Lately, I’ve really taken to wearing double-breasted suits. I feel as though I exude a true Italian sensibility and style when I wear this suit. Not only do I like this classic style, but it is also a flattering cut for men of a smaller stature. This type of jacket will elongate your torso and the wide lapels broaden your shoulders.
As for styling such a great suit, go for simplicity. In the summer, I always say go for that crisp white shirt. In the summer, I much prefer wearing lighter colored suits — such as navy, white and grey. I really like about a double breasted jack is that is can be worn with dark slim jeans or chinos to make this style a little less formal. I have to say that this distinct jacket style is sophisticated and can go from the office to happy hour.
Lastly, one always needs a comfortable and dapper pair of shoes. This time around I opted for a tan, leather loafer. I like wearing a loafer in the summer because they are easy to slip on and off, and it’s a good option for a double breasted suit. The loafers I am wearing a from Johnston & Murphy.
