The menswear classic is back – here’s how to do it in 2019.

Moss - copper cord double breasted suit



Forget the 80s’ boxy shapes or the baggy styles of gangster films, today’s double-breasted suits are carefully constructed with neater cuts, softer shoulders and a lightweight feel for a modern take on power dressing.

Moss - slim fit camel flannel suit

Who says double-breasted has to mean formal? We’ve updated the menswear stalwart in interesting tones, like the slim fit copper cord, and added a bit of stretch for a more comfortable fit that’ll make a powerful addition to smart-casual set-ups (especially if you throw a rollneck into the mix).

Alternatively, show you know your tailoring references and take on a double-breasted suit made from a recycled fabric – traditionally the garb of choice for power-play in the City, this one’s brought up to date with a slim fit and an on-trend camel colour.

Moss - navy black check suit

If you want to add a bit of interest to your DB, choose a patterned fabric that’s subtle and elegant but still makes a statement. Our navy black check is cut to a slim fit which sits snug across the shoulders and arms, sharpening the silhouette and making it a great contender for work or formal events.

Moss - light grey flannel double breasted suit

Of course, the double-breasted suit will really come into its own in more formal workplaces. Our light grey flannel sticks to the classic peak lapel which, along with our tailored fit, creates a flattering V-shape that slims your middle and broadens your chest and shoulders.

Moss - sage green double breasted tailored suit

True traditional DBs have up to eight buttons, but we’ve kept ours to a respectable six as a contemporary nod to the suit’s heritage, like on our tailored sage green suit. Although you can wear your double-breasted jacket undone, its verticle lines are designed to be worn buttoned up. Just remember not to fasten the outer bottom button.
