Has anyone seen a black jersey 'blazer' with no shoulder pads?

I'd like a black jersey fitted jacket/blazer that would look ok with skinnies etc but I can't find one that is comfy and has no shoulder pads. Does such a thing exist?

THabks both. The uniqlo one I'm not that keen on, a little long for me (I'm short!) I was after more if just past waist length? I will have a look at quiz too.

I think I saw something very simple from Nanso actually, but I don't know if you can get Nanso where you are?

This one from H and M?

Iv never heard of Nanso?! Definitely not near me.

The H&M one I did see actually, it looks like it has shoulder pads.... but doesn't say it does so will have to order it to see. I want it to be comfy as I want to travel in it on a short break soon and won't need to pack it or take a jumper grin

Nanso is a Finnish brand, good quality. They do a lot of loud Marimekko-type prints on sensible cotton nightdresses, which is the stuff that seems to find its way around. The clothes are harder to find. They have a webshop that is in Finnish and only ships to Finland. Most annoying, they have good basics and I can't get them because if there are shops here that stock Nanso they prefer the loud prints (because Sweden).

I got one from Sainsbury's, it does have shoulder pads but they're the type you could easily snip out as they're not under a lining. Although it was from the sale rail (I paid £6!) So they may not be in there anymore.

Whistles, but I'd wait for a 20% off code if you can.

Although they don't seem to have done their jersey blazer in black this year, which is very annoying of them. Navy, red or a weird grey.

Have you looked on/in River Island as they always have nice blazers, I have 2 from there, neither have shoulder pads.

No I hadn't looked at river island, thanks shall have a look.

I'm not sure about jersey but they usually have a great selection, also I find looking on Very is good as they usually if loads of certain things so you don't have to trail around lots of different web sites/shops.
