The double breasted suit jacket is a classic style which has stood the test of time despite the oversized, low buttoned versions of the 80s and 90s putting a sartorial spanner in the works for elegant men’s style.

While Louis Vuitton still gave a nod to the 1990s with a boxy blazer paired with relaxed fit trousers for this season, the best way to wear the double breasted suit now is fitted and with a slim trouser.

When it comes to colour and pattern, go as bold as you dare. A block colour DB suit will liven up your smart summer dressing, a grey checked suit will take you through the warmer months and well into autumn, and if the occasion arises, a double breasted jacket with a shawl collar in a silk or satin look sheen will give you the edge.
