    Looking for a good unstructured summer beater (linen blazer?)

    Something to layer over tshirts and just a general workhorse. Uniqlo had a good one a few years ago, but it's since... deceased.

    J Crew has a pretty good one in cotton-linen, depending on what colors you want. They had a really sharp looking blue a few years ago I keep hoping they'll bring back.

      Target Goodfellow made a great one, kinda light, in cotton/linen last summer, but I can't seem to find it now. Maybe it's online on secondary retailers?

        I like this one from Bonobos.

          If you get one that's 100% linen, you'll be a mess.

            I picked up this Wallace and Barnes blazer in khaki a little while ago, at half-price. I like it.

              It's pretty nice, the one I was thinking of was the unsuit, a more formal style.

                Spier has several, including in their sale section. Tan cotton stretch for 99 bucks is hard to beat. I have it in suit form. Light brown linen at 150 is a good get as well.

                  Why not try Yoox? Might have to do some sifting through the really loud stuff, but I just picked up a couple cotton/linen jackets for $130 total. You are looking for an Italian styled jacket anyway. Might as well go directly to the source.

                    J Crew will undoubtedly release this year's version of the linen "unsuit" at some point this spring if they haven't already. With luck on a discount code those can be had for not much money. I got the Moon Mills wool-cotton herringbone one this winter for $45 - it's the fall/winter version of the summer unsuit line. It didn't hit that price until just after Christmas though so you may have to wait a few months before the summer ones are that heavily discounted.
