Hello folks. I'm new to posting, but I've been lurking for a while. Here's my dilema: I've started a new job and need a quick update to my wardrobe. For the past five years, I've been in a basic IT job, ie. cords and sweaters. I've just started a new job as an IT consultant and I need to quickly update my wardrobe. A suit's too formal considering the clients that I'll be working with. I'm considering a sportscoat, but I have no idea where to start. I've got quite a few dress pants, in taupe, khaki olive and various shades of grey. Dress shirts and ties to match are covered. What would you recomend as a first jacket to get? Due to some recent weight loss, my basic blue blazer now fits like a sack. Would my money be best spent getting a better fitting blazer, or would you have some better suggestions? I'm 5'8", 170lbs with a 44" chest and 36" waist, dark brown hair and medium complexion if that mattersI'd like to get the most for my money, which translates to under $1000 Cdn. Looking forward to your suggestions, as this is the best style forum I've found. Thanks in advance.
