Wonders of the World: Tailored Blazers

Wonders of the World: Tailored Blazers

dapper blazer

(via: dapperQ)

Brynna asked: “Love the blog! I have a question about blazers though. I want one so badly, since I think it is the thing to tie a lot of items in my wardrobe together, and to easily look polished. However, this seems to be the worst item of clothing for me to find. In the women’s section, they end up being enormous in the arms and chest if I’m able to button them closed, and the men’s section leave me drowning in fabric. Where should I look, and how crazy is it to have a blazer altered? Thanks”

It may sound crazy, but I swear by shopping for blazers in thrift stores. Thrifting is like being in 50 stores at once, and if, like me, you still haven’t found the blazer of your choice in a retail store, it’s definitely the way to go. In thrift stores you can easily shop for women’s and men’s blazers at the same time. You can also explore a variety of cuts, colors, and sizes all on the same rack. And it’s affordable — I’ve never spent more than $10 for a blazer (And never more than $50 after having it tailored.) You may need to be patient, as you never know what you’ll find in each trip. But if you keep at it, you’ll find something great.

Getting a blazer tailored is one of the best choices I’ve ever made for my wardrobe. In the past, I’ve had the shoulders of a blazer taken up. This is the most expensive alteration to make on a blazer (it cost me $30). You can also get a blazer taken in in the waist. As with any alteration, a tailor cannot add fabric where there is none. This video from Put This On demonstrates what to look for in fit for blazers. DapperQ also put together some helpful fit tips in this post. After the tailoring, you may also want to get it dry cleaned to get it smelling brand new again.

So, If it’s in your budget, I highly suggest investing in at least one tailored blazer. After all, a tailored blazer is tied with Beyonce’s halftime show for the 8th wonder of the world.

Good luck, and I hope you will let us know how it works out!
