    Italians have done a lot of evil in this world but their most heinous act was creating the *spit* unconstructed blazer

      They are much more comfortable to wear

      pretty much anything these days other than haute couture meme stuff trying to be richard gere 90s big shoulder, and some boomer tier suits from HSM or savile row is going to be unconstructed, how are you having a hard time with this?

      >how are you having a hard time with this?

      Because you haven’t posted any links + I want patch pockets. I don;t want it to look too formal.

        literally anything? j crew, brunello cucinelli, zara, vineyard vines, brooks bros, kiton, suitsupply, isaia, john varvatos, rlpl, temu, cesare attolini, what do you want me to fly to your home and measure you too then sit down and advise you on your budget based on an analysis of your income, age, and retirement goals? you’re describing the default casual jacket in the present time

            unironically are uniqlo blazers okay for a first casual blazer?

            I usually wear polos and button downs and thought of maybe picking up a blazer just to see how it is and don’t want to spend over $200 in case I don’t end up using it much. I’m in Japan if it matters

            What’s your age/price range?
            Honestly I would suggest either Our Legacy or going through etsy until you find a nice vintage piece. Do you have any particular colours or styles of blazer you are looking for? If so post an example

            about 8 years back, I got a uniqlo blazer and took it to my favorite (expensive) tailor and said make it perfect, I don’t care what it costs, if you want to detach the shoulders, you have my permission

            so he spent some time pinching and poking and stuff, quoted me a hilarious amount (at least $200 but I don’t remember exactly), and said come back in 2 weeks

            so let’s say I spent $300 on that thing total. on the one hand, $300 for a uniqlo blazer is a bit steep, on the other hand, it looked great

            unfortunately the style and cut are now out of fashion so I don’t wear it anymore. but the point is, a mediocre blazer with a great fit is always going to be better than a great blazer with a mediocre fit

            At that point wouldn’t it be better to look into custom measurement stuff? Or is that usually way too expensive unless you’re doing it somewhere third world? I should have done that when I was in Vietnam…

            I’m worried about the Japanese uniqlo ones having very rectangular proportions since I have a 30" waist and 40" chest, but on the other hand they’re like 6500 yen so maybe it’s no big deal.

            Ideally <$300 but it seems the lower budget ones are mostly synthetics or at most a blend. Navy, casual. Maybe something like pic related? I just started looking into this the other day and it was just something I wanted to explore with since I don’t need it for work (tech – at most you see chinos/polos). I think the most formal I’d wear this would be with chinos and a white OCBD without a tie, and would also like something that wouldn’t look out of place with less formal too.

            In that case look into Issey Miyake, if you are in Japan you woukd defs be able to find something for quite cheap. If you want something more standard looking then for sure our legacy or engineered garments.

            >Issey Miyake

            It looks like it’s mostly all ~$1000 there. I have the money but I don’t want to spend that and then find out that I don’t actually end up like wearing blazers that much.

            I meant in thrift stores. I have some friends in Japan rn and they’ve copped a bunch of good shit. Actually I will say, you should hit up a thrift store first in general and find a blazer that fits well. Cop that (doesn’t matter if the blazer itself looks shitty, you are focusing on fit here) and then use that as a guideline for measurements if you order somethin online.

        Episode one was quite weak. A few decent moments, but mostly just limping along to the finish line. I’ll still watch, of course – it’s literally the greatest comedy series of all time.

        Accidentally blowing a $10 bill into the toilet of a hotel room with a hairdryer, and the maid thinking it was her tip that she had to fish out… decent. Leon talking about accidentally "dick-dialling" his phone in the front pocket… decent.

    I dont know if they are technically "unconstructed", but Spier & Mackay has a lot of jackets without any shoulder or chest padding.
