The Great Navy Blazer Conundrum - Page 15

post #211 of 229
I don't like the patches. Way too loud. If you want a diff blazer just for the buttons, just get a set of the buttons and swap them onto one of your blazers whenever summer rolls around.

Well I didn't get it just for the buttons. It is a very light weight construction whereas my other blazer is not. The buttons were just the thing that tipped the scale. Besides, I still want a blazer with brass buttons. I just want one with MOP too.

That's horrible.

Well I'd just get one in a lightweight construction (and a lighter color than that) and then switch the buttons according to season.

Also I'm on my phone so I can't really tell but those buttons look more like white plastic than MoP

They are definitely MOP. There is even roughness from the shell on the back of the buttons. I just cannot bring myself to switch buttons every season. I'd rather just have two blazers.

As has been said, the elbow patches are awful, awful, awful. I also find the lapels dangerously narrow.

You should be able to get the elbow patches removed if you don't like them.

Edit: looks like you already know that.

Oh yes, definitely. The reason why I bought it despite it having the patches was because I knew I could get rid of them.

I'm considering getting a navy sport coat in Minnis Fresco with smoked MOP buttons and patch pockets. My question is regarding the breast pocket. Should that be a patch pocket too?

You can go either patch or welt. The more conservative approach is welt. If you are unsure, probably welt. I happen to like the patch breast pocket, but if I get another patch-pocket jacket, I would probably go welt just for variety.

Personal preference. I do not like patch breast pockets, but if you do: get it.

Honestly, one could argue that a patch breast pocketed jacket is not suitable for a work meeting, but, unless you work in a super conservative office, no one really cares.

Eh, if you work in a conservative office, you probably shouldn't be wearing a patch pocket jacket at all.
