Excellent, thanks for the explanation. Any other recommendations out there. I really like the fit of the ludlow club blazer, just wonder if it's a reasonable blazer to add given the patch pockets. I know this has been asked many times, just looking for a recent update given this is an older thread.

Patch pockets are absolutely fine on any odd jacket, including a navy blazer. I actually prefer them on odd jackets and I have them on all but two of my odd jackets (went flap on a DB navy blazer and flap on a grey herringbone jacket that really could have used patch pockets). If you need to be in formal business attire, you'll be wearing a suit anyway, so the fact that patch pockets may not be suitable for formal business dress should not be an issue.

I don't love the fact that the Ludlow has a center vent as I much prefer side vents, but YMMV.

Well... it's not technically below $500 retail, but you can snag Belvest sport coats for under $500 on my site www.nsuited.com :bigstar:

Definitely can if one is a size 40R. If not, slim pickings.

Ludlow lapels are too slim for my taste
