    Where do y'all buy your Sportcoats? I don't have any interest to spend more than $300 on a jacket to wear with jeans and a button down shirt. Are there good values out there? I've check Brooks Brothers, Charles Thyrwitt, and SuitSupply and haven't found many good jackets at a good value.

    Just picked up a couple of Massimo Dutti blazers each under $300. Quality isn't quite Suit Supply level, but the fit OTR is pretty good for the price.

    SuitSupply sportcoats are $400+. Are they worth is when they are unconstrcuted?

    Depends. Howard Yount and the BS forum offer superior goods at a comparable price, problem is, it's a one man show with regard to Yount and the forum requires patience. I just saw some KILLER summer weight jackets sell over there.

    Never been a fan of the BS forum. I've purchased a few things on there and sometimes the pictures arent accurate to the color. Also, it is always best to try a blazer on before spending money.

    Can you tell me more about Howard Yount? Their jackets look really good. They are just over $400.

    yes. Fit and construction are great. at 3-400 youre not getting kiton level quality. but they fit great and look nice.

    HY makes a really nice blazer as well, but I prefer SS for the fit and selection.
