Double Breasted Style. - Page 7

^^^Thanks Tiealign, that one is actually OTR. Small no-name Italian maker but a very good cut for me.

the 6x3 is by Dege and is not mine. But I really like it too. I'm teeing up a 6x3 out of a Reid and Taylor cloth though.

Double vents are fine and more practical than ventless. That's my experience anyway. All my new ones are side vents.

That one. The pattern is not so sharp/prominent in person:



It is a Barbera suit so I suppose it is probably a Carlo Barbera fabric.

Great fabric. Is the "window pane" in a grey or silver thread? I have a 3-roll-2 SB sportcoat with a similar patterned fabric, although the overcheck/window pane is a medium grey over a very dark charcoal. From a distance, it gives the fabric a subtle, but interesting texture...I'd imagine yours might be the same way.

I don't see patch pockets on any of V's three random jackets. The OXXford looks like a besom to me.

The Oxxford has flap pockets that I tucked in that day.

I could tell, OXXford does single pipe pockets. One pipe on the bottom and none on the top.

Seems like I recall Manton posting a very nice dark charcoal brown DB a few months back....
These dark brown chalk stripes on some of these images are gorgeous, the way I'd go if i were to have one done up.

I actually tried on a double chested jacket in a nice charcoal Merino fabric at Joseph A. Bank today which was on sale for $39 but I still feel that is is not an appropriate style for a professional business environment.

No idea that Jos A. Bank did DB suits but I would say the suitability (haha) of wearing one for business depends on who you are, what you do and who your audience is.
