Fashion tip :  The double-breasted jacket

fashion

The double-breasted jacket: Jackets tend to give power to a dull look, but this doesn’t mean any jacket. The double-breasted trend is in and here’s how to wear it.

For the men that know how to stand out stylish, you clearly know how much power a jacket has to turn around even the simplest of looks. Even with all the jacket choices that we have, there are always those that stand out – the one that separates the men from the boys. And that is exactly what the double-breasted jacket does for you.
This English fashion-oriented piece was in the past worn for grand events like the ascots, or weddings. But not anymore. This jacket is the new wardrobe staple. It’s fit for the office, street fashion, business meeting and even the weekend polo fashion.
When choosing to wear this piece, you have a variety of options to choose from. To begin with, you can wear the jacket on a matching pair of pants. After this, try adding a pair of shoes in a different colour, like tan or even gold.
You can also wear your double breast jacket with a pair of brown chinos, and this is the commonest way of wearing it. You can then add a tie to complete the look.
My personal favourite, though is wearing this jacket with a pair of white pants.
The other important part about wearing this jacket is the shoes. This jacket is a classic, so keep the other accessories that way. Brogues, loafer slippers, and formal shoes are all an option. You can also decide to keep your pants hems short, at the ankles.
Any upscale men’s shopping store like Men’s knight wear, Woolsworth, are bound to have samples of these jackets.
