Should I pull the trigger on this Isaia blazer on STP?

    What do you think of this blue blazer? I need to replace my old Zegna Performance blazer as it is getting too snug. I am a little concerned that this Isaia is 3-button (going out of style fast) and maybe the 150s fabric is too flimsy. What do you think? I have a 20% off coupon. Can I find better if I monitor eBay?

    First off, classic 3-roll-2 buttoning isn't going out of style anytime soon. Looks like a very nice jacket. Sure, if you watched ebay for a while you could probably get a slightly better deal, but not much. Plus you have the security of STP's very good return policy. I'd go for it.

    It's a classic blazer and if the price is right for you, then go for it.

    I can't imagine where you would go wrong on this. Sounds like you have a need for it and I would definitely pull the trigger if I were in your shoes.

    I don't think this will go out of style, especially given the button stance.

    I wouldn't call the 150 fabric flimsy (which at least to me sounds like implying poor construction).

    It's true a 150 will be somewhat delicate, but I think this is far more of an issue for suits, where the seat and knees will sure wear sooner than you'd like or expect.

    I have a 150 RLPL blazer that I like a lot. It's truly four season and very versatile.

    Looks like you found an excellent deal. Wish I would have seen it when there was more size availability.

    It's nice but it looks like an orphaned suit coat. It will look better imo if you replace the buttons with horn.
