We've been searching long and hard for the perfect velvet blazer for the upcoming winter season, so when we finally found it in the Etro Velvet Jacket ($1,640), we were bummed. Of course our impeccable taste meant that the price tag would be way out of budget! But we were not discouraged! A little more Internet perusing led us to the J. Crew Velvet Schoolboy Blazer in Bristol Blue ($168). It may be a shade or two darker than the Etro, but we'll take it. The cut is flattering and the cost is much closer to our comfort zones!
