Business Insider caught up with Judah Estreicher, founder of JBD Clothiers, for the rundown on how to pull off the double-breasted look this spring and summer. “The key with the modern double-breasted look, Estreicher told us, is that it’s shorter and slimmer than the traditional cut.” So forget that picture in your mind of your grandfather’s double-breasted jacket and think 2014 fashion catwalks and red carpets!
“You should be able to wear it casually in Spring and Summer too, so think lighter colors…” It seems almost irreverent to put the words “double-breasted” and “casual” together, but that’s the way to wear it this season! The trending look is the summer casual white or light colored blazer worn with seasonal slacks.
“But casual or not,” said Estreicher, “the double-breasted pitfall will always be the cut and fit. Look out for the bulk of the extra fabric and the boxiness of the shoulders. For best look and fit, consult with a tailor. This is a fit that can be more complex than the regular 1 button suit and will benefit from some expert advice and touch ups to the waist area.”
Have fun this spring and summer playing the gentleman that combines this age-old, time-honored tradition with modern casual trends!
