Where can I go for a tweed blazer for £200-300 (no nigel farage)?

love the look of the Margaret Howell one but maybe a bit more structured and costly

I've decided everyone looks scruffy at work and want an everyday classic wool flannel suit. Any good options these days other than M&S and Next?

Barena maybe?

I think it might be called Torceo, but if you’re after an alternative for budget reasons don’t if that helps

Cheers I love Barena stuff on the peg but it never suits me.

Thinks I'd prefer a 2-button too.

going to vietnam at the end of the month and looking to cop 2x made to measure jobs. I've already got a well fitting (tailored) navy COS suit, so wondering what other colours/materials to go for - where should I be looking for inspiration? definitely need one suit for business use, but was thinking the other could be a slightly more interesting colour for weddings etc. dark green??

any recs for tailors in hoi an as well would be great

Turning up at a wedding dressed as The Riddler would be topper I reckon. Do it, swede.
