Double Breasted Style By Hugo Boss

18th October 2012 | Posted in Mens

Once reserved for the very best in high British society, the double breasted jacket has recently undergone a rapid change from 90's banker power dress favourite, to up and coming fashionsta's dream.

Despite its rich history, the double breasted jacket is still a stranger in most men's wardrobe.

Cue to make the introduction a little less awkward…

No doubt that you've probably already seen a double breasted edition at some point or another- they're most common in outerwear, from the likes of reefer and pea coats. However, don't make the mistake of thinking that this is where the double breasted styles work best; they are equally as good when used in tailoring. For example: Take this outfit.

The jacket, by Hugo Boss, is cropped at the bottom, giving a less boxy feel than other traditional square bottomed double breasted jackets. This means it works well as a suit jacket with the matching trousers, but also as a stand alone piece, being mixed and matched with chinos or cords. You can wear the bottom button open or closed (we've opted for open), and of course, there's always the option for a pocket square on the chest.

The shirt, also by Hugo Boss, gives a touch of something different to the outfit thanks to its collar tipping. The black detail runs down the cuff placket too, taking the formal touch away from the traditional plain white shirt, letting you link it with some sharp tailoring to give a perfect smart look whilst keeping an informal trendy edge.
