Autumn winter 2011 brings back the biggest styles of the 1970s and particularly double breasted suits. Double breasted suit has made its way back into our lives and i am loving it.

In the 70s, the style of double breasted suits were traditional i.e. wide cut , long  jackets with standard width trousers, fast forward to 2011, we have the slimmer, shorter and suave looking suits.

The trousers are somewhat tapered and thats like most suits these days.

You can also get double breasted casual / sports jacket. how exciting… I love this!!

Be brave, try something new like Actor Michael B Jordan

Enjoy

    I love me a guy that can pull off the pocket square look. A “Fela Durotoye” type person. I’m loving the new fad, let’s hope it stays here long enough. I trust my Nigerian savvy hunks sha, i’m certain we shall be seeing them on Red carpets and wedding trains soonest. Can’t wait!
