Double Breasted Suits

How to wear a Blazer!

A suit may not be always the ideal look for you so let me educated you on an alternative. A blazer is a type of jacket that is considered suitable for formal occasions. Although blazers are similar to suit jackets, they do not feature matching pants. Blazers also often feature less structured shoulders than suit jackets.

We only live once so why not set the tone every time you step out with a outfit that makes them stare. Stepping out no matter the day is something that everyone looks forward to and are excited for. Any event requires a great deal of attention, style, and to be quite frank you need to be fresh! So it’s only right when hitting the scene as a Sharp Crisp Clean individual I drop the keys to success for all those that live such a lifestyle.

The blazer symbolizes grown man status, trust, uniqueness, the ability to understand fashion, class and a positive aura. The blazer for a Sharp Crisp Clean individual is like Superman with his cape, Black Panther and his vibranium, Rick Ross with his beard. It simply gives you super powers!!! The blazer should utter the words “I have arrived” once you stepped in the room without even saying a word. Check out some SCC tips on how to rock the Blazer.

There are multiple different  styles of blazers, but two most frequent blazers are the double-breasted the single button and the two-buttons.

 Fit

A great blazer must fit well and be tailored to your body. Taking it to a local tailor shop or if the store you purchased provides this service is recommended. 

Things to look out for when looking for a fit:

  • If the blazer pulls and forms an “X” when buttoned.

  • If the shoulders and sleeves of the blazer will be tight and have pulls. Also if the sleeves are too long or short 

  • If the shoulders either extend past your natural shoulder or have a wrinkled and disheveled appearance.

To Double Breast or Not

If you are of the mindset of a SharpCrispClean individual then one must believe that 'fashion is a language, some know it, some learn it, some never will.

The double breasted suit requires unique effort, attentiveness, & time to wear successfully. Men with confidence can easily pull off the look as long as they are mindful to always!! always!!! leave the suit buttoned. This type of suit is more formal than the single breasted, which causes it to be less versatile. 

The Double Breasted is a must have

To describe a double breasted suit one must conceptualize a jacket with wide, overlapping front flaps and two parallel columns of buttons or snaps. Normally, double breasted coats consist of a column of buttons that's decorative, while the other functional.

Nevertheless , the double breasted suit provides a SCC individual a stylish look that draws just the right amount of attention. A more elegant, older look that will be appreciated by everyone you come in contact with if worn CORRECTLY. I couldn't have done it but it looks good on you.. Is what you will continue to hear from those are scared, not comfortable or unaware of such a beaut! 

The key to the double breasted is making sure it's fitted, tailored towards your body, which ultimately brings out your best features.
