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 Â¾” inch to 1 Â½” 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.
