Jacket #7, My Take On A Navy Blazer

This was my take on a navy blazer. Two things to note: 1. I used a shawl collar because I was tired of having the same notched lapel on every blazer I owned. 2. I used one button a la Huntsman rather than the traditional two. I wanted something extremely simple. A blazer you just popped on or off very casually. We used a Holland and Sherry wool on this one and the blue piping was slightly different which gave it a nice subtle contrast. The shawl is 4cm - which is slim by 70's standards for a shawl but I think the right size for 2011.

The highs: It is very simple to wear.The buttons are Holland & Sherry anchors in gold metal. Very durable sturdy buttons.

The lows: The shoulder pads are too heavy and feel a little 80's to me. I would have preferred a softer shoulder for this more casual look.
