The eight-on-four double-breasted suit

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Four-button single-breasted suits tend to conjure images of urban gaucherie, but I wonder whether the double-breasted version has been unjustly shunned. I recently had occasion to see The Picture of Dorian Gray (1945), wherein Hurd Hatfield wears an eight-on-four double-breasted suit that was at once bold and refined. I then saw a purple-label effort that was a faithful copy, but I don't know the collection to which it belongs.

Do any other high-end RTW makers offer such a suit? Can anyone provide any information about that purple-label suit?

I've had 6x3's done MTM by various makers but I think an 8x4 may be in the bespoke league. It is certainly "fashon forward" these days.
