i'm 5 11", slim, but with a slight beer belly, so anything too fitted is out
don't know - depends
£150 - 200?
Zara usually have some decent ones.
Zara is my answer to everything though.
i'm looking for something i can wear for a good few years
which fit well and aren't too expensive
and who can blame him
and the shorts that go with it
Usually has some alright ones for not too much money.
both have stuff in that price range, and there's sales still on dotted around.
or COS for slightly cheaper?
but I'm a similar build to you and find both brands never really fit me that well, all a bit boxy.
http://www.crewclothing.co.uk/wade-blazer-m01-1633-olive/ (in a darker, not horrible-green colour) for £120 in their sale at the start of the year. It's bloody lovely - fits like a glove, and whenever I wear it I get compliments from total strangers.
Worth having a look?
Your choices are:
Top Gear dad
Junior army officer
go to the high street or somewhere there's lots of shops
go into a few and find some blazers/jackets (mens stores mind)
try them on in front of a mirror to see how they look on you
pick the one that looks the best (within your price range)
someone needs a hug
Make sure you've got your pre-distressed brogues on to complete the look.
need to stop being a dick on ehre
If they're blue it's a bit Top Gear
harrington / leather jacket / denim then yeah not sure what else you'd wear with them.
i don't get why people are so anti this
probably don't pair a jacket with some spliffy jeans or anything
assuming it all fits properly, also the majority of folk on here rip about looking like this http://tinyurl.com/kqm3py7 so it's probably not the best place to seek sartorial advice
You can tell by whether they are sold separately.
but it might be a bit too expensive
I need the same. I have a grey blazer at the moment but I'm never really sure what to wear it with.
Im sure you'd look fit in whatever
