I realize it’s fall, but for some reason I’ve been thinking a bit about chambray sport coats. Part of me gets excited, because it’s different. Another part of me questions whether I’d be personally comfortable wearing it and pulling it off.
But maybe it’s your thing? If so, then here are a few options worth considering. Since we’ve left the summer season, a few are even on sale now.
1.) Polo Ralph Lauren: $149.99 (on sale, save an additional 25% with code RLGIVE2010): This jacket received a decent amount of buzz around the blogosphere. It’s nicely unstructured, patch pockets with flaps and the white buttons give it a summer touch. Sadly, if you’re not a size 40R, then you’re out of luck snagging this at this price.
2.) Brooks Brothers, $149.00 (on sale): If you’re looking for a more structured jacket, flap pockets and a somewhat darker chambray coloring, then this might be up your alley. Also, quite a few more sizes to choose from (39R, 41L, 42L, 46L remain).
3.) Albam, $220.95: For those of you looking for a really casual look with chambray, this could be an alternative. The detailing may or may not be your thing, with some interesting stitching on the sleeves and a neck button along the lapel. You will have to ship this one over from the United Kingdom, however.
4.) Tommy Hilfiger, $52.99 (on sale): This is from the newer trim fit line at Macy’s, but it’s hard to tell how well it fits. Nothing really stands out about this jacket, but the price is certainly low enough, although the sizes still available are limited.
