The Blue Blazer (Thanks, OTC)

Off the Cuff posted about the Blue Blazer this morning. It is a great post – one worth reading (actually, the entire blog is great – give it a read). I thought I’d share my experience: The blue blazer is the workhorse of my closet. I work in a ‘business casual’ environment, but it is […]

Great find with #3

Brian – great advice.

L.A.S – no DB yet. One day…

OTC – thank you very much for the kind words…come back and see us!

Skip – Nothing wrong with the J. Crew blazer. I've tried them on in the store, and like the fit.

It's funny how you can have three of pretty much the same thing but they will each have different roles.

I also have different types of khakis of different materials for different situations. I think a blue blazer plain or minimal patterning, a button up and khakis is one of the best and most versatile outfits there is!

The classic blue blazer: an indispensable wardrobe item. I've had every conceivable material, button configuration, tailoring. I wear them at least once per week and usually more. They are as versatile as anything in the closet.
