    Hello everyone,

    I'm trying to find a perfect navy blazer. My budget is about £700 and live in London. I'm just a little lost for ideas. I want something that'll last and will become my trusty go-to jacket. I like a decent lapel with a great roll, and I like lots o suppression in the waist. I would be very greatfyl indeed if anyone would suggest a few ideas.

    Thanks in advance to anyone who replies. Nasty and unhelpful remarks are welcome (#styleforum).

    Hey thanks for the suggestion. I think the styling on that blazer isn't quite right for me: the lapels are narrow and the jacket length and button stance is a bit high for my taste. Nonetheless, thanks for putting an option on the table.

    What about getting one made at George's at about this price level?

    Fine, but this is in New York, the OP appears to live in London!

    Thanks for the suggestions guys. I can't say G&H excites: styling is ugly generally, and now it's Chinese owned, and also you can pick up their suits for £200 discounted.

    I am based in London, and bear in mind my budget is $1100+, so I'm hoping for something really special. I'm 36R if anyone has something to sell, btw.

    Rubinacci RTW has caught my eye recently - anyone have any experience? A blazer starts at around £900, and there may be sales on within a month.

    Thanks again for your replies.
