Double breasted resurgence

Double breasted suits have been in the shadows of single breasted for long while now but over the last few years they are being ordered more and more frequently, Even double breasted casual jackets are being ordered to wear with jeans etc which is really showing the resurgence of double breasted. This is a jacket from a suit in 10oz ultra fine Marino flannel from Smith Woollens, The cloth holds its shape really well but isn’t super heavy so Is fine wearing in summer conditions as the jackets are always mostly buttoned. The cut is really fitted and has a nice shape without bring to snug that the button pulls across the front which double breasted’s have a habit of doing, A 2 hole dark brown horn button works well against the grey and ties in well when worn with brown shoes.
