My father is going to a third world country next week and I am thinking of asking him to bring me back a navy blazer. I think it's worth it since I don't have this staple in this wardrobe and a 100% wool blazer can be made for about $50 or so probably. Even if it doesnt work out it won't be much money lost. Anyways, I was wondering what things I should write down for the blazer. So far I have: - 2 button - 'slim fit' - side vents - notch lapels In particular, how wide should I get the lapels? I am a slim guy, 6'0 and 155 lbs and it will be worn with my Howard Yount trousers which are on the slim side also. Also, what kind of buttons? I don't want gold buttons though. Any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. As for working out my size I am just giving measurements of my neck, waist, hips, biceps etc. and am hoping it comes back remotely fitting me. From there perhaps get it altered here to fit really well. Are there any other key measurements that I should give? I know shoulders are critical for a blazer.
