    Blue Blazer

    I posted a while ago about wanting to find a casual navy blue blazer but am yet to find one I like and that's in my size. I'm a 36inch chest. Ideally want a single vent and fairly classic without any gimmicky embroidered bits or anything that will look out of fashion in a few months.

    I want something like this (although it is sold out)

    The Colmworth Blazer | Jack Wills

    I want one like the above where the colour is navy blue but has more of the blue tint to it than dark, verging on black. So many "navy" blazers almost seem so dark as if to be indistinguishable from black - I want a definite blue undertone navy blazer - plus I find having a slightly lighter navy makes it more casual than being very dark navy.

    ASOS | ASOS Slim Fit Suit Jacket in Indigo at ASOS

    or

    ASOS | ASOS Slim Fit Suit Jacket in Navy at ASOS

    Depending on preferred colour. I have the lighter one and it's great for the price.

    Thanks, but not sure on quality of Asos really and how long it will last + might be just a tad too short

    Fair enough, it is a fairly short cut. What kind of budget are you looking at?

    Yeah, the one I posted in my original link is just slightly longer. Probably up to 200.

    Just showing this as an example (it's double vent and perhaps too dark) but M&S do sell some great blazers, which fit excellently and - if you shop around - are extremely good quality for the price. If you ever have the chance to go to one of their mega-stores, the selection can be pretty incredible.

    Ted Baker do an awesome one in a lovely colour, however it's sold out online. It may be worth seeing if you could find it at store level if there are any near you? (If you like it that is)

    I'm quite chuffed with my Holland Esquire Blue Linen one off TK-Maxx, if there's any left. Purely a seasonal piece though and they might not have it in your size

    SuitSupply might be a good shout. They have this beauty which is a gorgeous blue (although peak lapels aren't to everyone's taste). At 229 it's just a tad over your budget but there a couple more on the site which are a slightly darker blue at 199.
