Remember my Splurge vs. Steal: Leather post from Aug 28th? In it, I promised to be financially sensible if both the splurge and steal versions were equally beautiful. I stand by that statement. By contrast, if the two versions are noticeably different due to sacrifice of quality, style, or fabrication; then I would choose splurge. A well cut, well made blazer will stand the test of time. It's definitely worthwhile to pay more for something unique yet versatile enough to dress up for work/events and dress down for play.
