    I want a Double Breasted suit, really really bad.

    I have fabric for a jacket... I'm still deciding if make it Single Breasted or Double Breasted, I still don't know... if I decide DB, I want it to look like this:

    6x2 looks the best if you ask me.

    You can find many great 6x2 suits. I think it's the most normal way to go. And I also think if going for the first db suit it really need to be perfect on you. Let a good tailor do the job. I can take few pics when me wearing one aswell. Don't happend that often since I think it's little over the top for ''nicer occasions''
    Few examples:

    Thanks Mr. Hampton. This fabric would only cover for a jacket. Do you think it's a good idea or I should go with single breasted jacket?

    Don't understand, you mean only the blazer without the pants?

    Yeap. Cause I bought one blazer and they gave me as a gift the same amount of fabric but with other design.

    Of course you can. Just to feel how you like it and if it suits you. You need to start somewhere :)

    Hampton, you nailed it! I have in mind something like exactly like that, DB, 6x2, "normal" chest pocket (I don't if it is called like that) and patch pockets. [​IMG]
