I’ve always had a issue with Double Breasted suits.
No matter how many buttons they have, how slim the jackets are cut, they never look good on me.
The shoulders look weird, the buttons always tug and pull, the waist feels odd and the jacket just ends awkwardly at the hips. ARGH!
And I thought I’m the poor unfortunate soul with the barrel figure who looks like, well, a barrel in any DB suits.
Seems like even models like Jamie Dornan here in the ZARA Spring/Summer 2011 lookbook are not spared from the sartorial challenge that DB suits are.
So people, no matter what your fashion folks tell you, DB suits are not for us Plebeians.
We can only seek solace in our Single Breast suits and wander the fun ground between 1 to 3 buttons in a row on our jackets.
