I would like some suggestions on 2 blazers I would like to build my wardrobe around.

About me: 35 year old health care professional who also doubles as a real estate investor. I am loyal to Allen Edmonds, shoe-wise, but it appears from the posts on this site that there are many other brands equivalent & better!

First, I'd like a classic navy blazer. Any suggestions on a label that isn't too trendy, and is a good value for the money? There's a Polo University Club blazer on eBay that looks good, but I'm sure if it would be considered too "low end" for me.

Second, I'd like a corduroy blazer with leather elbow patches. I simply have always liked the look.

Thanks for your help.

Saw this thread and thought it was about time I stopped lurking. I'm a 30 something car salesman and due in large part to the advice I've absorbed off of SF in the last 9 months I have:
1. Purchased a large classic chestnut saddleback leather briefcase.
2. A pair of Park Ave Allen Edmonds.
3. A pair of 5th Ave AEs.
4. Upgraded my wardrobe by splurging in a suit package from Culwell & sons.
5. Have considered searching ebay for a damaged blue tie


It's now time for some blazers. Can't see myself spending +$1k on something like a RLPL, am I safe by revisting Culwell, and what are the pros/cons of gold buttons/crests on a classic blue blazer? Severley leaning towards something more understated.

Thanks in advance, and I look forward to being an active member for years to come.
