I have been lurking on this forum for a while now, learnt a bunch of stuff from all of you, and finally plucked up the courage to ask a question here.
I bought an unlined, unstructured, casual navy blazer with patch pockets from eBay. I did not pay too much for it, so am not unhappy if it is not a perfect piece. However, just for my education, I am really interested in finding out if it is indeed possible that the designer intended for this blazer not to have any cuff/sleeve buttons?
To be fair, I did not see any non-functional button holes or other indications that buttons were originally on the cuff. The sleeve is just a barrel all the way through from the shoulder to the cuff. The seller told me it was designed as such. However, I have a feeling that the seller is a reseller and not the original owner (no proof of that, just a feeling based on his huge volume of sales).
Since this blazer is new-to-me, I intend to wear it just for kicks even if it is not perfect and missing the cuff buttons. Any pictures/links on how to wear an unstructured blazer will be great education for me. As I wear it, I find that the unstructured/unlined nature of the blazer does not really fit how I imagine a blazer should look like (which is much more structured). I am sure that there are ways to pull off this unstructured look, and am looking forward to learning about your favorite looks and ideas.
Also, this blazer is some blend of silk (I think). In any case, it wrinkles very easily. Do you think it is OK to wear this casual blazer wrinkled? I read that ironing it too much might make it shiny in a bad way, and I am also too lazy to iron it every time I wear it. I could possibly outsource the ironing to the drycleaners, but it costs money and two trips to pickup and drop off the blazer.
Sorry for asking so many questions! You guys are great!
P.S: Sorry for double-posting too. I started a new thread before I realized I was supposed to ask questions here.
