    I'm looking to buy my second blazer and I think I have it narrowed down to these three from SuitSupply. I would like to get something that is pretty versatile as I won't be able to afford another one until I get my bar results and collect my first paycheck. Also, is the grey herringbone acceptable to wear with denim as shown in the photo? And what trouser/shirt combinations would work for the grey and brown?

    Thanks!

    the 2 brown ones look good and would go well with jeans

    You posted two heavier fall/winter jackets and one light linen/silk one. Are you trying to buy for winter or for summer? What kind of climate do you live in? Any of them would be fine with jeans, but you need to think about when you're wearing the thing. Seasonal jackets are probably too limiting if you don't have a few basics first.

    The other big question is what you have already. I presume a navy blazer? If not, get one of those.

    Are you limited to the Suit Supply pice point?
    What you've shown looks cheap and too trendy, IMHO

    I currently have a navy blazer; figured I would go with the staple first. I'm not limited to the SS price point. I could go up a bit if need be but not too much. I'm going to be working in Alabama but I will rarely be outside during the day due to work hours. I'm really just looking for something that I can wear year round.

    Any recommendations would be appreciated. I'm pretty green shopping for this stuff.
