    What do you all think of double breasted shawl collar dinner jackets?

    I am not a big fan of the double breasted jacket weither it be part of a tux or dinner jacket or with a plain suit. I do like the shawl style, but prefer the notch lapel.

    The jacket I posted, actually, is double breasted, though you can't see that in the photo.

    Also - to the dude below me... does formal wear make you want to grab your own butt?

    Just friends. We had the opportunity to use a historical manor for a private New Year's eve party and just decided to go all the way.

    Now to find other occasions to wear my ensemble [​IMG]

    From my January wedding...

    "¢ Viktor & Rolf 1 button peak lapel tuxedo (lots of pickstitching, you can see some of it in the picture... I liked it)

    "¢ Finamore Napoli (Andrea Napoli) wing collar micro-pleated bib shirt

    "¢ Beauties Ltd freestyle bow tie (I actually find these easier to do than a 4IH now, as I probably tried doing the knot 100 times [​IMG])

    "¢ Gucci Pour Homme ribbed waistcoat (earlier in the thread).

    "¢ A Testoni cap toe shoes, spit-shined to a mirror polish

    "¢ Thrifted cufflinks. Fake metal abounds, but they did the job.

    did you wear braces under the waist coat? I am in the final stage of finalizing my wedding attire too, and can't make up my mind wheather to just wear braces or too add a low waist coat.
