The search for an inexpensive men's blazer
So recently I've gotten a peacoat and a vest, so now I want to finish off my new additions with a blazer.

I've been looking around forever and it's pretty challenging considering my size and budget. You guys know much more about all the brands out there, etc. so I was hoping I could get some help.

What I was looking for is something like this ASOS blazer or Kenneth Cole blazer.

The problem is that I'm a 5' 7" guy at 110 lbs with a 34" chest who's looking for something under $100 at maybe 28" long or shorter. That Kenneth Cole might work but it looks like it may be too long and I like the ASOS style more.

I found this Forever 21 blazer but it says 38" chest and the sizes start at large, though I might still go to the store to try it on.

Anyway, any help or ideas would be awesome, and any additional suggestions for other clothing items are welcome and appreciated. =D

wow- ican't believe it's possible to find a decent blazer for under $200...

i would be inclined to go for the kenneth cole or some of the others on macy's website...
just because i imagine the quality to be better---and there is nothing good about a droopy blazer that doesn't hold it's shape because it isn't made well...

i guess zara might be a good option..but probably more expensive...

100 is very cheap for a blazer... I would think that the quality of any blazer for less than 100 would be poor. Poor quality garments wear and tear easily and look shabby after a single wash.

I would definitely suggest that you spend at least 200 on a blazer given that they are classical. It may be dear but you will get good wear out of any blazer you purchase
