There are 3 main reasons why you would want to buy a Balmain blazer alternative which include price, fit, and upkeep. 

  1. The main reason for a Balmain blazer alternative is the price, this blazer starts at $2,695 and goes up from there. For most people including myself this is a steep price tag for a blazer. 
  2. The second reason why one would want a dupe Balmain blazer is because of the fit, as someone who’s tried this blazer on, it’s extremely slim and small fitting. If you do decide to purchase one, definitely try it on and size up. 
  3. The final reason is the upkeep to maintain an expensive blazer in top condition. For example think of the additional cost for the following things, dry cleaning, proper storage, travel bags, etc. 

Rag and Bone Preston Crepe Blazer

The Rag and Bone Preston Crepe Blazer is a great alternative to the Balmain blazer, it features the same rich gold buttons, a clenched waist, and it’s double-breasted. What I love about the Rag and Bone blazer is how it is made with Elastane so it can stretch a bit but then always goes back to its original shape. Rag and Bone is known for their high quality clothing and is made to last. This blazer is currently on sale from $600 to $200, and if you love it I recommend jumping on this deal as it won’t last!
