    Default Blazers

    Blazers can be rocked with almost anything and in my opinion are a perfect touch for the casual business person, going to for groceries, going shopping, or simply driving around.

    What are the best brands/stores to find good slim fit blazers that are of good quality?

    Zara and Cos have a good selection, but I'm looking for some new stores.

    It all about the fit. "Best" are MTM or better yet, bespoke. You can drop $1K on a name brand but look like a duffle bag due to poor fit. Or, you can spend a few hundred on one tailored/made to fit your physique and look like you spent $1K.

    I'm in the same position, and fit is absolutely key. Went to a few different places, and although I could go with a moderately nice Jos A Bank or Macys jacket, I found a couple Hugo Boss jackets which run a bit more 'trim' at Nordstrom and Mark Shale for $499. After tailoring, it fit me exceptionally well and I couldn't be happier. The one element I really wanted was a slightly more trim profile particularly about the chest and abdomen, and one sales guy tried talking me into a 36r when I'm really a 38r; going smaller made things 'trim', but it was absolutely wrong. With the 38r, it fits perfectly and feels amazing. You should be able to find that feeling at nearly any price point, so price really comes down to how fine of materials and craftsmanship (and name) you want.

    you talk about brand of so called 'off the shelves' blazers

    it might be good, but bespoke blazers and suit will decimate the might of Zara when its fail to fit the body
    and a by the way, Zara nor Zegna blazers means nothing when compared with Kilgour or Ozwald Boateng

    for some reason, yes you got a right taste that blazers really 'shows up some luxury'. I feel that as well, and ended up own a brand of suit maker specialist

    Found a blazer from Armani that I tried on and fit pretty good without having it tailored to me. I know its not as expensive as some of the blazers you guys are listing but the way mine fits on me makes me feel like a baller! lol

    Come to London and get a small selection from Savile Row, fantastic choice and not as pricey as one would presume.

    Maybe a Ralph Lauren will be a good casual choice.. althought I will always prefer MtM or bespoke.
