Backup plan

It seems a bit prep and usually associated with uninspired work wear, but you should never overlook the classic blue blazer. I picked this on up a while back and haven't regret it since. This three button affair with patch pockets that can be paired with some grey flannel trousers, white or blue oxford shirt, and a set of brogues for a classic look. I specifically wanted an older style with a higher buttoning front, brass buttons, and a nice narrow lapel. The brand is Grenadier and unfortunately there is no year of manufacture on the jacket itself, but I was able to find this gem of advertising for the jacket ala 1967.  Add one or two details and you can easily give this ensemble some Suede street cred, or so I think.
