    What Blazer Should I Buy With My Christmas Money?

    Merry christmas everyone! I was thinking of using some of my christmas money to buy a new blazer. I only have one atm, which is a brown cord one from Topman. I was thinking of a tweed one, but I'm still open to other suggestions.

    Basically, my budget is up to £150. If it goes with navy chinos that would be a plus because I don't own a blazer which goes with them.

    Thanks guys

    check out the Burton Heritage collection, they've got a grey and brown tweed slim fit suit blazer for £129, 100% wool.

    The Burton Heritage collection looks great. I'm tempted by a cardigan from there, but am worried it might make me look too Val Doonican.

    Their Gunpatch blazer is really lovely at £129 (also in grey):



    The more I look at it, the more I'm tempted to get it myself.

    Never would have even considered Burton before, but that collection looks lovely. Only problem is, like you Jay, my eyes have been drawn by the knitwear now!

    Whats the consensus on Allsaints blazers?

    I'm not a fan of Allsaints tailoring. It's too unstructured and 'worn' looking or my taste.

    What size are you? Because this grey Donegal wool jacket from Holland Esquire is down from £3360 to £149. It's only in a 36" though.

    Buy a vintage tweed blazer, get tailoring and elbow patches. You will be rewarded with the cut you want and all for less money than even a Topman's blazer.

    It's your lucky day if you get in there fast at the Mr Porter sale:

    This is reduced from £300 to £150:
