    Hello all, So excited; my very first post on the Styleforum. I have been following AA and the SF for some months now and really learned a lot. Really funny how people react to my new clothes etc. Even my sister who had not seen me for a couple of months was shocked. [​IMG] I have two questions: I have spotted this Vestimenta blazer on an on-line shop: [​IMG] It seems to be exactly my size and I was thinking of buying a grey blazer (another "first" since I never owned such a jacket). I wonder what you people think of it? Would it be suitable for casual wear with jeans, cords or khaki's? And it is not a real jacket for the summer but for fall and spring it should be ok right? My second question: Does anyone know were I can buy some new thick MOP buttons? (for one of my fleabay purchases [​IMG] ) Thanks, Niall

    The garment is styled / cut much more like a shirt with patch pockets than a blazer jacket.

    Look at some Brooks blazers. Or Burberry. Look at the shape of the shoulders, chest, skirt. Then compare to your picture.

    Nothing wrong with the choice of grey - at least in my opinion. But, I'd get a true Blazer style jacket for more usefulness.

    Actually I liked the patch pockets on this one; makes it less formal...? Maybe it is also useful to add that I am a 24 year old student. Thanks for the links about the MOP buttons. However they are not really what I was looking for [​IMG] Maybe mister Kabbaz can give me some help? Regards, Niall
