Do you think this blazer can be worn casually. I was hoping to pair it was grey jeans and sneakers. I was turned on by the thin lapels, center vent, and 90% cotton makeup. Also, how is costume national homme's quality, is this a "deal" at $200, or just okay, or bad. Thanks.

I guess I'm not a sneaker person, but I can't really imagine wearing a blazer and sneakers. I tend to avoid sneakers in anything other than tshirts though, so don't listen to me.

That said, looks pretty nice to me

^^ CP doesn't make sneakers, they specialize in shoe-shaped jewelry.

I've never seen the sneaker/blazer look, or even the blazer/tshirt look done so well.

it's a nice jacket, I'm sure you could wear it with jeans, the only issue is the color matching.

Yeah, you can still wear it with denim you just need to make sure the shade is different.

I'd kick this query over to the main men's forum for advice about quality.

If you wear with khakis, they would look best if they were trim cut to match the trim lapels. Along the same lines, trim lapels look best with smaller collared shirts. If those match your taste and wardrobe then, yes, get it.
