      Thanks for the input guys, I guess you live and learn, that was a major fail. Here are some pics of me in a Stafford Prep blazer for $35 at jc penny, I still have the tags. Any input on this? worth keeping as a casual jacket? should I return? I feel like it's a biiittt boxy on the sides, but other than that it fits pretty well.

        For $35 I feel like that is a decent casual jacket. There is a bit of extra room around the sides and the body length is a bit on the short side, but neither of those things is the end of the world.

          Much better, your $35 purchase came out much better than your $60 one.

            sweeet. Would you suggest getting the sides taken in a bit?

              I got that same blazer myself. For what we paid, yeah, it's a nice jacket. Though the lapels seem to want to unfold after it's washed, I found. So you'll need to press them back after washing it.

                Yeah the material is quite sturdy and it has some cool details. Plus, it's totally machine washable, no need to dry clean. Does yours have the checkered red pattern under the collar/lapels? it's pretty cool. I feel like if it fit a little slimmer, it would be the ultimate casual jacket, which is why im debating taking it in by just a bit. I'm 6-1 155 so I have to take virtually all my tops in at the sides, a total headache...except for old navy shirts for some reason lol.

                  Mine has a blue stripe fabric under the collar, the lapel is the same as the body on both sides.

                    Hey guys,

                    I picked up this blazer from CM today and wanted to know your opinion about the fit.
                    I know it's a tad shorter from what most guys on Dappered prefer but I like my jackets to be on the short side mostly because I'm not that tall (5'7").

                    Thanks in advance for your comments and sorry about the crappy cellphone photo.

                      farhad: It looks good but as you already know it is a little too short. I understand why you prefer it though, I have similar concerns and prefer slightly shorter jackets.

                        It looks good but I'll never like that look in general.

                            I like the short look for blazers...but yeah it' s a bit too short for even me.

                              Feels a bit too trendy.

                                what's CM? it looks like it fits pretty well and I don't mind the shortness on this one for you.
