This post on The Sartorialist is merely confirmation that the double breasted jacket is back in the youth and trend wardrobe. (We will ignore the fact that the jacket in Sart’s second image is woeful). I recently made a purchase of a grey four button double breasted suit with a glen check, my long-term appreciation of the look vindicated by the fripperies of fashion. (Obviously, in the dustier (if dapperer) classic fashion community, the DB is a mainstay.) A friend recently insisted the DB is not for skinnier men (or indeed anyone under the age of 80 who is not appearing in a period drama): trufax? Tell me in the comments.
But bear in mind the money back guarantee on the suit is long gone.
