Not many men have the appetite to wear suits, especially nowadays where the style sphere is stationed on street wear – where printed T-shirts, distressed Jeans, and cool kicks are the main attraction of this “fair/circus”. But literally in my case,  I’m not mentally fitted on completely embrace this kind of style yet, in particular, printed T-shirts for me are still an excessive concept – maybe it’s true that I did fossilize myself on dressing between classic and newfangled pieces.

That said, we are here to talk about one of many menswear staples that have kept going in & out of style only to recently see a new resurgence in popularity. When we think about Double-Breasted Suits, the first image that came to my mind is famous & stodgy photographs of 70’s – 80’s – 90’s banker-type / banker look-alike or that wide-shouldered caricature of Mafia Boss… well, that’s my thing… what’s yours? But through the years it has gradually lost its flair because single-breasted is back into the casual wardrobes of stylish men, the double-breasted suit has made a more widespread comeback as well.

Turning back on our styling tips – well, I am here suggesting you my two personal ways on “how to wear a double-breasted pinstripe suit”. Refreshing it in an accustomed way, but with a personal twist! Bien sûr!

1.CONTEMPORARY CLASSIC

Know this: having your own cut is undoubtedly essential on your suit. It can be a comfort, tailored, slim or in any kind of drop, it depends on what you are used to wear or how much you dare to dare. Every shape is appropriate, the striving part is to find that demanding detail to match with the overall look – adding the icing on the cake can be a tough feat. The choices are endless to define the perfect accessory, although shoes are always the best lifeline to catch up in this situation, like these amazing uncovered Oxford shoes from last  S/S Zara’s collection. However, it is better to approach the thing with caution while choosing the right piece for the suitable raiment.

     2. URBAN CLASSIC

It is noticeable that white pair of sneakers together with the plain T-shirt is considered the Elite of Casual apparel. They are well advised to have an effortless getup, very versatile & handy in any situation. There’s nothing I can say more about this matter, both pieces are a lifeline and they definitely give a refreshing look and enlighten the versatility of the suit as well.
