    Its marginal, but if pressed to choose, I would go with dated. Might require some work to make it fit modern, definitely a button swap, but the lapels are not terrible. Quarters are a bit too closed for me, and the gorge is a little low.

    So, in your opinion, the one on the first page looks better than the one n the second page

    No, neither actually. If I had to pick between the two, Id take this newer one, but I suggest neither.

    I've bought quite a few sportcoats on ebay lately. Some have been fantastic, some have been meh, and one was absolutely miserable.

    I say your first step is to measure a well fitting jacket that you have and find a jacket that has similar measurements. Having to tailor an already overpriced sportcoat sucks.

    I have found some really nice, high quality stuff for under $40.

    For example:

    [​IMG] (some of the softest camelhair I've felt)
    [​IMG] Got beat up on the lapels, but I love it
    [​IMG]

    I'd be cautious before dropping $125 for a blazer.
