Ironically, I (and many others I know) would kill for a good blazer that was inherited.
Depends on your body the first thing people notice is the fit (the length of the blazer with the body length and how the blazer fits the shoulders) and I am Short -less than 170 cm- so definitely wearing a lengthy (as the my problem is with the length usually ) blazer will make me look stupid even if the materials and finishing are great :/ It took me a very long time to find a blazer that is made with relatively good materials (most of the kids blazers are of synthetic materials or poly-blend materials ) and many brands don't give detailed information about the fit which might make it a gamble for me :/
CK Kids - usually synthetic materials
TH kids - not bad
PRL kids - Great Materials and Great Finishing but I have to email them and know more about their XL size
BB - I remember looking up their size chart and I think it wouldn't fit me at all when it comes to the Chest & shoulders
The best thing about LE is that they offer the Husky kids fit -for kids with extra weight / with broad shoulders yet of short height - so it is easy for me to buy a blazer that fits me just well
