Wearing a Double Breasted Man Suit

Double Breasted Man SuitA single breasted suit is great for daily wear but you will not find anything like the double breasted man suit. The heritage and glamour of the jacket is an essential style of all gentlemen. But, still you will find the suit disappearing from the stores. The main reason for this is because men don't know how they can wear a double breasted suit properly. This is absolutely a disgrace because they are very comfortable and gives you a wonderful look.

Determine Your Body Shape:
Follow a few fashion tips if you are planning of wearing a double-breasted suit that brings back a traditional style. Firstly, you need to assess your body structure. A double breasted suit will look good on a tall man. If you are wearing a double-breasted suit then you should ensure that the jacket should be modified at the waist. This way the wearer's shoulder will become more outstanding. If your waist is bigger than the width of your shoulder the overlapping lapels would assist to hide the waistline spread.

Select Peak Lapels:
You should make sure that your double breasted man suit has peak lapels. In the early 1990's notched lapels had become popular. However, designers came up with more unique cuts and style and peaked lapels came in which highlighted the shoulders.

Find Out 6-Button Jackets:
The number of buttons will be greater if the opening at the neck is small and the lapels are higher. A double breasted suit will be determined by 2 rows of straight down buttons. You will find that the required number is a 6-button jacket that is on two rows on the exterior and an added closure button in inside.

Double Breasted Man SuitSelect Versatile Colors and Materials:
The double breasted man suit is considered to be a conservative choice. However, the style is seamless and you will look best if you are wearing this in a wool material which can be worn throughout the year. Make sure the fabric you choose is suitable for the summer months also. You can go for a navy blue suit that comes with a pinstripe. A pinstripe suit is also more appropriate if you are going for double breasted suits. A pinstripe lightens your profile and will make you look cool and relaxed.

Wear The Right Trousers:
Plain front pants are more popular but a conventional double breasted garment set requires a pleated pant and bulky cuffs. The jacket is too daunting and will look too weighty if the cuff or the pleat is absent.

Pair up the Right Accessories and Shirts with a Double Breasted Suit:
Sport a wide spread collared shirt instead of a simple shirt collar. The jacket will hide the tie and if you are sporting a spread collar it will allow the tie to be a focal point. You can wear a French cuff man shirt at formal events that will portray your personality. With the right accessories and shirt you can add a touch of elegance to your closet.
