I bought this heavy wool blazer almost two years ago at the end of the season from Banana Republic. It has pretty nice detailing, pick stitched lapel and double vents.
Here in Atlanta, it only gets cold enough for about 2.5 months during the year, but since I travel to cold weather climates for work, and home to Pittsburgh, it get its fair share use. It is also very durable on flights and does not show wrinkles. I stumbled upon it while doing some shopping in my own closet. I like to do that sometimes, just go through everything just to remind myself of what is in there.
I got the sleeves slimmed, and and tapered at the waist. I will start posting the costs for the alterations too, since I always get asked the question.
Here’s an up close shot of the material since it does not come through as well in the picture. The lighting made it comes across a little brown in this photo, but it is definitely grey.
(NOTE: The sleeves in the after shot are bunched up some around the elbow, I had pulled them up slightly, they do not normally bulge like that. I just wanted to clarify that the narrowing the sleeves didn’t cause that)
