The Getup: Business Casual Networking

Business casual can be tricky, khakis with no jacket can make you look like an intern, but with a blazer can be overdressed By choosing this light-colored linen blazer we strike a nice balance.

    This is a great look! I really need to invest in a nice blazer.

    For the price of those BR shoes (which aren’t worth the cost), you could buy some Cole Haan shoes. While not on the same level as Allen Edmonds or To Boot NY, the Cole Haan’s will have a significantly longer life than the BR ones.

    I have to second Steve’s comment. The quality of BR’s shoes really doesn’t justify the price. They always “look” great, but up close the quality of the soles and the leather of the upper can be topped by DSW or Nordstrom Rack, in particular, DSW’s house brand, Mercanti Fiorentini. You can easily find leather-soled, decent quality dress shoes at either of these places for the same price.

    That blazer is so chopped it’s ridiculous. And I second what has already been said about those shoes. You could almost get Allen Edmond’s 2nd quality shoes right now till Labor Day for that price.

    H&M slim fit blazers seem to fit pretty well, or at least for me. Recently they had a sale where they marked down blazers to $30 and had a 50% off every on sale item deal. I got a blazer a lot like that one for $15 and I only had to have the sleeve length worked on. The quality isn’t amazing, but at $15 it’s literally unbeatable. It’s definitely smart to check by their website for deals like that occasionally.

    I don’t ususally have an occasion to wear a blazer but this ensemble is great and makes me want to “create” an occassion. This is well put together with a great sleek look. Love it.
