    I have the honor of serving as the DD for both Chapter and Council this year however I don't have the blazers I need and, for some reason, all the ones I've borrowed seem to be to large.

    So I'm in the market for a red blazer, can anyone recommend a good place to look?

    New or gently used?

    Be a trendsetter; wear a black suit with a red or purple tie/waistcoat.

    Ebay usually turns out to be surprisingly well stocked for things like this.

    Take a look at Mayo Discount Suits. They carry different versions for $80 and $150.

    I don't know if this is tongue-in-cheek, but, at least in my state, Grand Officers don't get to be trend setters. There is a set outfit you wear. Now, if you become head of the Grand Chapter or Grand Council, then you can probably change it around.

    It was somewhat tongue-in-cheek... in my YR Bodies I'm known for my disdain of the outdated dress requirements.

    The year I served as DD for Chapter, the MEHP set the uniform down to the tie designed by his wife. I had no choice in the matter. I bought my own apron and jacket, the MEHP provided the tie, pocket square, and jewelry.

    I will shortly be an officer in the Chapter and Council. The blazers are optional where I attend. You can elect to wear a sport coat or suit.

    Congratulations.
    For us, officers at the local level don't have a set dress code. It's only grand officers that wear the red/purple blazers.
