The one-and-a-half-breasted jacket

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
“On top, I always wear a beautiful jacket with a perfect fit,” Cucinelli explained. “This is one-and-a-half-breasted, not double. You see how it drops? Even when I wear it open, it stays fitted to the body.” The soft, cocoa-coloured wool and cashmere jacket (£2,320) behaves almost like a pattern-cut cardigan.

Discuss.

Sorry to be contrarian, but this is just nonsense spin and, frankly, nothing new. Narrow wrap DB jackets have been around a long time.

I don't disagree.

I agree with the above. This is just marketing nonsense and really irks me. This is nothing novel or revolutionary about this. It is just a double breasted jacket with a narrow wrap.

Why the hell would you wear a double breasted suit or odd jacket open?

Hell, 90% of the time I don't unbutton mine even when I am sitting down, including my two narrow wrap examples. That said, in an age of Thom Browne insanity and people wearing people runway shows, I wouldn't be surprised if we see an upside down DB jacket meant to be worn backwards without pants.
