with jeans. Just a wardrobe basic that goes with everything.
