So I'm looking for a rockstar blazer/sportcoat/jacket to wear over blank or graphic ts. It cant be thrift (I'm a weird size) or too expensive (<$100).

Any ideas?

I could imagine Guess, DKNY Jeans, Marc Ecko Cut &amp; Sew and Kenneth Cole NY will have something you are looking for in your budget.

^^ My guess is those blazers with designs, stitches and swarovsky crystals in the back or all over the jacket.

Those &quot;rockstar blazers&quot; are the ugliest, tackiest things.

I'm going to optimistically believe that the OP is searching instead for something new wave/punk rock influenced i.e. something with slim lapels and a slim fit, in which case I would direct him to look for Paul Smith on sale or check out this forum's own Thick as Thieves.

^^ It's possible but everytime I think of "rockstar" blazers, I always imagines it being studded.

Also, even on deep discount, it might be very difficult to find a PS blazer for less than $100.

^They do pop up on ebay for around $100, but you are right, it would be difficult to find one for cheap.

Still, a slim pinstripe PS is the first thing that comes to mind when I think fashionable rockstar jacket.

100$, no thrift. Go to H&amp;M and get a black slim blazer. Aside from that I have no idea. I think (hope) he's referring to the now ubiquitous DH look.

well he is wearing it over a graphic tee, so i would bet it is one of those hideous blazers.

I only wear plain white now but some graphic tees are nice, especially those by Japanese brands like Hysteric glamour, Lad Musician and similar. I even like (and wore) a bunch of threadless tees.

Eh...sorry for my ambiguity. I didn't mean anything tacky or gaudy. I used the phrase rockstar to distinguish it from a blazer that would go with a more dressy look. I'm thinking blazer like Keith Richards or The Strokes.

I really think thrifting is the best option here. I don't understand your problems with size, most thrift stores will have sportcoats by chest size instead of S, M, L, XL like you would find at H&amp;M. Plus, $100 sportcoats are horrible.
