[Pictured: Lands' End Canvas chino blazer available for $69.50.]
Working button holes on your sportcoat or blazer ups your style quotient quicker than having your picture on The Sartorialist. For whatever reason this detail is extremely hard to find off the rack and usual takes a trip to the tailor and some extra greenbacks to make happen. This is a crying shame as far as I am concerned so whenever I see a jacket that comes complete with working button holes I pretty much geek the hell out.
Lands' End Canvas apparently got the memo on this and their new chino blazer for spring comes complete with more sartorial flair than the price lends itself to (if you have any questions about quality read my hands on review of LEC). If you needed another reason to finally pick up that chino blazer and knock another staple off your wardrobe list you may have finally met your match. In my eyes there really is no reason whatsoever not to pounce on this. I remember interviewing this guy for an opening at work who showed up wearing a suit with working button holes. He almost got the job too, but he was a complete idiot.
