If you’re looking for a classic and upscale look fellas, double-breasted blazers are the way to go. Double breasted blazers represent sophistication, swagger, and are simply ostentatious. The popular blazer was introduced in the early 20’s in  America. When the blazer surfaced in the American Culture it was not fully accepted due to the fact the fashion editors of that time believed it was “Strictly limited to summer evenings and other equally informal occasions.”

Double breasted

A great example of  mens fashion that executed  the double-breasted blazer look perfectly would be in the American film The Great Gatsby. Everything we said about sophistication and swagger was depicted in this film. The style of the cast was very old school, however, a lot of the looks in the film can still be worn today and you still will remain one of the stylish men in the room wherever you are.

Drift away from the regular suit jacket guys, give your closet more life. If you’re going out to a black tie event or even a party, try on a double-breasted blazer. It does not hurt. Be different and Make A Statement with your sense of style.
