The refined double breasted jacket
Jeppe in the leaf fall. He is a canny dresser. This time he sports a bespoke double breasted jacket and grey flannel trousers. Musella Dembech has crafted both garments. The jacket is made up from a vintage cloth, and the trousers are from a range of heavy flannels.
The jacket is defined by the wide long lapels that continue to the lower row of buttons, a 6 x 1 design. It looks great, although Jeppe’s jacket is a rule breaker. That is, many style guides specify that shorter guys should be careful with:
- a double breasted design
- large plaids
And, Jeppe’s jacket exhibits both. Moreover, long lapels are recommended for long legged tall guys mainly.
So, Jeppe is a sartorial rebel.
A succesful sartorial rebel, we should say. In spite of rule breaking the attire works. Jeppe looks comfortable, which is key to become elegant.
