Double-breasted or single-breasted suit?

Having a suit tailor-made for you is one of the best decisions you can make when looking for not only a stylish item to add to your wardrobe, but it is also an investment in your future.

Suits have the option of being single-breasted or double-breasted.  While both options look stylish, the most common option is a single-breasted suit.  It has buttons down on one side and button holes on the other side that meet in the middle when you close it.

The double-breasted option has sets of buttons on both sides of the suit, with the left side folding over the right side, and is fastened by one or two buttons.

A single-breasted blazer or jacket is the staple found in most men’s wardrobes, but a double-breasted version can also look incredible.  When fitted to your body, the double-breasted option secretes sophistication and elegance, but will require you to spend extra time and effort to get the look just right.  This is also, of course, due to the fact that any outfit looks outstanding with added attention to detail and fine tailoring.

A bespoke double-breasted blazer will look elegant, as though you are wearing a second skin, and it will ensure you assets are accentuated, whilst your flaws are disguised.

This version of the blazer always has peak lapels, thereby completing the superior look.  The original design has six buttons, two that close.  This look is perfect for taller gentleman.  For shorter gentleman, a four or six button option, where only the bottom button closes, is a better choice.

When should you wear your statement piece?  It certainly isn’t for everyday use, unless you are always seen on the red carpet.  You should wear it for special occasions, such as a wedding or formal charity event.
