I have never been one to follow the rule "if you haven't worn it in a year, then toss it." I bought this blazer in 2006, and although I haven't worn it in years, I'm very thankful I held onto it! It went out of style for awhile but since it still fit and I still loved it, I kept it at the back of my closet until it felt right to rock a plaid jacket again (this is four days in a row that my posts have included plaid!). See how I wore the jacket last year here, and tell me - would you wear a plaid blazer?
