Macy’s INC Ultra Light Blazer – $41.20 SHIPPED w/ code MACYSFF (reg. $59.00)
22.49 UPDATE: $30.74 post code and pre-shipping. (They just raised the price.) Code expires Monday 5/2/2011 Credit to Marcus for sending in the style tip about the striped unlined blazers that are now available online.
Bad shoulder pads and lining with poor movement are often the downfall of inexpensive blazers. The Macy’s house brand INC might have stumbled across a solution. Strip the blazer of those troublesome shoulder pads and deconstruct it down to just over shirt-weight, and there’s less to screw up.
Plus they’re cheaper. By quite a bit.
Their wrinkled gingham was the first version of these ultra-lights to break out of the gates, and it was popular enough that it’s still tough to find online. A few more patterns in this same actual trim fit have now worked their way into Macy’s and onto Macys.com, and when combined with the Friends and Family code MACYSFF these sportcoats drop to $30 a piece pre-shipping.
The new ones aren’t wrinkled like the gingham, the fabric feels a touch more substantial, and they’re still pure, unstructured, featherweight sport coats. Selection is limited online to just black or grey stripe versions, but in-store you might stumble across a Glen plaid or navy stripe. Look for the tags that have the original price of $59.00. Those should be them.
A Warning: Some Macy’s are just fine with price matching Macys.com if you can show them the price from the web, but others just won’t.
The code MACYSFF is good for 25% off site wide with some exclusions.
