FASHION TRENDS: The Double-Breasted Jacket makes a COMEBACK!
The Return of the Double Breasted Jacket
The double-breasted jacket has come back in a big way this year. It’s not the same version of the 1930s gangsta look or the 1980s resurgence with big lapels, extra thick shoulders pads and brass buttons. Labels are keeping it youthful and fun but making it more fitted, softer lines around the shoulders and using interesting fabrics. The fun part comes from paring unconventional shoes, no socks and bright colors.
Some of you might feel the urge to reach way back into your closet and pull out your “vintage” double breasted jacket. Before you risk it, take a look at these new Fall and even Spring releases. If you are still not sure, ask your wife, girlfriend, boyfriend, mother........um...... not your mother, she thinks you look great in anything.
Chris Evans aka Captain America has a light doubled breast jacket paried with a simple v neck and jeans. That's the first double breasted jacket to be on the cover of GQ in over a decade.
The red sneakers add fun and youth to this D&G Fall suit.
