TIP :: Keep It Slim Sleeved.
The second most important fit of a blazer or jacket (the first is the shoulder) is the sleeve. A sleeve that fits slim on your arm looks sleek, purposeful, and lets you play with proportion in other places like length or oversized fits. A wide, roomy sleeve often feels dowdy and dated. I even care more about a slim sleeve than I do about a too long sleeve. I prefer my sleeves pushed up or cuffed anyway.

An old, dowdy feeling blazer can often be turned around by having a tailor slim the sleeve. It costs around $30-$40, much cheaper than buying a new blazer. It’s a great thing to keep in mind if you’re a thrifter, or just planning to KonMari your closet this spring.
