Casual blue blazer for summer
March 15, 2010 6:22 PM   Subscribe

Where can I find a somewhat casual, good quality blue blazer made of cotton, linen, or a cotton/linen blend?

I like to wear blazers that are not too dressy, that would go well with jeans or other casual pants/trousers. During the winter and fall I have a favorite corduroy blazer I wear, and I'm looking for the summer counterpart to that. This and this are along the lines of what I am looking for, but I would like some other options.

Any ideas?

Best answer: Might be too casual, but check out the L.L. Bean Signature line. Just released today.

Best answer: I like your Brooks Bros. options. This is similar, but less dressy.

Best answer: If you're a 40, 44, or 46, this is a good deal.

Best answer: J. Crew? Banana Republic? I think Banana Republic has a line of chino suits available though I'm not sure navy is a color they offer. They do have frequent sales though.

Duluth Trading's Presentation Jacket might be just the thing. While I don't have this item, everything I've ordered from Duluth has been top quality.

I picked up this other one from Brooks and it's quite nice. Well made and has a flattering slim cut. It's much nicer in real life than the photo online.
