Another great Collection item I was able to purchase was the Collection Schoolboy Blazer in Tipped Linen before the promo ended. Now, I have my lovely 95 Cent Blazer scored from Nordstrom Rack that I have worn quite a bit since purchasing. But a Linen Blazer was next on my list to buy.
This blazer does not disappoint and I only wish I was as eloquent and knowledgeable as xoxo to be able to describe this better. The linen is very lightweight and has biased-striped ribbon tipping. The tipping looks almost like seersucker. There area a few differences between this blazer and the non-Collection Tipped Linen Schoolboy. The buttons are flat on this blazer as opposed to crested buttons. The pockets are tipped and the tipping does not go all the way around the edge of the blazer.
This fits very well, though the sleeves are a little long on me. A size down would have been too tight in the shoulders and this does not come in Petites. I’ll probably just fold the cuffs anyway like I do my Schoolboy Herringbone Blazer from last year.
This blazer is definitely a keeper and I am so happy I took the plunge at the last minute with the promo. I’m sure my Brown Sancho is getting really tired of delivering to me this week. This is one piece going to NYC with me this Summer.
What do you think of the Collection Schoolboy Blazer? Do you think it’s “Collection-worthy”? I know J Crew seems to be adding the “Collection” word to most everything lately.
