Hello everyone, I just joined this forum not very long ago. The information here is just overwhelming, love it but at the same time, lost! I am 26, 6'0" 180 lb, solid build. Never in my life wore suit/blazer or anything along those lines before. My work does not require it and I just wear a shirt with jeans/chino pretty much 99% of the time. However, I do think its time I kind of step it up a little bit style wise.
So here is my question, where do I start reading on casual blazers and suits? I don't even have the slightest clue what to type into the search bar... I am in no hurry and willing to take time reading.
Currently I own 0 suits/blazers. After going through some posts, I pretty much got the idea a navy summer/spring blazer is a good place to start. What do I need to know before I buy/orhttp://www.styleforum.net/t/79716/ask-a-question-get-an-answer-post-all-quick-questions-here/14265der? Price is not the biggest issue but keeping it around 600 would be nice.
Pretty much I am looking for one of those " ***newbies*** READ FIRST before post and ask for advice on suit/blazer " thread or anything similar.
Thanks in advance !
You are right, there is an overwhelming volume of information and opinions - most good, some not - on this forum. I suggest you take a step back and visit Put This On www.putthison.com to gain some insight into the basics and then branch out from there.
