I'm on the hunt for a good quality black blazer - I had a knit version that I'm out of love with and no longer wearing and a black leather blazer that I adore but I don't always want to wear leather.
I would like a classic "no fuss, bells or whistles" kind of blazer. The kind that you can wear with dress pants to work on those days you need to be more corporate or can pop over a white tee and jeans, scrunch the sleeves, grab a great clutch and go to casual dinner with hubby. You know the kind...
Due to my recent eBay purchase of a Theory Lanai navy blazer, I am ALL OVER the quality of Theory. LOVE IT! Full stop. But I can't afford the full price. However, the very same eBay seller I bought my Lanai from now has the same size in a black Theory Gabe blazer.
Of course the Gabe is a completely different cut than the Lanai. The Lanai is great on my shoulders, probably a wee bit large in the upper bust area but not a deal break for me, and just barely fits my ample waist it it were a button style. The cut away style and shorter length work well on my petite apple frame.
Does anyone know how the Gabe would compare in fit and sizing to the Lanai? Would the Gabe be much too long on 5 foot me? Any info you have would be greatly appreciated :)
