Well, I spent all day today looking for the perfect navy blazer and can not find it. I went to a local place called Mario's, which carries Kiton, Canali, Brioni, Barbera, Zegna, Prada, etc and they didn't have a single navy blazer I found acceptable. All they showed me, it seems, were various suit jackets. So many of the blazers I looked at today just looked silly or cheap. I'm unsure of whether to stick with a 3-button SB, or go for it and get a DB. Is DB too formal? Will it lose the versatility of a SB? The only blazer I've found that I really liked was this: http://www.polo.com/product/index.jsp?productId=1784726 but I'm not sure what it would actually look like since they buttoned the goddam bottom button in the pic (why do they do that?), and I'm not sure that it's worth the price. Anyone have a blazer they love? Something versatile, classy and a true classic blazer?
