Q&A: Where to Find Long, Hip-Length Blazers

July 19th, 2007

Q:  What would be a good place/store to buy a long blazer?

Theory Rory Tailored JacketA:  Now that cropped styles and shrunken blazers are in style, it’s surprisingly difficult to find an old-school blazer that hits at the hip.  I’d recommend trying vintage stores and thrift shops to get the right style–at a good price.

However, if you’re looking for a brand-new blazer, your best bet is to look at designers who specialize in suits, such as Ralph Lauren or Theory.  Check out department stores, which carry a larger selection of suits and blazers.

    Oh no. Not long ago, I gave 4-5 hip length blazers to a charity thrift store. Are they coming back in? Probably– I’ve had them for years and only recently let them go! :o

    Trends come and go so fast–in any case, depending on your figure, this look can be flattering or unflattering. If you’re longwaisted (e.g. short legs) like me, long hip-length blazers aren’t the best look. But if you’re shortwaisted, this is a very flattering look.
