Default Fall Fashions (and good deals on fashions!)

Back here in New England, we've arrived at the nicest time of year: fall! Time for cider, football games, sweatshirts, apple picking, foliage...and time to put away those shorts.

in this spirit, I just picked up a few new blazers for the fall. this is something I started incorporating in my wardrobe just last year, with great success! While this is pretty standard in NYC, LA, or SF, in many other cities/towns wearing a blazer really helps you look nicer than the average dude. and it doesn't have to be expensive.

for instance, here are the 3 I picked up today (just the blazers)



all of these were from Penguin. (I would link directly to them, but the site is acting kind of wonky). grand total for all 3? $105. pretty sweet.

anyways, thoughts on these? is there anything else people have picked up recently? Any great deals?

Those are all sharp. I like the one on the left the best. I'd buy them for $105. So where'd you get that deal, so I can buy them as well?

I went on this website http://www.originalpenguin.com/ but I'm not finding anything that is as good a deal as what you found.

go the sale area (or just the regular online sales area?) and click on "Jackets". you should see them. though, the website is acting really wonky, as I mentioned.

also, coupon code OPGFF will give you 30% off. (I found this on fatwallet)

I do not like the colour and contrast of one, it's too shiny. Penguin usually does a good job, if this is from their '07 fall collection, I'm disappointed.

How do you guys go about sizing when ordering from places like these? Id be to afraid it would fit horribly. Then again, at 35 bucks I guess you cant go to far wrong.

I bought 2 of the 3 blazers. $35 is filthy. I hope medium was the correct size!

OP thanks for the heads up on this.

For those about to start clicking and shopping on the penguin site:
I just got off the phone with their customer service and they won't be able to process any orders online or over the phone for what sounds like 24-72 hours. They're having some undefined problems with their computer ordering system.

Aye, the site seems to be down right now. I'll be keeping a close eye on the development of this thread though :P

Yeah, this is annoying - customer service on the phone was no help, which really makes me not keen on ordering with them.
