Rated 1 out of 5 by DMandS BLAZER
Over the past, say, 20 years I have owned 2 ‘traditional’ M&S men's navy blue wool Blazers. Both were 42 Long and both fitted me very well, indeed I still wear the second. I was therefore VERY disappointed to find that the current blazer, also 42 Long is – probably – 2 sizes too small. Also, the almost ‘honeycombed’ material is NOT the traditional material of classic men’s navy blue Blazers and I regret this was not very obvious when I viewed it on line. For that reason, alone, I will not be seeking the size that would fit me but, in any event, when I checked, there were apparently none in stock. I shall therefore be returning the ‘offending’ Blazer and seeking a full refund. This will be particularly disappointing as I shall thereby ‘lose’ the c £30.00 promotional discount I was given (expiry date 21/11/16). At 76, I realise I sound as if I’m turning into a grumpy old man, but it is now obvious to me that the word ‘Blazer’ has been hijacked to include loads of jackets one would never have considered to be Blazers a few years ago. I am very disappointed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Trogat M&S Classic Blazer?
Well not quite. On unwrapping the package the first thing i noticed was the colour - not in my view a true navy blue - far too bright. Then the fabric weave - again not a classic. The weave was far too course going more towards a cross stitch fabric. Brass?buttons, yes, but just a very cheap style with no classic embossing or pattern.
So another very disappointing item from the M&S range and I see why their clothing sales are falling away. Blazer returned with full refund but I did waste time, fuel and parking on a wasted trip for which there is no compensation.
Come on M&S get back to good classic clothing products and produce what you used to do.

This is only available online so colour is taken on trust. Despite being described as Royal blue, I assumed this was artistic licence.it wasn't. When I saw the item I ordered it was far far too bright.
I can't understand why anyone selling such a traditional item should decide on this variation from the norm.
It took two round trips of 35+ miles to find this out. I am now back to square 1 - without a blazer.
