Does anyone know who he is or what he does for a living? I like his style.

Its purple, and I see what you have pointed out and I like those qualities other than the collar being loose.

I hate when people say stuff like alot of people in this thread. The opinions are buns, word to Mrs. Baird.

This applies to vested suits more than it applies to double breasted (or DB for short) suits. Personally, I don’t know why people like DB suits so much. In complete contrast to vested suits being, for the most part, sorely underrated, DB suits, for the most part, are sorely overrated.

However, I do like vested suits with DB vests (but only if the jackets are low cut single breasted or SB for short and not DB). DB jackets with vests look abominably overdone. DB jackets with vests look much more abominably overdone (and, much more overdone in general) if the vests are also DB than when the vests are SB. DB vests should always be ¾” inch to 1 ½” on the low cut side.

Iammatt desperately needs to commission a few vested suits from Rubinacci. But iammatt’s vested suits will need pants that are cut for both no belt and no suspenders (where side tabs and the same tab in the rear are mandatory as there would be no belt loops and no suspender buttons).

Iammatt hates suspenders and belts are a fashion faux pas with a vest.

It is funny and strange how DB suits get tons of attention and love on the clothing forums because of their rarity (and their formality, perceived elegance, etcetera) yet vested suits (which are somewhat more rare-with just as much as or more formality than DB suits, about the same perceived elegance, etcetera) get relatively substantially less attention and love on the clothing forums than DB suits do. And, vested suits look good and especially phenomenal on far more people than DB suits do.

I wasn't going to say anything, but now that there's a thread about it...

The thing that I don't like about DB suits is that those top two buttons are pretty much like having nipples on the outside of your shirt. They're pretty much where nipples go. It would just feel very awkward, especially since men really oughtn't to have nipples at all in the first place; they're extraneous.

Brilliant. It makes sense too.

I think if you could pull off a db it is very diplomatic looking and such a suave look as opposed to your your run of the mill sb look most people do.

DBs are very chic, very distinguishing. Finally and most importantly, in my experience, women love DBs.

I love DB suits. I wear them quite frequently, although I must admit, they are hard for many people to wear-you just have to have the right build for them-and a great tailor!

I will say that db suits are like flannel and tweed ,something I really want to love and to appreciate without really reaching my pocket to validate that desire...
I can appreciate the elegance and simplicity of the db suits of the Japanese Gentleman but I can't really picture myself spending at the moment a few k on it...
I still prefer single-breasted even if I possess my fair share of them.

I plan to have a DB suit made sometime in the next couple of years. Assumptions like "young men can't wear DBs or 3 pieces" have contributed greatly to the current monotonous ubiquity of the single breasted 2 piece.
