HOW TO STYLE A DOUBLE-BREASTED BLAZER

Checkout how I styled my double-breasted blazer…

One of the least favorite jacket styles today, the double-breasted blazer is rarely ever worn and most men have no clue how to pull off a stylish look wearing it. Double-breasted suit jackets were popular from the mid-1930s until the late 1950s, and again from the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s. Today I effortlessly styled my double-breasted blazer to make this particular outfit come to life. I’m wearing navy chino pants that match up great with the plaid double-breast and a classic white fitted dress shirt with no tie.

The red vest underneath added a hint of color that coordinated with my British flag socks, and all of the accessories from the pocket square to the pink lapel pin gave the jacket lots of personality.

The double-breasted design is unique and frames your body differently from your traditional single-breast styles that are popular today. Guys that are shorter in height shy away from them because it overwhelms their shorter torso. They come in a 4 or 6 button configuration and depending on the body frame and height one may work better than the other. 

I rarely wear dress shirts without a tie, but I felt that this gave a stylish touch to the double-brested look. The design of the jacket is made with wide lapels so I added a lapel pin on both sides to fill up some of the space with detail so the jacket wouldn’t be so boring.

This is my first time wearing my British flag socks with a full dapper outfit. They just became my favorite pair at the moment and you might see more of them in upcoming post. The red and royal blue works so well together and makes the look pop with my brown double monk dress shoes.
