    Not to hijack this thread, but I want to get a seasonal blue blazer made this month, and was wondering what winter weight fabrics people preferred. Any opinions?

    Exactly, Mike. People can search and find out for themselves what truly makes a jacket a blazer. It's not a debate I choose to get into.
    I posted my 2 go-to online button sources and a way to find local sources.

    Maybe hopsack - lighter than worsted wool and a good weight for fall, in my opinion. But get worsted wool if you want something you can wear throughout the entire winter, probably.

    So I received the garment, which I am now calling a SPORT COAT :), this morning. It fits tremendously well. Honestly, better than I thought it would. I don't think I'm going to even need to have it altered.

    It obviously isn't the finest of quality garments, but since I am really only going to sport this for casual events, I'm not too worried.

    Thanks for your help, everybody!

    I go with a 3 season dark/midnight navy with my undergrad crest as the blazer buttons and a summer cotton blazer with white MoP buttons. Darted double-vented due to my body type...
