    Looking For a Dark Blue/Navy Wool Blazer

    Hey guys. I'm looking for a wool or wool-blend blazer, preferably in dark blue. Anyone have spotted some and have suggestions?

    Any input is greatly appreciated.

    Do you have a budget in mind?

    Any other preferences, such a number of buttons, single or double breasted, notch or peak lapel?

    Sorry I forgot to put in more details in my original post.

    I'm looking for a single breasted one, notch lapel. Three buttons would be ideal, but two buttons will do as well.

    I'm not looking for designer labels. Below 350 pounds would be great.

    Well, such an item is affordable on any budget, I picked up a similar sports coat to this description the other, though it 2 button, for 20 dollars, which is like £12, second hand. May I suggest you get one with two buttons, unless you are quite short, it is far more flattering.

    That's not a bad budget at all, so you'll definitely find something good.

    If it were me, with that money I'd buy this:

    Ted Baker Two Button Wool (£299)

    Mens Coats | Designer Blazers & Leather Jackets For Men - Ted Baker

    It's only two button, I know, but I have a soft spot for Ted Baker detailing. I think you get a lot of bang for your buck: Paul Smith style quirky English gent styling for half the price. It's 100% wool so will last well. And just look at that lining!

    There are some new tweed jackets for this AW that have me drooling too.

    Overall that is a very nice suggestion, Jay. However, I would be worried that those pronounced pockets would widen my hips too much for my liking.

    Thanks Jay for the suggestion- that's exactly the color I'm looking for! If it was three button it would be absolutely perfect (however I do agree with WinterShorts that the pockets are a tad bit too pronounced.)

    At WinterShorts- I'm looking for a three button one because I already have a two button blazer and I also want a less "typical" or "standard" jacket. May I ask where you got your sports coat you mentioned in your post by the way?

    By the way Jay, are those tweed jackets you speak of from Ted Baker as well?

    That Ted Baker blazer is amazing! I'd go for two buttons too - find three button jackets really unflattering on most people. There were some Prada ones last season that looked good but I haven't seen anything similar at an affordable price.
