Sweater Blazers?

I can't remember if I saw this recently on the WAYWRN or Sartorialist or gilt or all 3, but where can I find wool sweater/blazers? Functionally they are kinda like those shawl collar sweaters, except the collar isn't that ridiculous shawl pattern, and there are no embroidered eskimos across the front. I guess they are also like cardigans, but with a distinct notch lapel collar which can be flipped up. I think 3 buttons or even 3+1 more at the high lapel would work great. Single chest pocket. Tab button at the lapel. Leather elbow patches? Here is an RLPL with horrendous details and too expensive, but functionally what I am referring to: http://www.ralphlauren.com/prod-12/3....3383641.shtml

I had one made for me. It's nice, but I find that I have very little use for it. A regular sportcoat usually works just as well if not better.

Avon Celli also make a spectacular version in cashmere. I have it in navy and wear it constantly.

Did Anna make yours? I wanted mine to be more like a jacket, but it came out more like a sweater.

No. RTW from Rubinacci. Ribbed blue cashmere, and definitely a jacket.

Mine is extremely fitted:

Trying to put it on after the holidays depresses me.

Foof yours definitely looks like a jacket, I say she listened to you well. Looks good

I think a big difference between looking sweaterish vs. jacketish is the shoulder, a completely flat or near-seamless shoulder makes it look much more like a sweater. I'm even picturing a regular knit sweater construction on the shoulder instead of sewn onto the sleeve.
