Here at Fielding & Nicholson, we love a sleek cut double-breasted suit and we want to give you a few reasons why it should be something to think about for your next bespoke jacket.
A double-breasted jacket gives off formality and pride. It makes the onlooker feel like the wearer knows about style and luxury. Its style really gives you the feeling of dressing up, a nice sentiment in a dress-down COVID world.
When you think of a classic double-breasted suit your mind might go straight for an oversized 80’s businessman style, but there is so much more than that.
The modernisation of the DB suit has been hugely expansive, from more casual styles cut in corduroy to the same shape as a traditional DB jacket but with no buttons and instead a utility-style metal fastening.
This traditional tailoring style has been explored by fashion designers and it is so exciting.
