The original double-breasted jacket was born as the reefer jacket of the nautical and sporty world. Through the 1930s and 40s it came as a sharp business-formal look of the big-money men, like bankers attending important board meetings on Wall Street.
The old school double-breasted suit can be characterized by a boxier silhouette, looser drape, extra length and incredibly wide lapels. The modern double-breasted suit has slimmed and trimmed its way to earning a spot in your heart and your closet.
Whether you’re prepping for a big day on the grind or stepping out to a formal event, this suit is guaranteed to garner you compliments and nods of envy.
1) To office
The office is the perfect place to flaunt a double-breasted suit, standing out from the corporate crowd. For everyday work, simpler is better, opt a pinned striped one.
While contemporary guys should go for charcoal based suit paired up with tan monks.
2) In winters
For winters, opt for double breasted jacket with 4×2 button construction in textured woolen fabric. Style it right with a turtle neck cardigan of a fine wool blend for a luxury finish. This gives you a clean look without adding bulk of a scarf or sweater to the look. Try out this fresh trendy alternative to a shirt and tie combo.
3) To parties
Since the wedding season is round the corner, a double breasted jacket would be a great fashion forward decision! To elevate the suit to a new level, a windowpane pattern will give the suit a regal feel. Also, go a little out of your comfort level and experiment with colors like indigo, maroon or teal.
