J. Crew Schoolboy Blazer in Mixed Stripe

Hi Everyone!

I'm a little behind responding to comments, but I will catch up this weekend!

I grabbed the J. Crew Schoolboy Blazer in Mixed Stripe when I was in the retail store earlier this week.  I LOVE this blazer.  Here are a few IRL pictures:

A closer look at the sleeve:


I'm wearing the J. Crew Tippi Sweater in Neon Azalea under this blazer.  I took my normal size 12 in this blazer.

What do you think of the J. Crew Schoolboy Blazer in Mixed Stripe?  Do tell!

I have a review of the Liberty Perfect Shirt in Lodden Paisley scheduled for tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by!

  6. Rynetta, thanks for the review of this blazer! I love it! I ordered a pearl grey wool schoolboy along with my liberty print blazer because the weather is still very cold where I am, but I'm thinking I should have ordered this instead! I also picked up the navy tipped boyshirt to wear under my liberty blazer, not sure how it's going to turn out! Thanks again for the reviews!

  7. That's really cute on you! If you cuff the sleeves, is it the small reverse-stripes inside like on the collar?

  8. Rynetta,

    I saw this jacket on my last visit to the store. It's gorgeous and I love that the variation in stripe makes it a little different from other retailer's rendition of the stripe jacket.

  13. I love this blazer, so sharp looking! I tried the striped Maritime blazer last year but it was too thin and limp looking - this version looks much better. Thanks for the review!

  15. I love this blazer - definitely will be picking this up whenever spring decides to make an appearance around here! It looks fantastic with the neon azalea - I had actually ordered the tippi previously (on super sale)with a wait list of February/January, and then my order was cancelled last month. Jcrew did honor the price (and free ship) when the item restocked - yay! Thanks for sharing, Rynetta! :)

  16. Hi Rynetta,
    Picture this: When I went to try on new arrivals last week, the SA brought this blazer to my fitting room and created this outfit: The chambray open circle button down with the mixed stripe blazer with the liberty toothpick jeans in junes meadow all belted with a light purple belt. I loved all the pieces--but separately!! It was too many different patterns on me!!! Floral, stripes, open circles--I was getting dizzy. Anyways, glad u got both blazers-i have to decide which one I like better--thanks for the reviews!
