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

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

  3. 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.

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

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

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

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

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

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

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

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

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

  16. 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 :-)


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

    gallagher.gregory at

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

    mrcrumbbley (at) gmail dot com

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

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

  21. 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.


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

    parc81contest (at) surkein (.dot.) com

  23. 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.

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

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

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 Shows what I know I didn't realize it was completely out of date.

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

    brineshrimp (at) gmail (dot) com

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


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

  30. I think so . I predict the 3 button blazer will be popular again in 2019.
    fatmeatloaf1 at gmail dot com

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

    pacwang (at)

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

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

    mikejviola at gmail dot com

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

    plannetofmars at

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

    spencer1953 at gmail dot com-carol

  36. 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

  37. 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!!


  38. 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!!

  39. I dig the idea of a 3 button blazer making a return. Thanks for the opportunity – [email protected]

  40. 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

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

    trippyjanet at hotmail dot com

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

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

  44. 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

  45. 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?


  46. 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

  47. 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

  48. 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

  49. 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.

  50. 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.

  51. 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

  52. 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!!! :)

    kmorris at wildcatdiscovery dot com

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

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

  55. 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.

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

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

    mnemosynescall at gmail

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

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

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

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

    tderosa142 at gmail dot com

  62. 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

  63. 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.

  64. 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.

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

  66. 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!

  67. 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!

  68. 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

  69. 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.

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

  71. 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.

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

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

  74. 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

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

  76. I went to the Valencia Parc 81 and found my boyfriend a bunch of awesome pieces! I love the looks in there, just wish the was a store closer to me lol
