    I'm just wondering does it take any more/less tailoring skill to create a bespoke double breasted suit vs. a single breasted suit? Of course this is assuming they are the same in all other aspects (material, size, details, linings, etc.). Which takes more time to make?

    I'd have to go with DB. I imagine that creating the symmetry across that much more fabric might be more challenging. Of course, I'm pretty much speaking out of my ass.

    DB is bulkier, SB being more fitting may need to be "more bespoke". Not that I really know.
