Back when I was a baby lawyer, I used to work in a courthouse and had to wear a suit every day. I didn’t mind it much in the winter, but the summer was another story. It was impossible to keep my suits from getting sweaty, and it was unrealistic to dry clean them after every wear.
I don’t wear suits as often anymore but still do for court. Back when Banana Republic began selling their Washable Italian Wool-Blend Blazer, I immediately ordered one, along with matching pants. Since that first iteration, they’ve expanded their cuts and colors, but I am partial to the Classic Fit. While I often wear it as a traditional suit, I’ve worn just the blazer with a pair of jeans for an elevated Casual Friday look.
The navy looks pretty close to the one I have, and if I ever find myself in need of more blazers, I would definitely add the black one to my collection. As with many of Banana Republic’s blazers, the Classic Fit comes in a range of sizes as well as petite, regular, and tall.
The blazer is on sale for $99 and is available in navy and black in regular sizes 0–20, petite sizes 00–14, and tall sizes 2–16. Classic-Fit Washable Italian Wool-Blend Blazer
P.S. Here are some matching pants options, also on sale, in regular and petite sizing: Logan Trouser-Fit Washable Wool Blend Pant, Avery Straight-Fit Washable Wool-Blend Ankle Pant, Ryan Slim Straight-Fit Washable Italian Wool-Blend Pant, Curvy Ryan Slim Straight-Fit Washable Wool-Blend Pant.
