I'm having trouble finding a casual blazer. The ones I see out there are too formal/shiny.

What kind of blazer would you guys wear with a variety of solid-color T-shirts (grey, purple, etc.)? What color would you recommend for a guy with dark skin?

Also probably would wear some simple button downs under it too...

Would like to not spend more than $200...

Thanks!

Did you specifically want a blazer or a jacket? For most people they are interchangeable. J Crew, BR or H&M are great places to start. I like to wear a deconstructed jacket with T shirts. It is an informal jacket for an informal look. Good Luck!

Specifically something that classes up an outfit like a blazer rather than a very casual jacket.

What color blazer is versatile enough to look good on dark skin with a lot of things but not the typical navy? White?

Class up a T-Shirt
Id say hit up H&M and get a cheap but fitting jacket, call it good. Color? With dark skin tone most bold or light colors work exceptionally well. Keep it casual and get a purple/merlot velvet jacket

I like the Armani Exchange blazers. It's like in the $150-$200 range I think. Pretty slim/modern/"trendy" look that's pretty informal (very, very short jacket length).

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
