    Burgundy Blazer

    I want to get a nice casual burgundy blazer. Not really after burgundy trousers, just the blazer.

    Any recommendations around London?

    I seem to remember someone on this forum purchased this suit jacket from Next and was very pleased with it: Buy Regular Fit Suit: Jacket from the Next UK online shop

    I've also coming to the conclusion lately that if you're going to buy double-breasted, don't go cheap: you can just tell more for some reason.

    Liking the Zara one. Always find the quality of Zara's clothes to be a cut above the other high street stores. Funny as well, given that their prices are generally the same if not in some cases cheaper.

    I do like the Zara one as well. It says the material is 97% polyester...is that a bit of a no-no, wearing polyster blazers?

    As long as something's under 80 or so, I don't make a fuss about material composition, though obviously a better composition would be preferable.

    It's a nice jacket, though once again I would stress that it's a bit short. You can get away with this look if your young, but if you're remotely tall I think overly short jackets can accentuate your height and make you look a bit odd.
