✅ Two Blazers
A classic Goldilocks situation here. The checkered blazer is slightly too big and the velvet blazer is slightly too small.
The checkered blazer is from Brooks Brothers and I fell in love with it years ago, but couldn't justify the cost for something that is, let's be honest, pretty garish. Apparently I wasn't the only one that thought so and was able to pick it up on clearance sale. It was only made in a very boxy style so I then brought it in to get tailored and it's still a bit on the big side. I have worn this only once since moving to Los Angeles, when I MC'd the holiday party at my former employer and created a holiday quiz show. It's the perfect jacket for a quiz show host, but otherwise I'm not sure I need to hang on to it. And as I mentioned, it's a little too big for me.
The blue velvet blazer I love, even though I typically only wear it to year end holiday parties. But it's a bit snug and I can't quite button the bottom button and be comfortable. So while I like it, I don't really wear it anymore. So why am I keeping it? I don't currently have a decent "evening" jacket alternative. But is that a reason to keep it?
