    I've been reading SF for a few months but haven't posted until now. I have a few classic suits in traditional colors (navy, charcoal, etc.) but like wearing more fashion forward jackets when going out sometimes. I saw this Prada blazer in the July 2014 GQ and really like the color and since there's effectively no chance of finding the original jacket I'm looking into finding a similar one or getting one custom made.

    Unfortunately I don't know what kind of color this is and thought the experts on SF might be able to help.

    Thank You!

    We call it "blue teal" or "marine blue": see how it has a green undertone beneath the blue? Hard to find from English woolen mills, but it can be found inf the Italian suitings books. Check out Vitale Barberis Canonico.
