    Who says that you can't wear a double-breasted pinstripe jacket as a blazer? I paired it here with white gabardine trousers and pretended that it was 1930 all over again!

    No clue, but it looks milanese.

    I would have guessed A. Caraceni, but who knows?

    Some of the Kingsman double breasted are currently reduced on Mr Porter

    I wouldn’t wear a DB suit outside of loungewear it’s just not practical.

    Just an advisory for anyone else considering it too, 50% off.

    For me, I'm a big fan of the DB look but I've still never tried one on yet. I'm around half way through the intended diet having lost 25lbs now and will see how one looks when my physique settles

    Not sure what you mean here. Other than being a bit more dandified these days due to rarity, it's just a matching jacket and trousers like a SB suit. Takes maybe a couple seconds more to put on.

    I prefer db - all my bespoke suits are db.

    The more I post on this thread the more I'm drawn to the 6x2 rolled to 1 button configuration. In my mind this looks best as a lounge suit.

    The single breasted suit is better suited to the office environment.

    The length of the roll is flattering but having the button point at the hip is unflattering. Paradox.
