    Nobody? Is it just a suit coat he is using as a separate?

    Very hard to tell from those photos. It's got some sheen to it--probably either a smooth worsted (I hope not) or possibly something with mohair in it.

    I'd actually disagree with you though, this is the quintessential *bad* blazer like what you see from Jos Bank. I would love to see a fabric with some texture.

    Agreed. Bet it's an orphaned suit jacket, too.

    That's what I was thinking as well.

    Yeah thanks for the thoughts. I like it because it doesn't seem as stuffy as a patterned/textured jacket but it still looks like a proper fit. I would like to find a navy blazer that doesn't look like the typical old man navy blazer.

    Lol thanks. I'm not saying that textured doesn't have it's place. I have my share of herringbone, tweeds, etc. however I liked this look. Just wondered material.

    He's getting at the fact that a blazer doesn't give you the play (in terms of colour and fabrics) of the things you deemed "stuffy". Especially not the one pictured, which I would agree could be an orphan.
