Double-breasted suits: wear with care

We aren't real keen on double-breasted suits around here, but it's not because there's anything inherently wrong with them—other than the fact that they look like crap when unbuttoned. Rather, it's that they really only work for a particular build of person. If you're tall, square-shouldered or athletic in build, the DB can enhance your stature with its sweeping lapels by strengthening the visual mass of your upper body.

If you're none of those things, however, a DB suit will make you look like Spongebob Squarepants is playing dress-up as a Little Caesar of the banking industry.
