Macy’s INC International Concepts Blazer – $69.98
Ignore the really bad T-shirt underneath the blazer on the model. This is actually one of the best not too casual, yet not too stuffy blazers we’ve tried on in awhile.
The shoulders are natural, the fabric is cotton, but it still looks pretty sharp. Paired with a light gray pair of comfortable but still nice chinos, a white dress shirt, and a blue tie, this thing fits right in without any trouble at all. The stitching creates a very faint stripe, but it’s barely noticeable. It’s got a center vent, and a medium fits amazingly well off the rack for a 5’10” 165lb guy.
The INC brand can often lean unusually “edgy.” No weird stitching or embellishments on this blazer though. There’s a bit of an abstract pattern on the lining, but just on the back. And nobody sees it. It’s straightforward in it’s look, and well tailored in it’s body.
Perfect for going out with a pair of jeans and dress boots, or at the office with those previously mentioned chinos, this Blazer is right near the top of our list of our affordable ways to easily ratchet up your style.
*One Drawback: It’s a Macy’s “Everyday Value” So no special sales or discounts can be applied.
