the sid mashburn navy blazer

navy-blue-blazer_01

sid mashburn’s email campaign is a cut above the rest (which is not surprising in the least bit).  a couple of weeks ago, he sent out an email on the navy blazer.  if you clicked on the link, it takes you to a page that goes into great detail regarding the fabric, the cut and the construction of this timeless jacket.  there’s also an 8 minute video of sid discussing the importance of the navy blazer.  he calls it “every man’s coat.”  i tend to agree.  if you don’t have a go-to navy blazer in your closet, then you need to save your nickels and dimes and go pick up one up.  holiday party season is coming.  why not impress your friends and the ladies by showing up in a new tailored navy blazer.

here again is the link to sid’s page.  it’s worth checking out.  trust me.  at the bottom of the page he has several pictures of when and how to wear the navy blazer (example below).  excellent work.

l.b.m. 1911 single breasted jacket

lbm1911

i’ve wanted one of these l.b.m. 1911 jackets for a couple of years now.  i made a promise to myself in late 2012 that i couldn’t buy one until i dropped the extra 25 lbs i’ve been carrying around for 2 years.  good news: the weight is finally gone (more on that in a couple of posts) and i’m ready to make the purchase.  i’m not sure how these things fit, so my plan is to stop by haberdash when i’m in chicago next month and get fitted.  it’s a shame too, because i have a couple of good trips before chicago where a unstructured, light-weight, slim-fitting jacket would come in handy.  i’m thinking i’ll go with the navy.  my backup color will be the green version.  if you have one, please share with me which color you chose and if you like it.  i can’t imagine i won’t like this jacket.  for more info on l.b.m, check out the description from epaulet’s site (which is where i grabbed this image.  thanks, guys).
