A few months ago, I bought a dress* from Banana Republic and didn’t return it. And now, this Nautical Basketweave blazer is on my very short list. I love a good navy blazer and this one reminds me of the Balmain on Emmanuelle Alt that I posted about 4 years ago.
I tried it on at the store today (a rare B&M visit). Since I have short arms, I go for petite sizing when I can and this comes in regular, petite, and tall sizes. My store only had regular sizes but it was enough to help me get a sense of sizing. It is cut well. if you want a close fit, size down. I could’ve gone for a regular size for my arms, so that means the sleeves are on the shorter size. The material is on the thicker side, so it’s not for a hot summer, but would hold up in other seasons or in air conditioning.

P.S. Banana Republic, your search function needs work!

*I’m not linking the scalloped dress since it’s sold out, but here is the scalloped striped sweater version. It runs TTS.
