I have decided to add this staple to my wardrobe, but I want it to be something that is more leaning toward formal so I can wear it for business when a suit isn't called for, but need to have a jacket. I have looked at and tried a few different options on a thin budget (300 or less) and have purchased two options I am trying to decide between. Neither has patch pockets, but I am ok with that, as again, I don't mind leaning a bit formal.
Please take a look and below and offer some suggestions as to fit and style:
Option 1: JAB Joseph Blazer - I like the fabric better than other option - 100% wool and more texture - more like a hopsack weave. Has pick stitching. Shoulders more pronounced. Bigger in the waist. The back looks kind of a mess around the shoulders and sleeves. Is this a fit issue and can it be fixed?
Option 2: BB Fitzgerald Blazer - Fabric is more suit-like - worsted. 98% wool, 2% lastol. More natural shoulder. Would replace brass buttons with MOP.
Any thoughts appreciated.
