I had a little luck at the Junior League Thrift Store a weekend or so ago. While I don’t buy that many blazers anymore, I always give that rack a look when I’m thrifting. As I mentioned a while back, I love the Sid Mashburn Silk Matka sport coat, but never pulled the trigger. When I came across this vintage sport coat from Brooks Brothers, I was pumped: This green is not a four-season look (the Sid model certainly is), as it’s a little mint-y in color. Regardless, I love the fabric, as well as the lighter buttons. It boasts a casual tone that will go so well with a spectrum of outfits. Different options: APCs and a blue gingham shirt, or white Levi’s and a perfect blue oxford… This jacket will be the centerpiece of an outfit. With a jacket like this, you don’t want to get too fancy, because you don’t want to look like you are in costume. And you don’t want to be a clown. Keep in mind, the menswear spectrum has loosened up over the last few years where we’ve moved beyond the limits of a blue blazer and a gray suit. We’re adding more color to our pallet, which is a good thing. With this opportunity comes great responsibility. So do it right. I have to get the sleeves let out about an inch and a half and we are in business. What say you? You like?
