I'm looking for a sportcoat to throw on with all types of casual outfits. Conceptually, I want the equivalent of "your Â father's" deconstructed Orvis Harris tweed, minus all of the aspects that make this Orvis-ish (i.e. tweed, elbow patches, leather covered buttons). This is my first foray into wearing any sort of blazer on a regular basis, so I want it to be suitable for someone in their mid-twenties, yet fairly conservative/classic. These are a couple of general examples of the look that I'm going for: fendi and N&M. In fact, if I could find the Normandy & Moore for less than retail you wouldn't be reading this post. Hopefully this jacket will feel just as right with wool slacks/shirt & a tie as well as jeans and a cashmere sweater. Some vital stats: 25 years old, 5'11", 185, 42R suit, and I prefer my cuts on the slim side. Alas, my question: is there someone who does this deconstructed blazer better than anyone else? Is there a can't miss material that fills my requirements and is also flexible enough for near-year round use? Thanks in advance.
