    I couldn't live without my navy blazer. It is something every man should own at some stage in his life. [​IMG]

    I find the dark brown odd-jacket to be a lot more versatile than the navy one. And of course, I just can't see myself wearing one of those brass buttons ornamented abomination.

    I don't see the hate for the brass buttons... but whatever. I only like navy blazers when they're cut well and aren't a sack from Brooks Brothers or Ralph Lauren's main line.

    I definitely hate the navy blue blazer. I spit in its general direction.

    I wave my private parts in its general direction.

    LOL. So true. My next blazer may have metal buttons, but they will *not* be gold.

    But are not the buttons a defining element of the blazer? Take away the gilt and aren't you left with a navy odd jacket?

    I personally love blue blazers. Brass buttons or no, they're a staple of the wel-dresed man.

    Huh?

    Why not JA? Why all the hostility towards it?


    Because is...because is...for me it lacks flair or interest, like the Bush administration (either). I prefer pale salmon linen, sewn by Kiton. Charcoal herringbone wool, for fall and winter. Even plaid, if not of a dogbed pattern.

    John, you're a baddass. The blazer is for guys who are scared of color.
