    building out my blazer collection

    I have a j crew dark navy, that I mostly use for personal use. I want some every day work blazers. Thoughts on these?


    1. Hopsack bonobos-300

    2. mid blue j crew wool -180

    3. j crew tweed grey -130

    Up for any suggestions in the price range of 300. I worry about getting another navy jacket when I have one already. but the hopsack and the mid blue are pretty different than a dark navy wool

    I wouldn't call those blue jackets navy by any means. I had a J Crew tweed and loved it but it was a little tight so I sold it. Damned thing was like wearing a blanket outside.

    The place work went casual a few years back, so it's only for stepping out with my wife. It's really more of a summer jacket and I tend to lean towards how they style it in the picture (white or light color slacks).

    I was thinking of wearing it with black jeans.

    I think that would work. When I'm in doubt, I always try google. Something like "light blue blazer with black jeans". You will probably come up with enough similar images to get an idea. I consult google all the time when I'm thinking of adding something new to my wardrobe.
