    It's certainly a lot more in style than the Chevy Blazer.

    I'm still waiting for the day I can wear my homemade 10-button blazer outside without shame.

  5. Alex says:

    I think it will, nothing stays out of fashion forever. All it takes is for one indie kid to wear it ironically one day and it just might catch on.

  6. Jen says:

    Hey man, 3-button jackets are still in style…look at Conan O'Brien. They only really work on tall guys, though.

  7. danadamkof says:

    It went out of style? No way!

  8. Alex U says:

    First 3 buttons and then it'll be double breasted!

    Buddha said something about how stuff was cyclical so why not? elindvall at gmail dot com

  10. Jaberjones says:

    If the 60's can come back then a three button blazer certainly can

  11. Gianna says:

    I think it will.. if bell bottoms and peace signs on everything (ick) have anything is possible.

  12. 2button4lyfe says:

    Probably not, but all you need is a pair of scissors to make it fashionable again

  13. Marty says:

    I hope it does, I would like that very much

  14. Nathan says:

    The three button blazer will never truly be "hip". But the hearts of men are easily corrupted. And the three button has a will of its own. It betrayed Ahmadinejad, to his ridicule. And some things that should not have been forgotten were lost. History became legend. Legend became myth. And for two and a half thousand years, the three button blazer passed out of all knowledge. Until, when chance came, three button ensnared another bearer.
    Rumor grew of a shadow in the north, whispers of a nameless fear, in Wasilla. The three button blazer came to the creature Todd, who carried it deep into the shadow of the Chugach mountains.

  15. CidE says:

    Everything comes back in style eventually. You see ugly clothes on celebrity's all the time you thought would never see the light of day again.

  16. Mike says:

    Three buttons, like jeans, never go completely out of style. Besides, anything is in style if you know how to wear it.

    If your standards aren't too high, then yes, in due time.

  18. NLTOAST says:

    The three button blazer WAS hip as of 12 a.m. Milan time, an event designed to correspond with the official announcement via an artist's rendering of a flying pig, that the 13-year wait for Duke Nukem Forever is now over. I am not up to speed at the time of writing this post and cannot verify it's continued social cachet.

  19. Tyler says:

    This style looks great now, beats ripped and char stained work clothes.

  20. Bboyexom says:

    Hip in 88 years? Nay sir I tell thee, this is THE look for all generations who tote such a magnificent vest. Grandpa's age got him down? Snag old boy a fresh new 3BB. Young Tommy being made fun of because his rags aren't the "trendiest"? Sounds like 3BB time. Yea, I did just acronym that for you. If you want to thank me Parc 81 Sponsors, you know what to do.

  21. JohnA says:

    The 3 button blazer isn't hip anymore? Shit.

  22. ShesAnAngel says:

    I think anything can look hip and 'in style' if you wear it right and you're sexxy enough! However, I think our times are getting looser and less tight so it's difficult to bring something back into style that is conservative on it's own….

  23. JH says:

    History repeats itself, though fortunately, not in a sequential order. So we're likely to see the three-button blazer come back before the toga does.

  24. Gregory says:

    Everything repeats itself so I'm sure we'll be seeing it again. For now, 1-2 buttons only please.

  25. P-Dawgz says:

    Someone cool will rock the three buttons and they'll come back, you just wait and see.

  26. Atreau says:

    Fashion always comes in waves and it always returns!

  27. Steve says:

    When will it come back? It never left baby!


  28. cLin says:

    It'll come back in style when I start wearing it :smug:

  29. Deb K says:

    I believe that 3 button look will come back in style.As new styles seems to show up out of no where it seems! One movie star wears it~gets on the cover of a magazine and BAM! all the stores have it in stock and everyone is grabbing it to wear.

    Thanks for the chance to win :-)


  30. ethan says:

    I could always use a BLAZER!

  31. Rob says:

    Gotta love the Parc on Valencia.

  32. Erica C. says:

    It'll be hip again as soon as some celebrity starts wearing it everywhere.

  33. Diane52 says:

    Of course, what's out one day is in ….five years later and who cares what other people think fashion is????

  34. ggallagh says:

    Everything gets hip again! If ankle warmers can come back into fashion, so can the three button blazer.

  35. Sporadic says:

    hook it up so i can goon it up in style

    sporadiclegend (at) yahoo (dot) com

  36. Reverend Fresh says:

    It'll be hip again once there's an integrated iPhone in the jacket

    mrcrumbbley (at) gmail dot com

  37. Fuzzy says:

    For sure. There's a level formality associated with them that will once again be hip.

  38. Chisum's Crew says:

    Of course it will – everything comes back around in style. trinitygsd at yahoo dot com

  39. Mike says:

    Fashions usually have a way of coming back in one form or another, even if they're not entirely mainstream. It's only a matter of time.


  40. hockeymike says:

    No, it won't. The three button blazer, like disco, is a relic of a time best left forgotten.

    parc81contest (at) surkein (.dot.) com

  41. Jesse says:

    It will come back simply because everything is circular. Who would have predicted that 80's style leggins would have been in such vogue?

    Granted that is female vs male style but that fundamental truth still remains.

  42. Shane Train says:

    Of course it will be back in style. Everything always comes back into style.

  43. Christopher says:

    It depends on the situation…

  44. susan says:

    It will be hip again! I am sure of it just give it a few years. suelee1998 @

  45. gnwg says:

    I think it will come back in style. Shows what I know I didn't realize it was completely out of date.

  46. BrineShrimp says:

    since when is the 3 button blazer is not hip? it cannot go out of style…

    brineshrimp (at) gmail (dot) com

  47. Jeff says:

    It's hip now. DUH.

  48. cindi says:

    yeah it will

  49. Bolverkr says:

    It will make a comeback. If for no other reason, it will become retro-cool at some point.


  50. ~*~lilshuga2001~*~ says:

    I think it looks good on SOME guys! Like the Model here!!! WHISTLE!!!
    It will come back!!!

  51. Shellie says:

    I think so . I predict the 3 button blazer will be popular again in 2019.

  52. Whalley says:

    They'll come back, but mandarin collar blazers will have their moment first.

  53. carolpie says:

    Two button, or three button, no difference to me, I don't usually button the blazer anyway. And with jeans – cool look.

  54. Aaron Poehler says:

    Of course, everything comes back around.

  55. Michael says:

    EVERYTHING comes back eventually. One day everyone will be going for the nostalgia look of the 2000s.

    mikejviola at gmail dot com

  56. Micah says:

    It'll be hip in about fifteen years–ironically, of course.

  57. Micah says:

    The three button jacket will never be hip again.

  58. plannetofmars says:

    You really gotta have the right attitude and consistent style to pull it off ;)

  59. Kilo says:

    Ugh, let's hope they don't.

    kilovictordongs at gmail dot com

  60. carolpie says:

    Maybe in like 30 years. We have gone through redoing styles from the 70s and it took awhile.

    spencer1953 at gmail dot com-carol

  61. Ria says:

    I don't think it ever did! (and by that I mean it will, bigger). I just think that there are different situations and locales for it to be appropriate for.

    dariachu at gmail dot com

  62. edmontonjb says:

    I think the 3 button blazer will be popular again because absolutely everything comes back in fashion eventually. I always thought 80's fashion was so bad and there was no way it could ever make a comeback. Boy, was I wrong!!


  63. Trisha D. says:

    i think it will come back, just like stirrups came back!! maybe it wont be a good idea, but hey sometimes all you need is confidence!!

  64. Justin says:

    I dig the idea of a 3 button blazer making a return. Thanks for the opportunity – hernandez.justin@gmail

  65. Captaincrunch00 says:

    If I looked like the model, it would still be in style.

    I just cant do the "I'm secretly hurting on the inside" look as well as he does.

    I usually end up looking constipated.

    captaincrunch00 at gmail

  66. purango says:

    I think it will probably come back into style. I think it will come back into vogue within a couple of years. All the celebrities will be sporting it like it is the latest fashion find.

  67. loni says:

    It will probably be popular in 20 years…seems like all fashion rotates every 20 years!

    trippyjanet at hotmail dot com

  68. JtDL says:

    Three-button blazers will swing back into style – or at least some sort of faux-chic – within the next year. Change is in!

  69. Jeff says:

    Come back? It's in style now!

    sonicglyph at gmail dut com

  70. Tracey says:

    Everything old is new again applies to fashion most often.So, yes, 3 button blazers will be back again.

  71. Jinxy and Me says:

    Yes, it will be. Everything comes back in style again. It freaks me out to see clothes I wore in high school back on the runway!

    nesta 67 {at} live dot com

  72. Benita says:

    Yes, it will be popular again. Nowadays people wear vintage fashion. When enough people follow suit, it will come back. Aren't platform shoes in vogue, again?


  73. mandala says:

    yes because fashion styles often come and go in repeating cycles. . . also it depends on the person if he could pull it off

    mandalarctic at gmail doy com

  74. SalanderServant says:

    Everything has a second shelf life these days so yes, it will.

  75. Louis says:

    I would say it will depend on the fabric. If it's something hip and modern then the 3 button blazer will totally come back

    schnitzomage at gmail dot com

  76. Hotsnotty2 says:

    I think that it can definitely be hip right now, you just have to style it in the right way. Heck, you can even make acid wash jeans hip if you know what you're doing! :) Thanks for the chance!

  77. Frank Cook says:

    everything eventually comes back in style

  78. ky2here says:

    Hey – thanks for having something for us guys. I'm ready to wear the blazer. How many people stop you on the street, count your buttons and make rude remarks? It looks great and I'll go for it.

    ky2here at msn dot com

  79. LindsayC says:

    I would like to say that it will never be again but unfortunately I've seen the 1980's shoulder pads come back and I'm pretty sure that's the first sign of the apocalypse.

  80. Aisling says:

    For many of us style is in the eye of the beholder or the wearer. There are certainly people wearing 3 button blazers today, feeling good in them and looking sharp.

  81. CathyB says:

    All the fashion trends continue to come back around and around, so we can look for this 3 button blazer forever! If my son won't wear this, I certainly will!

    dancejamboree at gmail dot com

  82. Katy says:

    I totally think the 3-button blazer will be cool again…in about 10 years. We'll have to want the classic back again soon!

    Thanks for the amazing giveaway! I would love to be able to dress my husband like this!!! :)

  83. shiloh says:

    Just a matter of time, and everything old is new again.

  84. melinda says:

    Yes,of course the 3 button blazer will be in. What goes out of style,comes right back in. (much later)

  85. mkjames12000 says:

    The 3 button blazer will be back, as it seems all styles come and go. I still like the look!

  86. Joy says:

    I don' t think the 3 button blazer will return.

  87. Sarah says:

    If there is still a three button blazer in my granfather's closet, and I bet there is, it will be all the rage eventually.

  88. Busy Working Mama says:

    All styles come back eventually. The 3 button blazer will be back!

  89. Mnemosyne says:

    Everything always comes back in style, and the three-button jacket is no exception. :)

  90. djtaylor26 says:

    I love a good 3-button blazer. Everything comes full circle…these blazers are no different.

  91. lmuk77 says:

    I think everything comes back in style eventually and I"m sure the 3 button blazer is no different

  92. Jenn S. says:

    I have one! It looks cute with jeans. jas8929(at)gmail(dot)com

  93. Heather says:

    The 3-button blazer will work for future long-torso'd folks, however, bottom button unbuttoned.

  94. Melissa B. says:

    I guess it depends on where you are. They are probably hip somewhere at this very moment.

  95. arla says:

    Yes it will but when did it ever go out Of style?

  96. terri142 says:

    I think eventually the 3 button jacket will be back in style, every other style has eventually come back.

    tderosa142 at gmail dot com

  97. Kimberly says:

    I think the 3 button jacket can be hip right now if the guy has his own style and pairs it with the right seperates.
    kirbycolby at gmail dot com

  98. Rachel G says:

    I definitely think the three button jacket will be in style again! Styles is a vicious cycle with styles that go in, out, and then in again.

  99. John S. says:

    Whatever people feel comfortable in will eventually be in style. So, the 3 button jacket will return. Love the blazer that was featured. Thanks for the chance.

  100. ankurlal says:

    I think it will. Things have a way of rearing their ugly heads – Kanye West style – right when you just don't expect them. I'm sure the look is popular somewhere in the world, and it'll eventually get followers elsewhere, maybe the next 10-15 years. Fashion designers do have to make money, and changing styles mean exactly that.

  101. clynsg says:

    I don't know about hip, but it is almost a classic!

    cgclynsg0 at gmail dot com

  102. wildcat32 says:

    I think it will be in style again in about 20 years.
    monster6236 at gmail dot com

  103. sweetsue says:

    Yes, everything comes back-neon and tie dye did!

  104. nick says:


  105. tawnda says:

    really… who buttons blazers anymore?? ;-)

  106. julis55 says:

    yes – i think it will it looks hot on the model

  107. joannaonthelake says:

    I absolutely think the 3 button blazer jacket will be hip, it all revolves around the person wearing it! The beauty about fashion is we all have the ability to create our own unique sense of style. For some it is hip and trendy, for others it is urban street chic, and then there are those that love the grunge look…..???? Whatever your passion for fashion is, it defines who you are, and gives us a sense of what makes you unique from everyone else. So if your idea of style is wearing a 3 button jacket, then I applaud you for being yourself, and not being afraid to express yourself. I personally love it when a man steps out of the typical comfort box and dares to be different when he puts together an outfit. All it takes is one unusual element to an outfit and wowza, you can capture the attention of those around you, in a very good way! It is just knowing what that extra special unique element needs to be to make it work!

    I would love to surprise my fashion saavy husband with this ensemble, it would definitely rock his world……he'd be thrilled!

    Thanks so much for the chance to enter. You rock!


  108. shelley says:

    I definitely think it will be hip again. I bet in the next couple of years it will come back around. There is so much you can do and wear with it!

  109. B says:

    I can see it featured in a hipster-doofus focused line. Irony is the only way it will be hip again within the next 50 years.
    belzebud at gmail dot com

  110. sarah says:

    to be honest I don't know. i am not some fashion knowledgeable person which is why I need to win this so that my husband can be styling – he needs help and I am ill equipped to give it to him.

  111. toughturtles says:

    yes i could pull it off bring it on lets start the trend

  112. 409cope says:

    I think it will come back in style simply because everything comes back in style eventually.cardshark42(at)hotmail(dot)com

  113. sweepmom says:

    Clothing always has a way of bringing itself back, even the stuff that shouldn't so yes, the 3 button blazer will probably make a return.

  114. ellie says:

    Sure…just about everything eventually comes back in style.
    I like the three button look.

  115. Amber says:

    I think it will be hip soon – maybe 5-10 years!
    Thank you for the giveaway :)


    yes it will someday- especially if the buttons are changed and a teen or college aged girl adds it as a jacket over a tank or sweater

  117. lainie2285 says:

    yes,of course,whenever I throw away an item of clothing,it is bound to come back.

  118. Courtney says:

    yah i think it will it looks hot on the model!

    vanitize1 at yahoo dot com

  119. Premise Guy says:

    I have a 3 button jacket. It's totally still in style!

  120. Tracy says:
