The Power of the Double-Breasted Suit
Double-breasted suits are mostly linked to power, strength and confidence; this is the “Power suit”. In this modern era the double-breasted suit is back, and every man should have a least one in his closet.
Choose one with a dark color; grey, black, navy blue or brown. Of course, tailoring is key to mastering it.
The jacket needs to be slim through the body to avoid a wide looking frame.
When standing keep your suit buttoned up and when you sit down unbutton your jacket. Even though it’s fine to keep buttoned while sitting (only the double breasted jacket).
The double-breasted suit is best for men of average to above-average height. So if you are tall and slim, think no more.
Make a statement with your double-breasted suit! Wear it to a dressy event, a red carpet, work or even a wedding. You can wear it with a shirt and a tie (keep the combination relatively conservative) and even with a dressy white t-shirt if the dress code allows it.
