Want to buy a blazer

So I recently left the RN and despite only being in my 30s I want to buy a blazer to wear for ANZAC day and Remembrance day. Ive seen people wear all kinds of rig with their medals pinned to it and although its the thought that counts I would like to not look a total pot mess.
The thing is I'm totally clueless when it comes to clothes, what sort of blazer should I be looking to get?
I know this is a very bone topic but I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction.

Make sure you buy a good quality one with a proper breast pocket. Nothing looks worse than a regimental badge sewn to a cheapo blazer.

But don't disregard 2nd hand. Mine is lush, and was a fiver off E-Bay plus Fiver to Dry Clean. General rule is count the buttons on the sleeve, them more buttons, the better the jacket.

Never mind the Quality, feel the width, my boy....
