    I'd look into their three button blazers (cheapest model will do). You can get trousers there too! Pleated of course, lolz!

    Seriously though, take a look around pictures in the WAYWRN thread and other threads, get an idea of what kind of blazer you want generally, what sort of occasions and events you'll be wearing it to, and the price range you want to be in. By that point you probably won't need to come back to this thread as you will already have an idea of what the options are. But at least do that. If after that you have some more specific questions then maybe we can help you out but this isn't some service where you just type in your sizes and a request for awesome shit and people tell you what to buy.

    Agree we were just having a little fun with you.

    Also, get out there and try on many brands.

    You've already been given some pretty good advice. If you can't find a retailer or a jacket and a pair of trousers like that on eBay your size, you may want to consider something like Indochino. Since a $1,000+ jacket is not a possiblity right now, I believe they have MTM blazers available in that basic style for far less. I believe there are other vendors like Indochino (Thick as Thieves comes to mind) who may also meet your requirement. That said, I would recommend that you do a search on DB blazers on this site, and maybe see a few more, and learn a few things about style, quality, fit, etc. This may help you in your search. Happy hunting, and welcome to StyleForum.

    Go to any children's clothing store (Chidren's Place, for example) and check out their boys section.

    That'll do you nicely as you are looking to emulate the "I'm wearing my little brother's clothes" look

    Double breasteds in that style are nothing but trendy trash; get a properly fitting single breasted navy blazer that at least covers your arse and will look good forever.

    And if you want the blazer and the grey wool trousers purely so you can emulate this look I'd advise against it - copying will never help you learn your own style, do as some gentlemen above said and browse the forum to find inspiration and information on how proper blazers fit!

    It's like the beginning of a prison movie I'm afraid. You're new fish. Most of the people here won't admit that they were buying Kenneth Cole square toes and 80's style DBs with low gorges back in the day. Like anything else social, there's a pecking order. You just need to navigate through it: if you think it's worth it. My two cents.

    Pictured blazer is too short IMHO. DBs are tough to fit right and look bad when even slightly off. I recommend starting off with SB, especially if you want to spend less than $1k. Do not get DB from indochino, this will end poorly.

    The first couple of months on SF are best spent in silence, lurking. Next comes a frenzy of trolling, which you have witnessed here, followed by years of snark and tons of reiterated SF group think. Only after about 10,000 posts is something useful and style-altering really posted.

    As a matter of fact, I am sure I have read this same post some where else... :confused:

    I would highly recommend looking for one in your size on Ebay. I just bought one for $40 from Hickey Freeman. Full Canvas and super 120's tazmanian loro piana wool. The fabric is really something else.

    There are so many pictures all over the web about color and style all you have to do is google them.
