Something a bit more formal (but not too formal) in the form of the Gant Rugger Herringbone Blazer.
To be fair, this limited edition ivy league-inspired jacket is the kind of thing tasty would work as both formal and casual and with a timeless look, should serve you well for many years. Detailing includes a 100 per cent herringbone wool outer, two front patch pockets, a single chest pocket, vintage effect nut buttons, an inner pocket with corduroy lining and a sateen lining with contrast striped sleeve lining.
I was just checking if the Mad Men range has landed at Banana Republic earlier and you know what? It hasn't. But this tailored micro-stripe two-button blazer caught my eye.
It's not a million miles away from that '60s-inspired range, a fitted 100 per cent cotton jacket with full lining, notched lapel, two-button closure, three exterior pockets, two inside pockets, four-button cuffs and a single back vent.
That fit is described as 'overall slimmer', with a more fitted waist and sleeve, as well as less on the shoulder. Various sizes and two lengths (short and regular), all selling for £125.
There's touch of the early 1960s about this Our Legacy English Cloth Rolling Blazer.
It's certainly got that 'mod' style about it, with a snug fit and fairly slim lapels, with details including three tortoiseshell button fastening, centre vent, three patch pockets and a kissing button cuff.
It's made from 82 per cent cotton and 18 per cent linen. Price isn't cheap though - £300 is the asking price.
If you're on the look out for something a little more formal, this Gant Dog Tooth Blazer might fit the bill.
Ideal for that preppy/ivy look, the single-breasted blazer offers up two inner pockets, two outer patch pockets, three-button fastening, a handkerchief in the inside pocket and a length down to the hip.
