THE DOUBLEBREASTED JACKET

Men's Health (South Africa) - - STYLE + GROOMING -

Back in the day, sure, th­ese suits were boxy – but to­day’s mod­ern ver­sions are nicely tai­lored, with slim­mer lapels. Fit is most im­por­tant, be­cause this jacket does not look good open; keep it tidy with just one bot­tom but­ton un­done. And avoid the tem­pa­tion to go all out on chunky cuff­links, a fat silky tie and over­sized shirt. In­stead, opt for a but­ton-down cham­bray shirt. It looks like light­weight denim, and will in­stantly bring the blazer to life.
