It was looking great today!

For those interested, here's an old (1y) article about Neapolitan tie makers. It popped up in my social media feed recently. One of my personal favorites beside the usual suspects is mentioned; A. Quaranta Locatelli.

No way. I absolutely love a well cut DB suit or navy blazer. The only thing is there is less margin for error with respect to fit on a DB jacket. I don't think I'd wear a DB patterned odd jacket, though.

I think DBs look really good, as long as you don't go over the top pitti style with the matching and patterns.

I sport this one occasionally, but do admit that it has limited use compared to a SB navy SC.

I don't wear DB jackets much myself, but I can't agree with sprout at all. I think the style is very contemporary, and I mostly see it on younger people really. Hardly a relic.

I agree. At least here in Europe we can see them very often... I would say it is a trend among younger men right now.

Historical reenactment is a big thing these days.

Sure, and I've got friends who are very into that. DB's on the other hands have been all the rage with people who are more fashion oriented for the last couple of years.

Was watching Jeeves and Wooster, and was able to date the show because they had 3 piece db suits, haha.

 

I think one of the differences between db and sb is that with the latter, open quarters are more popular and it lends it self to a very casual flair, but the boxed up nature of the DB just naturally creates like a stronger more rigid frame. It's more military, obviously, and I think in a world of hyper modern aesthetics that can be a good connotation.

 

One day I will have a black db suit, and you will all laugh at me.

So we agree, then?

post #31934 of 37427

I don't think so.

No. We'll only laugh at you if it isn't a dinner suit (i.e. dinner jacket and trousers).
