A wintry double-breasted jacket

Double-breasted

The double-breasted jacket has been crawling its way back for several seasons and autumn 2011 has made it a must-have for men.

It fell out of favour with the rise of minimalism and the skinny silhouette. Now we have moved into a more classic, traditional style, the double-breasted jacket is the outfit for a man who is the sum of style, authority and elegance.

For suits, 2011 seems to have it all. Suits with a classic fit and shape were shown by Hermes, while Versace and Z Zegna marched out sleek, modern versions with narrow shoulders, slim-fitting pants and single buttons.

Hot to trot

Country gents know how to dress for a brisk autumn day, with smart jackets, flannel coats and cosy knits creating a dapper look that exudes class.
