Just another day at the office in a double breasted suit.

His father is always in one.

Yeah they do look a bit low set, I always feel the top button should be just about level with the breast pocket. The horizontal gap between the buttons buttons should be about 4.5 inches. Not sure about the peaked lapels though, people might mistake you for Norman Wisdom.

It looks like there is not enough overlap of the fabric in front / not enough space between the columns of buttons.

It's intentional - they called it a 1.5-breasted jacket

Whatever they call it, it looks silly.

Custom tailored no doubt. Very 1980s?

Hey guys I could use some help, I picked up this vintage PRL in a thrift. Union made, fully canvassed and really cool. I thought it fit in the store but now I'm having second thoughts, are the large lapels and my small head clashing?

^^This is how I want it to look! Is it just in my head or is it my head? Thanks!

I know the shoulders are a touch wide but that's something only an SF'er would really notice and I figured it's worth the $14 for a fun DB every once and a while... Now I'm second guessing if the whole ensemble (Wide shoulders, extra wide lapels) is more dramatic than its individual parts.

I've never worn double breasted jackets and today I tried one on - to my surprise, it was quite flattering for my phat ass, even though it was maybe a size too big. While I wait for them to order one in my size and before I buy it, may I ask if a navy, worsted double-breasted odd jacket with non-brass buttons (thus not a blazer) is not a sartorial aberration, and may I wear it safely? lol8[1].gif

 

Sorry if it's a dumb question but I'm really noobish when it comes to double-breasted.

 

It is very classically styled, no fancy stuff and nice peak lapels. Half-canvassed, and the shoulders fit neatly, with a nice chest drape that I loved on the 42S, though I want to try the 40S (42 was roomy in the waist and seat). Was just €200, from my habitual go-to brand. What do you think, get it or not?
