Thoughts? I've been looking to get into some double breasted action.

Thoughts on a black one? What pants would you wear them with? What if they were linen (I live in hot weather a large part of the year).

I've a double breasted navy blazer that I rather like. It's a bit short, but I generally prefer my DBs that way. I usually wear it with gray slacks -- does not look as good with any other color, since DBs are usually more formal. If you must get a sport coat, I would recommend navy.

I have a black 6x2 DB blazer with solver and black buttons. Wear it with gray or beige strides and black shoes. Not as conventional as a navy DB blazer with gold buttons but nobody shouts 'Hello Sailor!' at me either!

Only when I'm on a boat.

I think it could look great with stone/ceramic colored linen trousers, a white shirt, light brown slip-ons and no tie. Would have to put on polished silver buttons, though.

I have a double breasted black blazer, 6x2 with brass buttons and a single button on the sleeves. I actually wore it last night to a club, but I wore it to work the week before since it was really cold. For casual wear, chinos or courdor corduroy in tan/british tan, and a light colored button collar shirt. For work wear, light grey slacks and a light colored shirt (any collar really), but I don't wear a tie with it.
