    I have the JCrew Wool Hacking Blazer. It was the best splurge of my life. When you get it in the right size (I had to exchange it once for a 4) it flows so nicely and it makes every outfit look amazing.

    Thanks for the tip about the J Crew Wool Hacking Blazer, Jessie! It has a great cut, and for superb tailoring, it can be worth the splurge.
