Jeans plus a blazer may become my new Friday uniform.  It’s just really hard to go wrong with this combination.  The jeans keep it Friday casual but the blazer keeps it looking professional.  I recommend every one have at least one blazer in their closet.

This particular blazer I bought YEARS ago.  In fact, I even have a picture of me from 2007 wearing it.

Not that you can really tell since that’s a scan of a newspaper article about my previous job from 5 years ago.  But, I promise you, it’s the same blazer.

I didn’t spend very much money for it.  And sometimes I’m concerned that it looks kind of cheap.  But it fits so well and it’s so comfy that I’m hesitant to try and replace it.  I suppose, though, now that I know how much wear I can get out of a tan or camel blazer that I could start the search for a more upscale version.

What’s the oldest piece of clothing you still wear on a regular basis?
