Double Breasted Style. - Page 95

post #1411 of 1434

I looked at some pictures and thought the turnback cuffs aren't actually that noticable, I guess it depends on how I have it down but I thought it  is mildly subtle.

 

I wasn't planning to get it extremely roped, just so the shoulder has a clean line, which I prefer, and I think I want it on most my suits not just my DB anyway so I don't think it's a huge deal. I'll talk to the tailor and see if I can try turned back cuffs and have it removed if I don't like it first. Either way I'll post some pictures when I do get them so you can be the judge of it.

 

As for loudness I think my age and general context in which I wear it does allow me a bit of flexibility. I don't really work in a conservative enviroment so it'll get more wear than most people I think.

did anyone post this yet? thought this was really nice proportions, shape of the lapels, etc., altho a DB with tassel loafers is breaking traditions too much even for me smile.gif

This looks really good.

 

Sorry for spamming with questions, but it's been bugging me since I haven't seen many versions of it, do you think hacking + ticket pockets on double breasted jackets is appropriate? I mean I know some people just don't like hacking and ticket pockets in general, but I don't know if there's some taboo against it for db jackets, I suppose it might with conflict the lines the buttons create or something.

Hacking, almost certainly not. Ticket pockets can be OK. Apart from Butler (above), John Hitchcock of A&S likes ticket pockets on his own DBs. Nevertheless, there are arguments to keep the front of the jacket less complicated. Some would even do without flaps on the pockets.

nice summer suit Butler

IMHO if buttoning only one button of a DB, it has to be the top button, as in the first picture

I always get a roll to lower button a n d a second jigger button, which leaves me with the option to do both as demonstrated here!

A great-looking suit, Butler, I gave my virtual thumbs-up right after first seeing it on T-J-o-S. You're one lucky chap.

Double breasted suits are amazing classic menswear. I've read somewhere on this thread that they are not "business appropriate". I don't see why. I work in a conservative industry and I wear my 2 DB suits and my DB sports coat just as I wear a SB suit. I like to notice that on whnay initial pictures, many of the suit cuts where shorter in lenght than they became later on. I also favor DB with a little shorter skirt, as it flatters the wearer, so it doesn't seems like we have a huge torso and minimal legs.

@betelgeuse: nice jacket! I have a similar one :-)

Nice DB butler love the fabric and buttons

Gents any thoughts on this button stance? I usually don't buy Longs but the length was what I wanted to wear with pants rather than jeans. Sits right even with my naval but seems a bit low.

A tad low, but not too bad.
