    Casual Navy blazer suggestion

    Looking for a navy blazer suggestion, leaning towards casual. 42L.
    Was considering the LL Bean signature flannel blazer that got mentioned
    a while back. Any other thoughts. Would like to keep it in the sub $200 range.

    The Navy Birdseye blazer from BR that Joe mentioned could be a good option.

      oops. meant to mention, would prefer 2 button . Otherwise I'd say the BR would be spot on.

        I've got it, and it's a 3-roll-2. It ends up looking kinda like this. In effect, it's a 2 button.

          The blazer in the first link is this: http://bananarepublic.gap.com/browse...eID=brafcid105

          The navy birdseye is this: http://bananarepublic.gap.com/browse...&pid=235821002

          The 2nd is 3/2, the first is just 3.

          Not sure which you actually have bjmcgeever, but I agree the birdseye would be a good choice. I've been eyeing it myself.

            You could try itailor.com
            not sure of other places, I also have my measurements pretty much dialed in for MTM stuff though.

            I think total cost is about $120.

              My bad. I linked to the wrong post. I have the birdseye and it is indeed 3/2.

                Hadn't noticed that birds eye before, would totally hit the mark. Except there's no 42L's, I think god's f'ing with me...

                  I order a lot of stuff from here. It's mostly italian brands that I've never heard of, but the quality is nice and the prices are great. Nice return policy and no taxes.

                      I got this Lands End Canvas Anderson Navy Blazer: http://canvas.landsend.com/pp/mens-a...244375_-1.html

                      It's $250 but if you wait for sales you might be able to get it under $200.I think they have semi-regular 30% off sales. I got mine for $125 in-store after Xmas.

                      It's 100% wool. The color is on the light end of navy blue, not a super-dark blue that would be confused with black. It has no shoulder pads so that tends to make it look more casual. The fabric has some texture. It's cut slim; I have to suck in my gut a little to make if fit when it's buttoned, and I have to wear a lightweight shirt. I can't wear a sweater under it.
