The double breasted waist coat is absolutely hands down one of my favorite sartorial pieces I own.
If you want a great way to upgrade your sports coat game? Or even upgrade your suit game? Get a waistcoat! But even better, a double breasted waistcoat!
How to get one? I would say for me about 100% of the time I'm putting in a Made To Measure order for a double breasted waistcoat. And I'll say this again, Made To Measure is so important for style reasons! You can't find unique pieces like this just off the rack in some ordinary department store.
Where do I get mine from? I get all of my MTM DB waistcoats from Strong Suit Clothing! They fit great, and they're made out of great fabrics! The last couple of DB waistcoats I've purchased from Strong Suit has been made with VBC fabrics. And the pieces perform so well! Just walk into one of your Nordstrom stores and request to be shown strong suit. Not all of the Nordstrom stores have it but you can always have those fabrics shipped to that store so you can put in an order! I know for a fact the Nordstrom here in Nashville definitely offers it!
let me know what your thoughts are on the DB waist coat! And let me know if you'd like to add it to your wardrobe if so I can help get you an appointment!
Hope to hear from you gents soon.
