    I need a new blazer, haven't shopped for one in years and thinking about this one as a less pricey alternative to J Crew Legacy but don't know anything about the brand and can't find a web site for them. Anyone have any thoughts about this brand? Is this a Nordstrom Rack house brand?

    Seems like a good deal at $150 but of course it will never be sold at the claimed regular price. I like the partial lining, subtle two-tone fabric and two tone buttons (the backs are brown). 1.5% lyrca. Wider lapel than current styles but doesn't seem too bad. Anything I should look for when I check it out in person again?

    Also a 100% wool version that may be fully lined (and many other varients, linen, cotton, patterns, etc.):

    I have 2 Ibiza jackets. (I did not buy either at NR - so its definitely not a house brand.)

    I quite like mine. They are decidedly casual and very functional. The styling in pretty modern.

    They are more RTW than OTR - in that I don't think they get tailored very often.

    Thanks. I ended up getting a Banana Republic suit since there was a deal I couldn't refuse and it fit well. Not exactly bespoke but it seemed pretty nice (Italian wool) and I won't wear it often.
