i realize that it isn't the highest quality, but i'm a poor grad student and think that this looks nice:

i've already tried it on in the store and it fits well. the in-store price is only $189, as well, so i think that it's a good deal.

how does it look and, equally importantly, what can i wear it with? is a camelhair blazer a good look when paired with jeans or dark khakis/corduroys?

thanks!

I like it, though you are right in thinking that it won't be great quality for that price. And I agree on your ideas of what to wear it with. Be sure to get it tailored to fit you if you have a waist. I have a really similar jacket in cashmere that I keep meaning to fix up and wear.

Just FYI, if you would consider thrift/consignment clothes, those are pretty common in the thrift stores I've been to, so you may want to check there.
