Thoughts on navy blue sport coats with gold buttons? I have one that’s in good shape but I feel like the gold buttons are something my dad could get away with but not me so I never wear it.

Gold buttons is actually one of the features that separates a blazer from a sports coat. Before anyone @s me, I just said one.


I know, I feel like a retired Navy admiral when I wear it. Good for boat rides though


I say wear it, but only if you can wear jeans - then it’s retro/vintage cool


Switching the buttons is easy if you feel uncomfortable


Would I be ok wearing this as is at the client site and on travel days or should I get the buttons changed out first?

Gotcha thanks. Still have to wear slacks at least this week but I’ll keep that in mind

When/where does someone wear a blazer vs sport coat?

Do it. But with jeans and a structured T-shirt, camel shoes, camel belt and gold watch

Any suggestions for an organizational/organization expert, coach, or someone that helps with getting firms organized? We need to be more efficient and have better systems in place.

Brief problem: We feel that we (partners) are unorganized, and as a result our staff is following the same disorganized structure and we’re not getting as much work/tasks completed as we should.

I need someone to help whip us into shape.
