Shades Of Grey By Micah Cohen Corduroy 2-Button Blazer – $129.99 (reg. $198)
It’s just your average navy corduroy, patch pocket, grey tweed patched elbows… blazer.
This thing has a lot going on. Where to start. Probably the feature that everyone will first notice is the elbow patches. The lighter grey tweed jumps out. A lot. Maybe too much for some who prefer their elbow patches darker than the rest of the jacket.
The cut looks good and trim but the lapels aren’t hipster skinny. The length looks pretty short, and if it were made by BDG for Urban Outfitters, I’d say skip it. Those blazers are chopped so short that they’re awkward. What’s really odd about this blazer is the one, just one button on each sleeve cuff. Looks like it’s the exact same size as the buttons on the front too. Weird. Not a hard fix for you or your tailor if you want to tack a few more on there.

Need something that’s less of a risk? The Boden Everyday unstructured jacket is still on sale for $98.00. (UPDATE: It’s now on sale for $74. Skip this thing and go with the Boden…) Boden comes highly recommended, and the jacket looks superb. Some average sizes are still available too.
