For both coats and tailoring, we’re subscribing to the philosophy that two is better than one. Double-breasted designs come of age this season, skilfully fusing sharp cuts with doubled-up design.

Forget what you thought you knew about double-breasted styles adding unnecessary bulk to your frame. When executed right, double-breasted designs will add flair to your wardrobe but won’t add inches to your waistline.

Those unfamiliar with wearing menswear’s favourite doubled-up design should start with double-breasted outerwear (a peacoat is a classic) while those who want to tackle the trend head-on should opt for a double-breasted suit.
