    Gentlemen,

    I'm slowly expanding my classic menswear collection and am in the process of replacing the Ralph Lauren Navy Blazer that served me well through college. I would like to purchase a classically styled blazer at a competitive price-point and because I am still seeking employment in the legal field after recently taking the bar, I am relegated to the pre-owned market. I ask you wise fellows if this is a classic "3 roll-2 blazer" and if so, do you think it would prove valuable in my wardrobe. Finally, what are your thoughts on the price? I have seen many "Brooksgate" blazers on ebay but would prefer to steer clear. Any advice, criticisms, or help would be greatly appreciated. Please excuse the goober model.

    Thanks

    Kinda tough to tell from the pictures, but from what I'm able to see, looks like a 3 button blazer. The third hold on a 3r2 would be much further under the lapel

    Sounds like the Brooks blazer that I wore at an Ivy League college in the 60s. The only detail omitted were
    welted seams.
