I have found the ultimate Balmain double breasted blazer wannabe and its a whooping £1300 pounds cheaper than the actual real Balmain blazer.
I tend not to be that fussed by what the big name designers do, but I have seen the Balmain on a few occasions now and it thoroughly seduced me.
That's until I saw the price. All £1325 of it.
I'm not sure if I could ever truly justify spending that amount of money on a item of clothing, just thinking about it breaks me out into a cold sweat. But what I do appreciate is the designer brands setting the pace for the highstreet fashion industry, and then the high street stores following suit with their version of the latest must haves.
You can be guaranteed that for every time a designer brand releases a item of staple clothing, you can find the equivalent along the highstreet for a fraction of the price.
And thats exactly what has happened with the Balmain Double Breasted Blazer.
Misguided have realised the cult status of the Balmain and have released their very own version for a affordable £25. The beauty of this blazer is it immediately smartens up a outfit and makes everything appear more polished. But at the same time it can be dressed just as easily down.
I have literally worn this to death now, and I'm seriously considering ordering a new one to have as a back up.
I'm starting to realize why they say every wardrobe should own a fitted black blazer.
All other items that are worn are from Primani.
