The 2 x 2 double breasted suit, the official unsung hero in menswear tailoring. Without an argument the 6 x 2 double breasted jacket is menswear’s latest obsession and I humbly admit that I am part of that crowd, yet there is something about the subtle elegance of the 2 x 2 double breasted jacket that has got me thinking of jumping ship. The 2 x 2 double breasted jacket is less distracting in comparison to the 6 x 2 jacket in my opinion; the absence of distracting additional buttons that the 6 x2 is known for quietly taking the double breasted jacket from the boardroom to the associates lunch table without losing its formal presence. This take on the 2 x 2 double breasted jacket by Saville row bespoke is exquisite! i love the button stance and the way it defines the torso, the button selection clearly turns this perfect example of craftsmanship into a quiet tornado.
