Gap Unlined Herringbone Blazer – $39.99
There just isn’t anything wrong with an unlined, unstructured, cotton blazer. And to find one on the sale rack at the Gap for under $40.00 is a deal to take advantage of. The Herringbone pattern is extremely faint so, it looks more like just a solid Navy cotton Blazer. Pair it with darker jeans and a nice pair of boots if you’re going out at night. Or, a trim cut pair of chinos, any cotton shirt (keep it simple, more simple than the pic on gap.com), and whatever you want on your feet for work or dinner.
It’s easy to throw on, it won’t make you too warm, and it gives a serious upgrade to the pants and shirt look.
One drawback = The sleeve button holes are actually cut. Which was an attempt to upgrade the look but in the end will make it impossible for your tailor to bring up the sleeve length to show a 1/4 inch of shirt cuff. Have your tailor bring in the sides of the jacket, and deal with the longer sleeves. It’s a casual jacket, don’t get to bent out of shape over it.
